Lock posts prevents category archive view

If I use lock posts all roles can view my posts if they go directly to the post url

Http://mysite.com/blog/a-post-about-shoes

but if they try to view the category archive

http://mysite.com/blog/category/shoes/

then some posts are only visible by super admin roles, whether or not they are locked. Other standard roles with read capability cannot see them.

If I deactivate the lock posts plugin then all roles can read the post.

Question... I thought that Lock Posts meant prevent other users from changing the locked post. It seems that it is preventing other roles from viewing the post category archive.

How do I fix?

Thanks.

    Hi @Atlanta

    I thought that Lock Posts meant prevent other users from changing the locked post.

    That is exactly what it should do.

    It seems that it is preventing other roles from viewing the post category archive.

    That is something it should not do, and I cannot reproduce that behavior on my test site. I tried with several different roles and users, and all can view the posts, but cannot edit them.

    Is this occurring on a new site or a mature one? Is it a new plugin install, or did this begin occurring recently?

    Have you tested for script conflicts by deactivating all other plugins and reverting to a default theme?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
