User role permissions have been modified?

Hello,
We have had a recently have had a problem with any user role not being able to publish pages, posts or CPT's or do anything really unless they have their roles changed to "Admin". Please advise. Thanks, Phil

    There is not a User Role plugin installed. It's possible there was one installed in the past. A "Event Contributor" has been added. I have only been working on this site for a month. I was thinking about using that plugin. I also looked at the SQL table that has the user capability's. I parsed the code a bit and cannot see (not that good with SQL) anything wrong. I do see that the the value is true for everything these roles should be doing.

    Do you think this was caused by Events +
    Will that plugin help even if the database is not the problem?

    Here is the SQL I am looking at(It's parsed only by the Roles but everything looks good to me):

    Hi,

    The User role editor, should be able to help. It will allow you to see the capabilities a lot more clearly without looking at the DB, and also it has a reset to default function too.

    But that SQL values look fine. Events+ shouldn't change other roles, it just adds events type capabilities. But that role doesn't look like it was created by our Events+ plugin.

    Thanks

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
