I just logged in to the admin I was going to install easy blogging beta to try out and before I can do anything I hit the Network Admin link top right and I get into it but if I click on anything else I get this notice
You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page
then I back up a page and get this notice

    Are you sure you're logged in as a Super admin and not just a site admin of those sites?

    What browser are you using? Try a different one - possibly a browser cache issue. Also, you may want to disable all plugins (change the name of the plugins directory in wp-content is one way).

    What was the last thing done on the site before this happened? A WordPress upgrade by any chance?

    Let us know. Thanks!

    Wow that was weird!
    I tried with IE9 and all was ok.
    Went in with FF5 and same thing I did clear cache and cookies before and it didn't help.
    I did it again this time and it was back to normal.
    the last thing I did was install the updates from Dev bar at top.
    all is well now Thanks for the fast help

  • HamRadioDude
    • HummingBird

    Yes WP Super Cache i will disable it now.
    I have been using IE since I wrote ithis and not a problem with IE
    I don't have issues with FF with any other cookie Software phpBB, phpLD or Other forums

    Another Thing I noticed that I had a reminder When I tried to log in with FF again it doesn't log out when you close the Browser like it used to do it say. It now says
    admin and
    log out
    on the meta menu until I clear cookies. I'm going to shut off wp Super cache now

    Ok, I'd also say that some caching plugins are pretty nasty about leaving elements behind on the install. You may want to manually verify that everything is removed (often a db.php file in the wp-content folder) to make sure that it's not still having an impact on your site.

    Let us know!

    I have been checking with two other computers and it does not happen with them.
    What did was completely uninstalled Fire Fox when it asked me to delete the user info I said yes to delete it.
    I reinstalled Firefox with a new download and reinstalled all the extensions. I have been logging in (x)ing out FF and logging in and logging out and have not had a problem with it so I guess something was flaky with my install of Firefox.. i do notice the load time for all sites are a lot faster.
    so it is once again resoled :>

    I have been doing a lot of testing with the AVH First Defense Against Spam emails clicking the links and the View suspected splog queue links from new blog email switching off IE 9 and FF 5 as Default Browsers and while it doesn't do it every time FF does have this problem above and IE never does.
    So its a FF problem you are correct. Now the question is how fix it. I'm off to Fire Foxes Support Site.

    Whew. That's quite the list.

    Would it be possible to deactivate them all and see if the issue continues? If it doesn't it means you have a rogue plugin somewhere. Time intensive to find... but might be worth it.

    You can use this technique to quickly deactivate/reactivate your plugins:

    Very big time-saver :slight_smile:

    That is one of the longest lists of active plugins I have ever seen - lol - WOW!

    I think masonjames might be right. - if it were anything but a browser issue (happens only in firefox) I would say it was a few other things. But I'm sure that number of plugins, increases the odds of things going wrong. I am just surprised nothing else is at fault -

    You are your own plugin compatibility list checker -
    MAN A: "Does plugin x work with y"
    MAN B: "I don't know - ask n2rga"


    You're looking for plugins that
    1) manipulate / change / add to / enlarge the wp-admin area
    2) And it probably won't be one plugin by itself - it might very well be a combination of 2 plugins conflicting off of each other.

    You've got a lot of code running rampant - lol

    Yeap. Unfortunately, with something like this, the best way to troubleshoot is to strip things down to the simplest possible configuration - just plan ole WordPress Multisite - and see if the problem still exists.

    From there, you can easily make an educated decision on where to go next. The tutorial I link to above allows you to easily deactivate/activate the plugins you currently have activated. It might be worth a look.

    And, while it's tempting to throw the entire kitchen sink on your site for your users, each new plugin adds another level of complication and stress on the install.

    At the end of the day, you may find the issue still exists - even with no plugins active. Then we know we should go a different direction - maybe re-install WordPress core files, maybe just never use firefox again :stuck_out_tongue:

    Hope we do get to the bottom of this though!

    i started having the same issue last nite with FF. i use chrome primarily but i like to test all browsers and i got the same message testing login with a sub user.

    wow i thought i was bad with 25 plugins. haha. i don't feel so bad now. :slight_smile: i tried narrowing it down but i need each one. *sigh* oh well! :slight_smile: maybe we should start a plugin support group? "hi my name is gina and i am a plugin addict!"

    just wanted to let you know you are not alone with the FF issue.

    maybe we should start a plugin support group? "hi my name is gina and i am a plugin addict!"

    HAHAHAHA I started laughing out loud my daughter gave me a strange look like we have to bring daddy to the funny farm now. hmmmmmm.

    If you can post your list of plugins so I can narrow it down or maybe its a firefox problem not a plug in causing ff to do it hmmm my head hurts :>
    if you don't want to post it send it to me by email to admin (at)

    hehe.. i know we can't be the only addicts out there.. :slight_smile:

    i think it is a firefox issue.. as i am not having the problem now.. and i have not changed my plugins.. weird.

    but.. just to let you know from your list of plugins (i will not be tempted! ha) these are the ones i also have installed:

    Hi n2rga,

    Just checking if it was eventually resolved in another thread? Or by yourself separately to us? Or by us over email with you? Or using our live support?

    If so, no need to reply, that's great news.

    If not, could you let us know by re-opening this topic, and we'll get onto it and helping you out asap!

    Otherwise, happy days, glad you got it sorted :slight_smile:

    Cheers, James
