Having a major issue. I ticked the checkbox to hide the admin bar for a newly created user role.
I tried to log into the system by the wp admin url and it now the just reverts to the domain.com and never shows the admin area.
I then logged under admin role and un ticked this box and it still doesn’t load the wp-admin area at all. Any ideas to resolve this issue? I guess I can delete the role and start over… but just wanted to see if any has had the issue before.
Hiding admin bar should not prevent access to the wp-admin. I suppose that you have some plugin which has option like ‘prevent access to wp-admin’ in its settings. Try to deactivate all plugins. Will user with such custom role get access to wp-admin? If ‘Yes’, then activate plugins back one by one with new test in order to isolate one which causes a problem.
