WordPress 2.1.2 permission bug workarounds

You: “Pesky spammers filling up my comment moderation queue… this’ll teach them!”
WordPress: “You don’t have permission to do that.”

So it’s more widespread that I first thought, this permissions issue applies when attempting to delete a category, remove a comment as well as adding a category.

Deleting a post or page

From the Mange > Posts or Manage > Page page within the Admistrative back-end:

  1. Press the Edit button beside the post you wish to remove
  2. Press the Delete this post button below the post editor and extra features (Optional excerpts, Trackbacks, Custom Fields)

Removing a comment

From the Comments page within the Admistrative back-end:

  1. Press the Edit button beside the comment you wish to remove
  2. Press the Delete this comment button within the Advanced region; below the comment editor

Leave a Comment
