Missing ADD MEDIA
@pjfbncil You mean Add Media in the Pages > Add New panel or the Posts > Add New panel? BuddyPress does not remove Add Media button or functionality at all.
What plugins are activated in your installation? What theme are you using?
Theme is speed plugins buddypress bbpress jetpack When i log in as a registered user and go to post, the add media button is not there tried changing theme still the same. registered users cannot add media to a post or page HostsLikeMe
You mentioned you changed themes and the media button is still missing. What theme did you change to? BP Default or Twenty Twelve theme? Has to be either of BP/WP Default themes to make sure it’s not a theme issue. Have you tried deactivating jetpack and/or other plugins to troubleshoot the issue?
will try all that i posted in the other forum was told it was the wrong one
Nope tried default theme tried making everyone administrator only I get post with Add Media,. Reinstall wodpress? Start from scratch?
How did you install WP via webhost script or manual install e.g. via s/FTP or similar? Have you tried re-uploading WordPress manually?
I use Fantastico on my cPanel. I will re install it
Re installed BUT my original problem is assigning roles. In settings Anyone can register Author and Contributor DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO ADD MEDIA. If I assign the new registered user the role of Editor they can add media but they also can delete posts I want Author and Contributor to Add Media
Author and Contributor cannot add pages either. Sorry is this a WordPress thing?
@pjfbncil Contributors and Authors should be able to upload media by default. Have you tried deactivating plugins one by one except BuddyPress and checked which plugin/s might be causing the issue?
I tried all plugins without success. Including changing themes. After I reinstalled WordPress Author has add media button Contributor does not. Here is a picture This is the first tome I have used assigned roles. I have been self hosting wp for 3 years.
Where are you hosted? I suggest starting from scratch. This time, do not use Fantastico but install WordPress 3.5.1 manually, i.e., s/FTP upload.
uploaded wordpress 3,5.1 zip downloaded from wordpress. unzipped manually installed mysql installed buddypress with default buddypress theme manually created pages. contributor does not have add media. author does so will use author. thanks for your time i give up.
