      I purchased this add-on today for my site. I am the site admin. I set up capabilities to restrict permissions for managers to eliminate any temptation to edit settings that only the admins should use. Everything worked great… except that it’s not recognizing me as the store admin. So I essentially locked myself out of many features, including the WP-Admin menu. I was able to figure out a way to deactivate the plugin so I could regain access to my site. I then deleted the plugin and reinstalled, hoping I could start fresh with editing capabilities and see if I could figure out how to make myself a store admin. Unfortunately, the same exact settings were still in place on the 2nd install. Because I restricted capabilities editing, I am pretty powerless in addressing the issue on my own.

      Can anyone help me? If it will work the way I need it to, this will be a really helpful tool for us.

      Thank you!

      That’s something really mysterious. WCFM has no control or restriction over ADMIN user.

      Please be sure, your account is not Shop Manager?

      Between, are you using a Multi-site setup?

      Thank You
