WordPress 3.0.2 (activation issue)

A change in the latest version of WordPress (probably related to one of their security fixes) has caused OIO to break when being activated. You will most likely see the error message “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page”. This issue is likely to affect all versions of OIO.

Here’s what to do to fix the issue, depending on your current situation:

1.) You haven’t yet upgraded to v2.4, but want to

Upgrade to v2.4 as normal, it now contains a fix for the issue described above.

2.) You’ve already upgraded to v2.4 and are experiencing the problem

Download the latest version of OIO (from here) and upload the file “/platform/wordpress/functions.php” again.

3.) You’ve not got v2.4 installed and aren’t thinking about upgrading

Upgrade to v2.4 if you can, otherwise you’ll need to make a manual code change to your current version. Open the file “/platform/wordpress/functions.php” and delete the following lines of code near the top of that file:

@header(“Location: ” . oiopub_admin_home_url() . $welcome);

As a final step (in all cases), you may need to de-activate OIO from the WordPress plugins menu in the admin area, then re-activate it. Job done!

The WordPress error message is “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”
Please add error messages to help customers find the right information.

Thanks for this…this has worked.

I have just activated OIO for wordpress 3.02 and I’m not seeing the error. Should I expect to see the error later on, or am I worrying over nothing?

Should be nothing to worry about, as you’d have already seen the error by now. Also, if you’ve downloaded OIO recently, it would already contain the fix.

I have tried everything from restoring the full site backup, to uninstalling the plugin and re-installing it, to uploading the ‘platform/wordpress/functions.php file. Nothing has worked. It’s the weekend, I want to make a post, and I can’t.
I can’t access my postings or static pages for lack of permissions.
