Giving permission to user 'edit own contact' will be able to update his own details. You can check permission by navigating to CiviCRM >> Administer >> Users and Permissions >> Permissions (Access Control) and then click on Wordpress access control

  • Hi After Saving permissions, I get Notice: Undefined index: administrator in /wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/CRM/ACL/Form/WordPress/Permissions.php on line 154 Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/CRM/ACL/Form/WordPress/Permissions.php:154) in /wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Utils/System/Base.php on line 926
