Our users trigger a “you don’t have permission to access this page” error when trying to make a contribution or opt out of an email. I’ve read some responses on SE about setting permissions for an anonymous user which seem related. But when I visit the “WordPress access control page” there is no column for Anonymous user permissions. What would cause that and how do I fix it?
I may have found the answer here. I created an anonymous_user role as described, and the column appears in the permissions page now. I am testing to see if the errors go away.
Edit: it does work. BTW this is not a multi site install as was described on the linked issue, but it worked here on our single site.
Administer > Users & Permissions > Permissions (Access Control), then
WordPress Access Control- what columns do you see? Maybe add a screenshot to your question.
