Description

By default Paid Memberships Pro will not let an administrator get access to a protected post or page without making the administrator a member of one of the membership levels that are required for that post/page in the “Require Membership” checkboxes in the post/page editor.

This is contrary to what a traditional interpretation of the “Administrator” role represents for WordPress (or any user based security system). People expect the administrator/root account(s) on the system to have full access to administer and view the content on the site.

This behavior also represents one of the frequent problems experienced when trying to use a WordPress front-end post or page editor; The expected content for the post/page being edited either doesn’t show up, or is being redirected away from.

This plugin will remove the PMPro access restrictions to content for any user assigned to the WordPress ‘administrator’ role.

As of version 1.2, the same functionality has been extended to the PMPro [membership] short code.
This plugin should be used with caution!
