One fine day, I discovered I was locked out of WordPress. At least, that is how I described it to myself. Furiously, I blamed the new theme I had installed. I changed the theme and found the same problem. I could not access options available for several themes. To be more accurate, I could access some of the options that were available in the live customiser, but not options available outside of the customiser. This was irritating (and before the recent changes to the customiser.)
I clicked through several plugins, and found that I could not access editor functions . I kept receiving error messages saying I did not have permission to do this.
I was know feeling extremely disempowered. I did not know enough to fix these issues, and most worryingly I knew not how deep the problem was. There was however only one possible source to this problem.
I had hired a designer to make some chances to the site, and paid his premium hourly fee. And he was trying to take me for ride.
