user access – Why does edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category return “You need a higher level of permission.”
The latest version of 5.8.2 is deployed. The user logged in has administrator capabilities.
It seems that “Link Categories” are hidden for installs greater than 3.5 – https://codex.wordpress.org/Links_Link_Categories_Screen
Although hidden, outputting the values of the
$submenu, it returns a URL i.e.
print_rgenerates the following:
 => Array (  => Link Categories  => manage_categories  => edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category ) )
When attempting to access the URI, it displays
You need a higher level of permission. Sorry, you are not allowed to manage terms in this taxonomy.
- Why is the message displayed?
- Why is the URI returned when calling the global variable
- Is it still a valid option and if yes, other what scenarios and how would it be accessible?
