All of a sudden I'm not able to view all the standard posts.

For example, as anon users, you can see posts on this page: hidden link
But when I'm logged in as admin, I get the "No items found" message shown.
If I deactivate Toolset Access plugin I can view posts.
Where should I start troubleshooting this?

Hi Dean

Have you made any modifications in Access to administrator capabilities? (You would have had to go to Toolset > Access Control > Custom Roles and use the advanced mode to be able to modify core role capabilities.)

You can't remove administrator rights when setting up access controls for post types.

So the first thing I would suggest is that you switch theme to twentynineteen and disable all plugins except Types and Access. Are you still unable to see the posts?

You can only not see them on the front-end, or you can't edit them on the back-end either?


Funny! I changed the Access settings a bit, then reverted the changes. Now I'm able to see the posts again. So I guess there wasn't any problem in the first place.
