I did a fresh install of WP4.2 today, but after playing for a while with setting up a custom user roles I realized that the built-in subscriber role is returning blank page instead of the dashboard.

Do you have the same problem?

    I would think so @MayeenulIslam, but the OP states "built-in subscriber role". Do you have debugging information? – s_ha_dum Apr 28 '15 at 13:44
  • @s_ha_dum good note. I somehow missed that. :( – Mayeenul Islam Apr 28 '15 at 14:20

I found an answer. It is because the WooCommerce plugin which prevents users without edit_posts capability to display dashboard.

Well, I think they should let you know that they are making this kind of change in WordPress default settings. Because you are not able to turn it off in WooCommerce settings.

  • I'm facing the same problem. Did you find a way to fix that? – rzepak Nov 18 '15 at 21:20
