We have a previous WPMU installation that has been upgraded to a WordPress Multisites installation. Since upgrading to 3.3.2 from 3.2.1 we have problem with editors/admin not being able to post on some of their blogs. They see a "Submit for review" button instead of "Publish" despite being admins or authors.
My first hunch while looking in the database was that the users having the problems all had their capabilities stored in the new way:
while users with capabilities stored in the old way:
seemed to have no problems. But even after manually changing this in the database the problems was the same.
Also tried to change
wp_usermeta to a value used for the same author in another blog where he could post with no change.
Then tried to register a complete new user and give it admin rights. Also got "Submit for review" button.
The super admin is also unable to publish and gets the message "Are you sure you want to do this?" upon publish.
How do I fix this?
