Tweet Old Post Permission Issue

Tweet Old Post permission issue

Lot of people are not able to access the tweet old post and buffer my post admin page. If you are not able to see the admin page and you are admin of the site try this fix.


“You do not have enough permission to set the option. Please contact your admin”


Login to wordpress -> Go to Plugins -> Editor -> Select Tweet Old Post on right top, in Select plugin to edit.
Plugin Editor

Plugin Editor

Edit Plugin

Edit Plugin Tweet Old Post

Click on top_admin.php on the right and make the below change

 if (current_user_can(‘edit_plugins’))


if (current_user_can(‘activate_plugins’))


Let me know if that solved the problem.

    Hello, first I want to thank you for this plugin (tweet old posts for wordpress).

    I was using it a few days ago, when I deauthorized to re-authorize because the plugin wasnt posting on twitter, now I’m trying to autenticate but it is impossible, the “Sign-in with twitter” button is not working and redirects to the settings page of the plugín. I’ve tried to re-install and changing the oauth keys with my app key but stills don’t work. I hope there’s a fix for this.

    By te way, this is the only twitter plugin that I have (without counting Jetpack) so I don think that others plugins could interfere. (even I deactivated all plugins and tried re-installing)


  • I have the same problem like Andy, i edited the file top-admin.php just like you said, and the plugin settings worked good, but whet i try to sing with twitter, the callback URL it´s not working good, i try to edit the tweet-old-post/Include/top-oauth.php, with something like callback cariable name, and i found a line with a comment just like this:

    //$params[‘oauth_callback’] = ‘http://’ . $_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’] . $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’] . ‘&TOP_oauth=1’;

    i was uncomment the line and tasting but, not work at all, it´s the same thing.

    pls give us a solution 🙂
