I was recently contacted by a listener of WordPress Weekly and they offered a topic of discussion for a future show. I wanted to know what you folks thought first.
Topic for discussion- is their a need for a Reset WordPress Permissions plugin? There seems to be a lot of discussion around plugins and themes not being able to access certain wp-content files and folders.
Here’s an example I ran into last month. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/export-doesn’t-work-no-data-to-export
It looks like the plugin mentioned in the URL above has put in a fix to automatically detect and fix the problem. Can a WordPress plugin actually change permission settings on a server or of certain directories?
