Private Pages & Roles

    I am having a horrible time with Roles, Capabilities and basic “Private” pages.

    Even when logged in as Administrator, I cannot see private pages. (Forums and Contacts)

    I installed and configured User Role Editor and Capability Manager, but while they both say I have given a role access to read public pages, a test account can’t access them, either.

    I usually understand and follow help files well, but I just can’t figure out what silly thing I am doing wrong with these roles.

    User: Tester
    PW: TestAccount

    (As an aside, but I’m afraid to post this as a Question/Topic because I imagine you get it all of the time – this site appears to be different from Are they run by the same group? I Googled for another resource because my questions there go days/weeks with no response.)

    The blog I need help with is
