I have a website for a service club at http://qbsunriserotary.ca.  We post things publically but internal club business posts are marked private.  Roles are set up so club members who are logged in can see private posts.  That works fine but members who are logged in and do a search only see public content.  Even making club members editors doesn't seem to change it.  I have been stuck on this for a long time, usual searches haven't produced a solution.  Is there a way to enable logged in users to see private content in a search?  Only seems to work for me as administrator.

The default WordPress behavior is to allow "Editor" roles to see private posts. (Just verified that on one of my sites to make sure).

It's possible that the theme you are using (or a plugin, perhaps) extends the functionality of roles by changing privileges or adding roles.

Excellent software. Works flawlessly on my Samsung phone but it often crashes when I hit reply on my Nexus 7 tablet. I thought I would uninstall and reinstall it but it says I have to deactivate it first. Deactivate button doesn't work. Any hints?

I found it slow at first, but on further use it seems better or maybe I just got used to it.  What really troubles me is that even though I don't use the Gmail app, it can't be killed and it grabs all my email accounts without my permission.
 
I would advise holding off on updating a Nexus 7 2012 edition to Lollipop.  After I updated my Nexus 7 to lollipop it is extremely slow.  I tried limiting the number of background processes to 2 but it did not help.

Lots of breathless stuff about how Gmail app in 5.0 can deal with all your email accounts.  If you want that, great, but there seems to be no way out for those, like me, that don't want email in the great big database.  They just grab it all, no please, no thank you and no permission.  Looking for a way to kill the out of control Gmail app and another android email app that keeps my stuff private and works with imap and exchange.  Don't mind paying for it, but nothing found so far.

Nexus 7  - 
 
So the OTA update to Android 5.0 came through on my original version Nexus 7 came through the other night.  My uneasiness with being on display in the google aquarium went over the top when the Gmail app, that I don't use, grabbed all my other email accounts and imported them without my permission.  I shut the thing down but is still runs and I see it has email now from my other accounts.  Sounds like something Facebook would do.

Anyway, I got my hands on a newer version of a Nexus 7 and eagerly installed Ubuntu Touch.  It was ann0unced with fan fare last year as coming out soon on phones and tablets.  I love ubuntu on my desktop, it's the best.  But the tablet version is far from ready.  No Firefox.  No thunderbird or any other useable email app besides the even GMail as far as I can tell.  No Keepass.  Facebook web act worked.  Twitter web app didn't.  It is a pre-alpha version.  That is a disappointment.

So I am back to my first version Nexus 7.  If I can't stop Gmail from grabbing all my email accounts, I will have to get rid of it.  Android seems to be hard wired to prevent me from doing that. 

There used to be a time when Google did no evil.  I guess that is no longer operative.

Can anyone tell me how to kill the Gmail app?

Hey +John Scott​ I gave your rudeness the benefit of the doubt first time round when you lectured me and called me naive. Now you are telling me I understood nothing you said which is the same as calling me ignorant. Last chance. Would like to be civil with you but you don't seem to want to go in that direction. If you are ill mannered again I will be a man of few words and greet you with two of them. Let's not go there. Up to you.

I have one of the original Nexus 7 tablets which are not supported by Ubuntu 14.04 or following.  I want to move away from Android to an operating system that is less intensive to poke around in my online life.  I am thinking of installing Ubuntu 13.10.  I wonder if it is useable at that point in its development.  Seems like it wasn't when this was written: http://www.networkworld.com/article/2225608/opensource-subnet/review--ubuntu-touch-on-a-nexus-7-is-almost-awesome.html
I installed Ubuntu Touch "1.0" on my first-generation Nexus 7 tablet and have been using it as my main tablet system for the last four days. Here's how it went.

MailWise is an excellent email app but I am having trouble with it crashing when I hit reply. In play store it says it must be deactivated before uninstalling. I cant find a way to do that. I want to reinstall it and see if it works correctly like it does on my phone. Have others run across this?

Go to Settings, Apps. Open All email apps and Clear Defaults, Cache and Data. Uninstall if possible. Don't bother uninstalling updates on the ones you can't. Reinstall Mailwise; redo settings/preferences and resync. That's about the best you can do without using to enable root access.

The people designed the Brother D200 label maker are pretty blatant about making sure you use a lot of expensive label tape.  Shameful.

+C. Anthony Esposito II Yes, Ubuntu is not based on Android. It's nothing like the relation ship to Ubuntu, that Mint has. You cannot take an Android app from the Play Store and run it on Ubuntu. You cannot take an .apk from anywhere, and run it on Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is not "based on Android" at all. There is a huge difference between what "based on" means, and what "running on the same kernel as" means. You seem to be unable to grasp that difference. If you want to see something that is "based on Android" then go look at the FlyMe OS from Meizu, or Amazon's FireOS on their Fire phone/tablet offerings. Those are what you are describing. Ubuntu is not that. If Ubuntu were that, then I would certainly say that it was based on Android. But it is not.

I (and everyone else working on Ubuntu for the phone) will very happily state any attribution to Android, up to the amount we actually have any reason to attribute to it, and we have even done so clearly, in this petty argument.

It is time to dump Android.  My old Nexus 7 tablet got an update to its OS last night.  As soon as it was done, without giving me any choice about it, the Gmail app, which I don't use, announced it was importing all of  my various email accounts.  So much for Google doing no evil.  Hope to see Ubuntu on my next phone and my next tablet. In the meantime, I have killed the Gmail app and need to find something less nosey.

Have used them twice in the last month. Good cars, cheaper than on airport. Bring proof of insurance is you want to decline theirs. Need to allow extra time to get to flight for shuttle. Despite reviews I was happy with them and will use them again.

They had the blues playing last night when I was here. Tonight they had something else but changed it back on request. Right on the Corniche, good food, excellent staff.
