Menu does not display on first login [GF 1.5RC4.2]

  1. How to replicate
    1. Create a new admin user
    2. Log in as that admin user, click on nothing.
    Assuming a standard WP build, you would expect the 'Forms' menu to appear under 'Pages'.
    3. Refresh

    Tested on Mac+Chrome and PC+IE

  2. We are aware of this behavior. If the Forms menu doesn't appear right away, but does on a refresh, it means how your site is executing code the code that determines if they have access to the Forms menu item or not is running after the menu is rendered so it doesn't get displayed until a new page load occurs.

    We can look at how we can prevent this from happening, but it is because Gravity Forms hooks into the role/capabilities system to allow for full role management capabilities using a plugin like the Members plugin and how this code executes. Most plugins don't do this and therefore don't run into this issue.
