Missing Admin Bar or blocked Admin access when also using Woocommerce?
Woocommerce blocks users without the edit_posts cabailbility from seeing the admin bar or accessing the admin.
The following code snippet can resolve this:

function ee_do_not_prevent_admin_access_with_woocommerce() {
return false;
}
add_action( 'admin_init', 'ee_allow_master_admin_admin_access_with_woocommerce');
function ee_allow_master_admin_admin_access_with_woocommerce() {
if ( current_user_can( 'espresso_event_admin' ) ) {
add_filter( 'woocommerce_prevent_admin_access', 'ee_do_not_prevent_admin_access_with_woocommerce' );
add_filter( 'woocommerce_disable_admin_bar', 'ee_do_not_prevent_admin_access_with_woocommerce' );
}
}
