Custom Admin-Bar Favorites

Allows admins other users with a specially-defined user-capability to define a custom menu on the admin-bar of his or her favorite shortcuts.

What capability do non-Editors need to have and manage a menu?

The role needs to have the 'manage_personal_menu' capability.

How can you assign the 'manage_personal_menu' capability to a role?

There are many great plugins for assigning a capability to a role. However, you can manually add the role with the following lines of code:

    `global $wp_roles;`
    `$wp_roles->add_cap("editor", "manage_personal_menu", true);`

The above line adds the capability to the Editor role. Replace 'editor' with whatever role you wish to assign the capability.

Why can't users with the 'manage_personal_menu' capability manage their bookmarks in the same way an administrator can?

The user must have the 'edit_theme_options' capability to be able to edit a navigational menu. Without that capability, he or she will not be able to use the menus interface and must use a different interface instead.

Why are there menus labeled 'favoritesBar' followed by a number?

Each user gets a favorites bar menu followed by their User ID. Editing a favorites bar with a User ID not your own will effectively be editing a different user's menu.
