Capability Manager Enhanced

A simple way to manage WordPress roles and capabilities.

How can I grant capabilities for a custom post type

The custom post type must be defined to impose type-specific capability requirements. This is normally done by setting the "capability type" property equal to the post type name.

I have configured a role to edit a custom post type. Why do the users still see "You are not allowed the edit this post?" when they try to save/submit a new post?

Probably because your custom post type definition not having map_meta_cap set true. If you are calling register_post_type manually, just add this property to the options array. Unfortunately, none of the free CPT plugins deal with this important detail.

Where can I find more information about this plugin, usage and support ?
