[resolved] Add WP Google Maps Capability to Select Roles (2 posts)

    Hi, currently only Adminsitrators can see the Maps plugin.

    However, I want Authors and Editors who are logged in to be able to add markers to our custom map.

    How can I add this capability for these roles?

    Hi there
    Open the basic plugin in an editor and search for "manage_options". Change it to the following depending on what user role you would like to be able to create, edit and add markers to maps:

    Editor: change all existing "manage_options" to "edit_pages"
    Author: change all existing "manage_otpions" to "publish_posts"
    Contributor: change all existing "manage_options" to "edit_posts"
    Subscriber: change all existing "manage_options" to "read"

    There should be a total of 3 "manage_options" to change.

    Kind regards
