User Role Editor
[resolved] Allow access to certian WP admin pages (3 posts)

    Is it possible to add to a users capabilities the ability to access certain WordPress admin pages?

    I want to allow a user to access /wp-admin/options-discussion.php without being able to access all options.

    Can this be done currently? If not, is it possible in a future update?

    Thanks :-)

    No, it's is not possible with help of URE plugin as WordPress uses the same 'manage_options' capability for all items of 'Settings' menu. I do not plan to invade on this territory with URE plugin.
    There are other plugins like 'Admin Menu Editor'
    (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/admin-menu-editor/)
    you can use to change menu item capability on the fly. Using URE and AME together you can customize WordPress menu permissions for your own needs.
