CMS Tree Page View

    Hi,
    Currently when a user with Editor role/permissions logs into my WordPress admin they can't see the CMS Tree Page View menu.
    I wanted to know if I can make CMS Tree Page View available for user who have Editor permissions.
    Is this possible?
    Thanks,
    Peter

    Having the same problem here as well. Oddly enough, CMS Page Tree View will show pages with scoped permissions (via Role Scope) for somebody who is not an editor.

    I'll take a look at this. Perhaps an option in the settings where you can choose who can see the tree? What do you think about that?

    I think that could be useful, but I think the behavior for a person with a scoped role is actually correct - it only shows pages for which they have editing permission. However, since an editor should have editing permission for all pages on a site, the page tree view should show for them, but right now all it shows is an empty tree.

    In the next version I've changed so editors get the tree in the menu and veryone with edit_pages-capability can see it on the dashboard.

    What do you think: is this logical/ok/the right way?

    well actually.. I just changed it so all that is required is edit_pages, for both dashboard and menu.

    All pages show for all users, even if they do not have editing permissions for that particular page. I think it should probably only show pages for which that user has permission to edit.

    Previously a non-admin, non-editor user who had scoped permissions was able to only see pages that they could edit.

    Yes, you're right. I'll take a look at this until the next update.

    Thanks for letting me know.
