[resolved] Customize Roles In WordPress??? (7 posts)

    I am wondering if there is a way or a plugin that will allow me (the admin) to create Editors, and then edit what they can see when they login?

    For instance, I would like to have any of my editors that login to be able to access the widgets section, so they can edit content.

    It appears that the default role for an "Editor" is to be able to change content and posts only. I would like to add a few more things that they can do.

    Is this possible?

    Take a look at the Resources at the end of the Roles and Capabilites article for plugins that might help you.

    There's many plugins that do some sort of management like that....not sure which one best suits your needs...

    Great. Thanks for the quick responses. I just downloaded the Capabilities Manager plugin, and we will see how that one works for me!

    I downloaded the Roles manager plugin and placed it in the plugin directory but when I go to the Admin Panel the plugin is not there to activate. Before i go on to try another plugin, anybody have any suggestions?

    Using WP 2.9.1

    did you unzip the plugin?

    how did you upload? ftp? file manager?

    you can also install plugins straight from the admin panel of tyour WP

    Thanks for your response - I found the problem. I went back to the plugin directory, it was unzipped but I found that the plugin was in a double directory. In other words there were two directories called role manager one within the other? As always when you find the solution its always something simple - it should have been obvious. Your comments did help me - they led me to the problem. Thanks again.
