WP-CMS Post Control
[resolved] How to use with custom roles (2 posts)

    First - thank you for this excellent plug-in! I have wanted to simplify the add-post screen for my site members (a lot of them are not very technology literate) and this promises to do just that!!

    However, in my quest to simplify WP as much as possible for my users I am already using the MEMBERS plug-in to create a custom role of "member" This is the default for accounts and is similar to author. In effect I only have two roles: Administrators and Members. This is very useful, especially when people post things they want restricting just to other members.

    I realise that this is my own fault and so don't have expectations, but it may be that there is a more general need for your plug-in to support custom roles defined in the database?

    Hi Ian,
    I've had this on my list for quite a while - at the moment the standard WordPress roles are hardcoded in, which is not really too clever and will create issues when you are using custom roles.

    This is right near the top of my list to complete, however I'm so busy with my proper (paid!) work I have limited time to support my Open Source projects.

    I sadly can't give you an estimate on when this could be complete - it's likely to be early next year. However, in the meantime you would certainly be welcome hack-up this plugin to support your custom roles with a-little knowledge of PHP ;)
