    Hi,

    Thanks for all the support for WLCMS, we really appreciate it, and in the next version we want to tackle the show/hide issues people are highlighting in the menu system.

    So we are opening this discussion up to you guys, the ones who use WLMCS every day.

    Lets us know what it is you want exactly.

    Lets start the discussion.

    Thanks

    I use this for every single site I setup, and I find that even though the menu options for WLCMS have "show theme options" as a tick/untick option, it seems to never show the theme settings for editor users.
    I want to be sure that if my client is using a customised theme, then they can enter into that customised theme's options to access its menu and homepage settings. I'm finding this issue mainly happens with themes from http://www.elegantthemes.com.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I might be wrong, but I think the reason why this is happening is because theme requires you to have a certain capabilities which is different to the capabilities of being able to see the appearance menu.

    There does not exist in WordPress a way of saying editors can only see this, Admins can only see that. Its done through capabilities, and each plugin does it in a slightly different way. You could however use CSS to hide menus based on the user role, but that would require them being visible in the first place.

    A possibility is to create a new user role which is the same as a admin, but would allow you to say anyone with the "client-admin" user role, can't see x and y.

    We will have to look into this further though and we are just bouncing around ideas here.

    For me the live chat plugin would be great, aswell as gravity forms (show the menu item + dashboard for editors and shopmanagers). I actually think it would be better for you guys to make a poll so you can find out for what plugins there is the most need to, to implement in the wlcms plugin.

    Hi Frano09,

    Thanks for getting involved. I don't think it is practical for use to pick and choose plugins to modify, rather provide a solution which works for every plugin.

    If we were to create a new user role called something like "client-admin", which would allow you to pick and choose everything at appears, would that solve your problem?

    Thanks

    What I'm missing is the option to give someone (not only the admin=me) access to create new users and confirm new subscribers

    ....or create a client-admin where I can choose all options manually like you suggested

    Hi, I solved my problem in regard to adding members as an editor using the following method:

    1. Download this plugin
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/

    2. Set user roles for editor accordingly in the plugins menu (just placing checkmarks)

    3. Press update inside the plugin menu

    4. deactivate plugin - done -

    Now editors can add new members.

    Maybe you guys wanna play around a little and see what else you can enable for editors

    p.s.: @video user manuals
    left a comment in your blog - looking forward to beta test your plugin update :)

    @ plugin author

    any progress on the new update yet?

    I signed up for your beta-test invite on day one but haven't received any details for participation yet. So I'm just wondering if it's still happening.

    Hi,

    Trust me when I say we are still working on this, and doing our best to get it to you asap. What is a simple idea in theory is turning out to be quite hard to implement in practise, but please bare with us.

    Thanks
    Brian

    "What is a simple idea in theory is turning out to be quite hard to implement in practise"

    that most certainly applies to most things in life :)

    I'm also not trying to put on any pressure here - It's a free plugin so I'm happy if it's coming at all :)

    Potentially great plugin, but hiding essential plugins (such as Royalslider) from left hand menu bar. I need editors to be able to use this plugin to add images to their galleries!

    Hi,
    not sure if this is relevant here.

    My show/hide issue is that WLCMS doesn't seem to pick up on meta boxes that have been added by other plugins.

    So they don't appear in the hide metaboxes section.

    Hi,

    Yes that will always be an issue we think, there is no simple fix for that.

    Hi,

    I have Gravity Forms installed and my client HAS to be able to access the "Forms" menu on the left side in order to get the form info out.

    Any ideas on how to make the Gravity Forms Forms menu on the left show up?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Hi Brett,

    If you send a support ticket on our website http://www.videousermanuals.com/ I can give you the beta version of the plugin which should solve this issue.

    If you are happy to take the beta version for a test drive.

    Let me know.

    Thanks
