[resolved] multisite woothemes custom css and site administrators (3 posts)

    In need of some guidance/advice here.

    I have a multisite setup; most themes are from woothemes, in particular child themes of Canvas. At this point, I have added someone as a site administrator (not a superadmin) with the idea that she could update the theme options, etc.

    Today she tried adding some css to the custom css display option. No joy. Apparently this is written so that she cannot enter anything in the custom css box because administrators do not have the unfiltered_html capability.

    Them temporary solution is to make her a super admin. But, that is not a real, long term solution. I would like for admins to be able to do the custom css thing, but I definitely do not want them to be super admins.

    I see that there is a way to add custom css using JetPack. Don't know how that would work with the woo framework. And, will it have the same problem with capabilities?

    I'm open to suggestions, ideas, code to let admins (but not editors, etc) use unfiltered html... anything.

  2. Many WooThemes are purchased themes, and Canvas is one. In order to be a good steward of the community, and encourage companies like Woo, we generally send anyone with specific questions about premium products back to them. Basically, you paid for the theme and support, it's not nice of us to undercut their bottom line with free support :/

    see that there is a way to add custom css using JetPack. Don't know how that would work with the woo framework. And, will it have the same problem with capabilities?

    That I can answer for you. JetPack's CSS editor works with every theme I've ever seen, and has no issues with capabilities. However you will have to setup Jetpack on every site, since it needs to connect to their servers.

    I did just that -- I consulted with Woo and we came up with the same result: I will use JetPack for custom css, instead of the feature in the theme... because Multisite just won't allow me to use the Woo functionality without being a SuperAdmin... It is a pain to have to set up JetPack for every site, but at least it will do what I need.

    One reason for posting the question here was to try to determine if this is specific to the Woo themes/Woo framework, or is it a WP Multisite issue. Indeed, it seems that it might be a combination: I'm not sure how JetPack Custom CSS make CSS mods without incurring the gatekeeping for unfiltered_html whereas the woo theme options have a problem; but, since I have a solution I'll not waste any more time on it.

    And believe me, I use Woo support. You wouldn't be undercutting them at all.
