EasyRotator for WordPress - Slider Plugin
[resolved] [Plugin: EasyRotator for WordPress - Slider Builder] possible to stop the popup / dismiss thing? (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I installed this plugin because I want it to be relatively easy for non-technical people to upload photos for a semi-regularly changing 'headlines' area.

    I don't mind the install for the administrators, but even when regular users / subscribers register or login, they receive the same pop-up to install what is necessary for the plugin or creating rotators, and it's not really something they need to see. Is it possible to disable the pop-up?

    Thanks!

    Hi @slackgeek,

    Thanks for using EasyRotator for WordPress. Please make sure that you've clicked the "dismiss" option on the welcome bar that appears at the top of each dashboard screen. That should avoid any problems.

    Sincerely,
    Drew O'Neill

    Hi Drew,

    Thank you for your reply. I did click the Dismiss button for myself, but each new user that logs in or registers has it pop up as well. I know it is as simple as dismissing it once, and I don't care for Administrators or anyone that will be adding images to the rotation, but Subscribers login and it pops up and confuses them. It's a very large organization where several hundred people will be logging in and was hoping to avoid some of the confusion.

    If not, no worries. I was just wondering if there was a way to permanently dismiss it.

    Hi @slackgeek,

    You can make this change if you manually make a change to the easyrotator-for-wordpress/easyrotator.php plugin file. Around line 418, inside the hook_admin_notices method, you'll see this code:

    // Show the welcome/setup notice if needed

    Immediately before that line, add these two new lines:

    if (!current_user_can('add_users'))
       return;

    You may want to choose a different permission from add_users for the check; you can learn more about available options here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

    Sincerely,
    Drew O'Neill

    That's perfect. Thank you! I really appreciate it. We just have a lot of people who will be subscribers only, for commenting purposes, and many are (beyond) non-technical so I was trying to avoid an influx of confusion and questions. The blog is integrated with Active Directory on our intranet, and every time a user on the network logs in, it immediately takes them to their profile page with that pop-up. Much better this way!

    Thanks again!
    Jennifer
