EventPress
[resolved] Unusable in Buddypress Authors Can't Post Events (7 posts)

    WP with Buddypress latest versions.

    Assigning role "event-creator" makes it so users cannot author regular blogs.

    Assigning role "Author" makes it so users cannot access Event creation menu on dashboard.

    Thus the plugin is unusable in buddypress.

    REQUEST - Tell me where you check user status and I'll add "or author status) when displaying plugin on user's dashboard.

    Authors should be able to access the event creation dashboard—I check for 'edit_event' capabilities at http://code.google.com/p/eventpress/source/browse/trunk/eventpress/views/admin.php line 97, enhance capabilities for all user types for events, and registrations at http://code.google.com/p/eventpress/source/browse/trunk/eventpress/models/events.php, line 279 and http://code.google.com/p/eventpress/source/browse/trunk/eventpress/models/registration.php, line 144 respectively. These functions are called when the plugin is initiated for the first time.

    Perhaps you can deactivate, and reactivate eventpress? Maybe the caps weren't created the first time around or got deleted for some reason.

    That fixed it....I should have tried that before tearing my hair out!!!

    Any suggestions on how we can add it to the drop-down very top menu bar on buddypress single user WP ?

    You mean in the buddybar? It should be coming there automatically In my Account>events.

    I haven't checked the behaviour in WP's new admin bar yet, though.

    My Account Dashboard Notifications

    It should be there just above "Log Out" in "My Account". Could another plugin be interfering?

    Oh duh...I see it. Sorry to be so blind. Thank you for bearing with me. I think I better drink another cup of coffee and get my eyes back in gear.
