FAQ Manager
Limited user access (7 posts)

    First of all, thanks for this great plugin!

    The only thing that's bothering me is that users that do not have the Administrator user role are still able to access the FAQ plugin in the sidebar of the dashboard.

    Is it possible to add a feature that allows the administrator to select who's able to see and use FAQ manager?

    Thanks!

    The post type inherits the permissions of regular posts. Are you allowing users access to posts?

    I plan on including the ability to use Justin Tadlock's Members plugin as an option for control purposes in a future release.

    I'm using the WordPress default user roles. I would love it if I could set it up so only administrators are able to see the FAQs menu in the sidebar. I don't want Contributors to be able to see/access that part of the dashboard. And yes, I have about 14 or 15 contributors on my WordPress blog.

    OK. I've got a message out to Justin about the best way to integrate with the Members plugin. There isn't a way currently to turn that off and on within the existing codebase.

    Thanks!

    I think the same (or similar) result could be achieved by adding an ID to the DIV the FAQ Manager plugin is in, so it can be hidden by the myEASYhider plugin.

    Edit: Oh, I just realised I can use the 'menu-posts-question' ID for that.

    It's not perfect, but it's a nice temporary solution.

    I wasn't aware of that plugin. That's a nice stop-gap for now, thanks for the heads up!

    You're welcome! The only downside to that is that I have to bookmark the FAQ pages in my browser, so it's not 100% secure/perfect but it works for now. :)
