New User Approve
Approval by site administrator? (3 posts)

    I’m using the plugin on the latest version of WordPress Multisite. I works perfectly – except for one thing. The only role which can see it on the admin panel is Super Admin. I need it to be seen/used by the site Administrator role. I’m not a coder. I don’t see anyplace to set the role for administration. Is there something I can do to change it? Thanks

    From reading the code, it looks to me like any user with "edit_users" permissions should be see the Approve Users page. However, it looks like on MU installs at least at one point it was more complicated than that. Maybe this will help.

    One thing you could do that worked for me is edit capabilities.php which is in the wp-includes folder. Go to line 95 where it has the following:

    if ( is_multisite() && !is_super_admin( $user_id ) )

    and get rid of "super" so it looks like this:

    if ( is_multisite() && !is_admin( $user_id ) )

    Blog admins won't be able to edit users, but it will give them access to the New User Approve section. Please let me know if this helps.
