    I love this plugin!!! We are using the Advanced Post Types Order on a network with the Members plugin, and want the ability to give custom roles access to use the plugin. I don't like hacking good plugins, so I thought i would make the suggestion here. Thanks, Nathan.

    You can use the custom roles along with the Advanced Post Types Order. You just need to add capabilities for the custom role of level_X where X is the number from 0 to 10. Then select from the plugin settings page the minimum level which can re-order and you are set.
    You can find a level hierarchy on that link http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities#User_Levels

    Not sure why, but when I try to add capability of "level_0" for example, it does not save. Also, I have the plugin set to Subscriber level, so it seems it would give anyone with a login the ability to sort. Very peculiar.

    This worked fine during our tests, which plugin do you use to set your custom roles? This works great http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-role-editor/screenshots/

    Also make sure your custom role actually have enough capabilities to read , edit_posts, delete_posts to see the post types menus and implicitly the re-order interface.
