Post Types Order
[resolved] Unusable warning + Default settings wrong !!!! (3 posts)

    Hello and thank you for a very nice plugin.
    I am using wordpress multisite v 3.2.1 and Post Types Order v1.5.1

    I must say I haven't thoroughly tested your plugin but at first glance...

    1. When logged-in as a contributer all the way down to a subscriber a read a warning message that redirects me to:
    /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=cpto-options
    Which takes me to a "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page".
    Pointless since no-one else has any access to that page other than admins or super-admins. And very alarming to everyone as well.

    2. Not only this but I also believe you didn't give enough thought to your default settings.
    I think you have the wrong hierarchy. They should default (I mean out of the box) to the admin {or even just the super-admin for multi-sites} and NOT the subscriber.

    I believe that when those issues are resolved you will present a much improved plugin.

    I hope I helped a bit. :)
    Thanks again.

    Thanks for your feedback.
    1) Look's like you try to access the plugin options page when you are loged-in as non-admin, but this really appear only for admins, this is the reason for why it return the error. The only way i think of, is that you might opened 2 instances of your browser and then logged-out into one of them? Then accessing the option page will not work anymore as expected.

    I never received such issue report, but if you think this is not a mistake on your side, can you please contact us with your blog and a log-in so i can check into this?

    2) Many peoples where confused before on how they make the plugin to work with editor, or contributor role, that's why we changed this to subscriber as default, and i think will stay that way.
    But we will add a description within the options page to better understand the meaning of 'Minimum Level to use this plugin' option.

    Thank you for the reply

    1. I won't be able to test it right now but will later and get back to you with the results.

    2. The only reason I mention this is because it sounds much more reasonable to me for the admin to be default. I mean if a client forgets to set it up then every user on the site is able to rearrange the posts. :/
    By the way I haven't tested the following:
    If contributor John changes the post order, does this mean that the order changes for admin Mary as well? And if contributor Mark changes them back? And editor Paul...?
    Sine I manage a multisite, is there a hierarchy for the order? Or is it that every user sees them ONLY the way the changed the order? Is the plugin cookie user or site dependent?

    Thanks again :)
