User role editor compatibility issues (2 posts)

    I'm setting up a publishing oriented social network with some complex permissions and I had trouble getting this plugin working. I couldn't see the meta-box as any user and did't quite understand the FAQ.

    Your user level has broadcast access (Broadcast access role)

    There's no "broadcast access" role in my user role editor. There must be incompatibilities between this and the "User Role Editor" plugin. I can add "role_broadcast" in the "add capabilities" field however and when a user has that checked off, everything appears to be fine. I looked at "inputs on line 217 of ThreeWP_Broadcast.php and there seems to be a huge number of roles. Are they all needed to work properly?

    I also didn't know what this meant in the FAQ -

    After looking at other plugins which deal with permissions, it's evident that this one could be coded better to accommodate custom roles and capabilities. Could the developer release an update which adds dynamic adding and listing of capabilities and roles?

    The other plugin I looked at which plays nicely with dynamic permissions is, "Login With Ajax" - http://netweblogic.com/wordpress/plugins/login-with-ajax/. I'm sure the dashboard settings page has the snippets you'd need.

    PS: You're not the only one, "New Blog Defaults" also hard-coded their roles.
