User Access Manager
Custom User Roles (5 posts)

    We have a role created 'Manager' which needs to be able to create user groups, but must be restricted from other admin-like capabilities. Has anyone figured out a way to accomplish this yet?

    I found a way to do this using the user-role-editor.

    Client needed a way for having a user type defined so they can each have their own private page. I found that by using this plugin to add new Roles, each having the same permissions as the subscriber, allowed me to create new user groups for just those users.

    Thanks for the response ddpweb. I was actually working with that same plugin. However that's not quite what I am looking to do. Right now with User Access Manager (UAM) you can set the 'minimum' level of user who is allowed to create groups, but it can only be standard WordPress user roles, it won't acknowledge custom roles.

    With the new version 1.2.1 there is a capability 'manage_user_groups' which should do the job.
