User Role Editor

    Hello All,

    I created a new role, 'Manager' and assigned it add_users and create_users.

    Logged in as a 'Manager' I do not have rights to add Users.

    Anything I should look for?

    TYIA,

    You need to have 'list_users' capability in order to get access to the 'Users' menu, under which "Add User' menu item is placed.

    Adding
    add_users
    create_users
    list_users

    to a profile (f.i. author or editor)

    only allows them to list the users, not to create them (WP 3.3)

    There is some issue with my environment, probably to due with WP Multi Network, that was not allowing this to work.

    In a fresh install of WordPress Multisite and the Members plugin it works as expected.

    Hmmm, I got this figured out with two different plugins but forget exactly how, but it is working now.

    To cover all instances, here are the permissions you need to give to a user to give them control over creating and editing users with a lower lever than themselves:

    add_users
    create_users
    delete_users
    edit_users
    list_users
    remove_users
