User Role Editor
Role Inheritance? (3 posts)

    Is there a way to inherit role permissions?

    For example. I have certain capabilities set for "Subscribers". Now I want to create a role to allow some people to upload files. I know I can copy the subscriber role and create a new role, i.e. "Subscriber - Upload". But if I make changes to the "Subscriber" role I'll also have to make the same changes to the "Subscriber - Upload" role. Is there any way to create a role that will inherit capabilities from another role?

    For this moment I use only WordPress built-in API to work with roles. As WordPress doesn't provide any role inheritance mechanism we have no such feature in URE plugin.

    Thanks for the feature request. I will think about the way how to realize it.

    Starting from version 3.10 User Role Editor allows to assign user multiple roles. This feature enhanced at version 3.11. It could be used instead of role inheritance for a while.
    You may download version 3.11 beta for testing from this link
