Role Manager mystery... help oh help... (14 posts)

    I think there must me something wrong with the "Role Manager" plugin. Clearly, when you enable "Publish Posts" you would expect the user to be able to publish posts.

    No?

    The only way seems to be to also give permission to "Edit Posts", then the user can post. I am deeply mystified. Is there another setting that is in conflict with Role Manager?

    This is the last hurdle for me, but I'm stuck until it's solved...

    Anyone have a clue???

    Yes. I have a request in there, but no reply yet.
    Thanks for the thought.

    edit posts means edit their own posts. there is a separate capability for editing others posts. unless you specifically want to let people post, and never let them edit their post (which I think isn't very fair!), it pretty much will work the way you need. Just enable edit posts as well.

    btw, I believe these are core capabilities to wordpress, and although the role manager plugin let's you edit the roles, it didn't create these capabilities. it's really a shortcoming of wordpress if you don't think it works like it should. I'm personally good with it the way it is.

    Not sure if anyone will see this - but if you do - does anyone have a copy of this plugin available in the near future (ie going to sleep in twenty minutes and would just like to try it out before then!)

    No worries if not.

    Thought it was worth a shot!

    Sorry - I posted this on the wrong thread. I knew there was a downside to this tabbed browsing lark...

    I'll get my coat.

    *laughing* Oh hey, not to worry! There are WORSE things!

    So what plugin was it you were wanting?

    Hee hee.

    Well - it was this plugin! The Role Manager plugin from Owen Winkler. His site still seems to be down.

    Well, I'm now a bit confused, but that's okay. And not unusual.

    I can't help you with the plugin though - I've never used it so don't happen to have it in my 340k other plugin downloads; I'm sorry....
