User Role Editor
Role not working for Contributor (2 posts)

    Hi, I updated the plugin recently and now when I remove the EDit_others_posts capability, the Contributor cannot access the dashboard.

    I have reset, tried again, but it needs the "EDit_others_posts" for them to access the wp-admin interface.

    1) Is there any way of rolling back to previous version of plugin to see if this is a cause?

    2) Can you help to fix the current plugin?

    Any help would be appreciated. I don't use plugin it extensively but just want them to be able to edit only their own posts

    Thanks a lot

    Hi,
    I didn't tagged version 3.11.
    Version 3.10 could be downloaded here
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/user-role-editor.3.10.zip

    Role Contributor doesn't include 'edit_others_post' by default. This capability included to the Editor role only. Even Subscriber has access to the dashboard. Capability 'read' is the minimal permission to have such access.
