Ultimate Post Type Manager
[resolved] Ultimate Post Type Manager - WordPress 3.1 (33 posts)

    Since upgrading to WordPress 3.1 I cannot edit one of my custom post types - the only option that comes up in the admin post listing is the view option and the post title are not links.

    If I try to add a new post of this type I get the message: "You are not allowed to edit this post." (I am logged in as administrator)

    I have no problems with the other custom post types for the site - they are still editable. The only difference I can think of is that they do not have any custom fields - the non editable custom post type has about five.

    All was working perfectly until I upgraded to 3.1.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how this could be fixed?

    Many thanks
    Lynne

    Same here. It seems to be a sort of capability/roles problem...

    Same exact problem. I can create new and edit (non custom) posts but cannot create posts with custom fields. This is on a brand new installation of WordPress 3.1.

    I am sozzledboot but I had to re-register because this forum forgot my password but remembered my username.

    Anyway, the solution I found was to uninstall everything and go back to WordPress 3.0.5 obtainable from the Release Archive.

    I'm having the same problem. When I manually enter register_post_type in the functions.php I'm still unable to edit the entries after regaining the post type in the admin sidebar.

    Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Because I think it is a user privilege issue, I wouldn't touch a fix with a ten foot pole unless it came from a developer or a few dozen guinea pigs.

    As I see the problem, WordPress is demoting the admin to a guest or registered subscriber status.

    FYI, since I was trying out this plugin on a brand new WordPress site, I ended up scrapping it and using Magic Fields instead and Magic Fields worked great.

    Interesting. What is Magic Fields?

    Anyway, the problem here has to do with WordPress user privileges which is system-wide. I don't think a plug-in of any kind will help. The core code has to be fixed (maybe post.php?).

    Honestly the best way to integrate custom posts types in 3.1 is to register them in the functions.php without a plug-in, using register_post_type. If you learn its parameters it will be time well spent, affording you a ton of flexibility down the road. The documentation on this function is fairly detailed and Tadlock has a nice article on it as well.

    Best advice: trade the plug-in in for some good old-fashioned copy, paste, and tweak.

    Magic Fields is a plugin that lets you set up fields and make a GUI for it and then you can code the fields into your single.php template for display.

    Hello everyone,
    There isn't actually any problem with the plugin, You just need to tweak the plugin as per your use.
    For this problem all you need to do is Enable Map Meta Capabilities under Options to true.

    Will add as default in next version of the plugin.;)

    I'm not using a plugin. I'm getting "You are not allowed" this or "You are not allowed" that error messages on a virgin install of the WordPress core files.

    At another forum, there are people telling the same thing regardless of plugin used or functions being performed.

    It's a problem with WordPress 3.1, plugins notwithstanding.

    @Tuin: Have you created a Custom Post type or you are getting errors for Post..??
    Also are you using as administrator?

    I am the admin and the only user.

    I was getting the error message whenever I used the post and page editing windows as well as whenever I wanted to edit links, add categories, install plugins, change widgets, etc or any other function that required an admin command.

    There are others from other forums who are also reporting similar symptoms, including sitewide crashes, deleted files, missing categories, inability to log in, etc, and only since the upgrade to 3.1.

    Thanks XYDAC for this great plug, it really saves time!!

    Since 3.1, Custom post type was not visible in the menu so I changed "Show in menu" parameter to true and it works well now...

    I'm just trying to understand what does the "Map Meta Capabilities" change? I did not have any issues with roles on my side ?!?

    Hey. I found a weird oddity that I wanted to share.

    If I have 2 custom post types created with the plugin and I want them to be as close to the top as possible (I'd liek them to be 1 & 2 in the nav but it seems the highest it can go is below post). So I set Menu Position for both of them to "Below Posts".

    The problem is that every time I make a change to one or the other they switch position in the menu because they keep moving to "Below Posts". Ideally it would be great if the New Custom Post types created were also an option in the Menu Position Combobox. Or maybe set their order with a number. so they don't keep changing.

    Also, is there ANY way to get the custom posts types to the top of the list?

    Love the plugins...
    Thanks
