Unable to assign pages to users with a custom role (3 posts)

    Hello,

    We have discovered an issue where a user with a custom role cannot be assigned to be the author of an existing page. I have created a role where all capabilities are checked, created a new user with this role (and logged in as this user), then tried to reassign an existing page - no luck.

    We are trying to reassign using the author dropdown on both the quick edit and the Author box on the edit page.

    Is this a bug or is there something we need to do?

    Thanks,

    Samantha

    I'm seeing the same issue, but with posts.

    I encountered this too and had found a solution at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/user-level-field-not-updated?replies=8

    Add level_1 capability to the custom role

    Temporarily change the user to a different role and then change it back to the same custom role for it to take effect.
