    Hi There

    Ive had report that my users are unable to add markers to my map, which explains why nobody has been adding markers.

    I can add the markers from the admin side without a problem.

    Any ideas?

    The Maps is held on: http://www.funkstylers.tv/world-map/

    Thanks

    Hi
    I have a new version of the Visitor Generated Markers add-on. Please email me at nick@wpgmaps.com and I will send you the latest version. This version should get rid of this bug.

    Kind regards
    Nick

    The original poster was asking for a specific User (Role) to be able to add to the markers--not for the general public or visitors, right?

    Hi dpeters911
    The original poster was looking for functionality to allow visitors to add markers to his existing map on the front end and not the back end.

    However, should anyone wish to allow your editors or subscribers to allow access to the plugin in the backend, please follow the following instructions:

    Open the basic plugin in an editor and search for "manage_options". Change it to the following depending on what user role you would like to be able to create, edit and add markers to maps:

    Editor: change all existing "manage_options" to "edit_pages"
    Author: change all existing "manage_otpions" to "publish_posts"
    Contributor: change all existing "manage_options" to "edit_posts"
    Subscriber: change all existing "manage_options" to "read"

    There should be a total of 3 "manage_options" to change.

    Kind regards
    Nick
