- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- What capability do non-Editors need to have and manage a menu?
The role needs to have the ‘manage_personal_menu’ capability.
- How can you assign the ‘manage_personal_menu’ capability to a role?
There are many great plugins for assigning a capability to a role. However, you can manually add the role with the following lines of code:
global $wp_roles; $wp_roles->add_cap("editor", "manage_personal_menu", true);
The above line adds the capability to the Editor role. Replace ‘editor’ with whatever role you wish to assign the capability.
- Why can’t users with the ‘manage_personal_menu’ capability manage their bookmarks in the same way an administrator can?
The user must have the ‘edit_theme_options’ capability to be able to edit a navigational menu. Without that capability, he or she will not be able to use the menus interface and must use a different interface instead.
- Why are there menus labeled ‘favoritesBar’ followed by a number?
Each user gets a favorites bar menu followed by their User ID. Editing a favorites bar with a User ID not your own will effectively be editing a different user’s menu.
