Eazy Project Management

Description

Eazy Project Management is a WordPress plugin that creates a custom post type for projects with a custom taxonomy for clients. The plugin also creates a custom user role for clients. When a user is added with the role client, it adds the users display name to the taxonomy clients. You can then create a custom post type of project and use the taxonomy term client to keep the content of the project protected from users who aren\’t admin or logged in with the display name matching the taxonomy term.

Screenshots

  • Projects post type functions just like posts. Clients works like tags, except content is restricted to admin and those tagged to a project.
  • To have your client show up in the tag list, you need to create a user with the custom role of \'Client\'.
  • You can add a project just like you would a post. It probably uses your themes\' single.php template to display the content.
  • All projects.
  • Single Project being displayed to admin.
  • Single Project being displayed to logged in user with name matching selected client.
  • Single Project not being displayed to everyone else.

How can I customize the layout?

The plugin uses the default single.php and taxonomy.php or archive.php to display a single project and a client archive. Add single-ezproject.php to your theme for a single project. Add taxonomy-ezproject_clients.php to your theme for the client archive that shows all projects for a client.

How does this plugin work?

The plugin creates a custom post type called Projects with a taxonomy or Clients. You can add a client as a user, so that they are able to login to the website. When you create the users, they are added to the Clients taxonomy for the projects post type. You create a project just like a post, and select the clients you want to show the project to like you would a tag on a post. A PHP if/else statement checks for the user to be either admin or logged in with a user display name that matches the taxonomy terms selected to display the current project.

It's missing the most important part. There is no clear instruction on how to designate the project access to any particular user. It give a place to create a "client" but no way to designate which user(s) are associated with that client. therefore, no matter who is logged in, only the admin can see the project page despite it asking you to log in to see that page. "Select the clients you want to display the project for by checking the corresponding taxonomy term that matches the users name." What? Who can figure out what that means? There is no Taxonomy to select! I mean, i am a developer and i know what a taxonomy is but why make this so that you have to go associate a user taxonomy with the taxonomy for this when you can just provide a drop down or something? And why create a new role called "client"? I have s2member installed and have to use the current roles in order to make the rest of the site work. By adding a new user role for this plugin, it's like saying "I don't care what your site does, my plugin is now taking priority over everything you do". IT'S HORRIBLE! Terrible waste of time and can't even use it for anything. The whole thing is not even a project manager despite the title. It's just a page that only specific users are supposed to be able to see but even that doesn't work.
