4.18.3

  • 24.02.2015
  • Fixed PHP fatal error for roles reset operation.
  • Fixed current user capability checking before URE Options page open.
  • 3 missed phrases were added to the translations files. Thanks to Morteza
  • Hebrew translation updated. Thanks to atar4u
  • Persian translation updated. Thanks to Morteza

4.18.2

  • 06.02.2015
  • New option "Edit user capabilities" was added. If it is unchecked - capabilities section of selected user will be shown in the readonly mode. Administrator (except superadmin for multisite) can not assign capabilities to the user directly. He should make it using roles only.
  • More universal checking applied to the custom post type capabilities creation to exclude not existing property notices.
  • Multisite: URE's options page is prohibited by 'manage_network_users' capability instead of 'ure_manage_options' in case single site administrators does not have permission to use URE.
  • URE protects administrator user from editing by other users by default. If you wish to turn off such protection, you may add filter 'ure_supress_administrators_protection' and return 'true' from it.
  • Plugin installation to the WordPress multisite with large (thousands) subsites had a problem with script execution time. Fixed. URE does not try to update all subsites at once now. It does it for every subsite separately, only when you visit that subsite.
  • Fixed JavaScript bug with 'Reset Roles' for FireFox v.34.

4.18.1

  • 14.12.2014
  • As activation hook does not fire during bulk plugins update, automatic plugin version check and upgrade execution were added.

4.18

  • 14.12.2014
  • Own custom user capabilities, e.g. 'ure_edit_roles' are used to restrict access to User Role Editor functionality (read more).
  • If custom post type uses own custom user capabilities URE add them to the 'Custom Capabilities' section automatically.
  • Multisite: You may allow to the users without superadmin privileges to add/create site users without sending them email confirmation request.
  • Bug fix: when non-admin user updated other user profile, that user lost secondary roles.
  • Italian translation was added. Thanks to Giuseppe Velardo.

4.17.3

  • 23.11.2014
  • French and Turkish translation were updated. Thanks to Transifex translation team.

4.17.2

  • 21.10.2014
  • Notice: "Undefined property: Ure_Lib::$pro in .../class-user-role-editor.php on line 550" was fixed.
  • Settings help screen text was updated.
  • Russian translation was updated.
  • Hungarian translation was updated. Thanks to Németh Balázs.
  • French and Turkish translation were updated. Thanks to Transifex translation team.

4.17.1

  • 01.10.2014
  • Bug fix for the PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_plugin_active_for_network(). It may take place under multisite only, in case no one of the other active plugins load file with this function already before User Role Editor v. 4.17 tries to call it.

4.17

  • 01.10.2014
  • Multisite (update for cases when URE was not network activated): It is possible to use own settings for single site activated instances of User Role Editor. Earlier User Role Editor used the settings values from the main blog only located under "Network Admin - Settings". Some critical options were hidden from the "Multisite" tab for single site administrators and visible to the superadmin only. Single site admin should not have access to the options which purpose is to restrict him. Important! In case you decide to allow single site administrator activate/deactivate User Role Editor himself, setup this PHP constant at the wp-config.php file: define('URE_ENABLE_SIMPLE_ADMIN_FOR_MULTISITE', 1); Otherwise single site admin will not see User Role Editor in the plugins list after its activation. User Role Editor hides itself under multisite from all users except superadmin by default.
  • Help screen for the Settings page was updated.
  • Hungarian translation was added. Thanks to Németh Balázs.
  • Dutch translation was added. Thanks to Arjan Bosch.

4.16

  • 11.09.2014
  • "create_sites" user capability was added to the list of built-in WordPress user capabilities for WordPress multisite. It does not exist by default. But it is used to control "Add New" button at the "Sites" page under WordPress multisite network admin.
  • bug fix: WordPress database prefix value was not used in 2 SQL queries related to the "count users without role" module - updated.

4.15

  • 08.09.2014
  • Rename role button was added to the URE toolbar. It allows to change user role display name (role ID is always the same). Be careful and double think before rename some built-in WordPress role.

4.14.4

  • 08.08.2014
  • Missed "manage_sites" user capability was added to the list of built-in WordPress capabilities managed by User Role Editor.
  • Russian translation was updated.

4.14.3

  • 25.07.2014
  • Integer "1" as default capability value for new added empty role was excluded for the better compatibility with WordPress core. Boolean "true" is used instead as WordPress itself does.
  • Integration with Gravity Forms permissions system was enhanced for WordPress multisite.

4.14.2

  • 18.07.2014
  • The instance of main plugin class User_Role_Editor is available for other developers now via $GLOBALS['user_role_editor']
  • Compatibility issue with the theme "WD TechGoStore" is resolved. This theme loads its JS and CSS stuff for admin backend uncoditionally - for all pages. While the problem is caused just by CSS URE unloads all this theme JS and CSS for optimizaiton purpose for WP admin backend pages where conflict is possible.

4.14.1

  • 13.06.2014
  • MySQL query optimizing to reduce memory consumption. Thanks to SebastiaanO.

  • Korean translation was added. Thanks to Taek Yoon.
  • Pro version update notes:
  • Use new "Admin Menu" button to block selected admin menu items for role. You need to activate this module at the "Additional Modules". This feature is useful when some of submenu items are restricted by the same user capability, e.g. "Settings" submenu, but you wish allow to user work just with part of it. You may use "Admin Menu" dialog as the reference for your work with roles and capabilities as "Admin Menu" shows what user capability restrict access to what admin menu item.
  • Posts/Pages edit restriction feature does not prohibit to add new post/page now. Now it should be managed via 'create_posts' or 'create_pages' user capabilities.
  • If you use Posts/Pages edit restriction by author IDs, there is no need to add user ID to allow him edit his own posts or page. Current user is added to the allowed authors list automatically.
  • New tab "Additional Modules" was added to the User Role Editor options page. As per name all options related to additional modules were moved there.
