Support » Plugin: WordPress Access Areas » Access default per content type

  • Resolved Handoko


    I’m using this plugin in one of my ‘real’ website. But I don’t know how to do it:
    – I’ve created a new custom content type “Product” using Pods plugin.
    – I created an access area “Temporary”
    – I want the all newly created Products always only can read and can edit by users that who can access “Temporary” area.

    How to do it?

    Hi Handoko,
    I didn’t build in a feature like ‘set access defaults for post type’, and I do not plan to do this in the near future.
    You might like write a tiny plugin or mu-plugin, where you can set the defaults “by hand”. It could look like this:

    function my_insert_post_data( $data , $postarr ) {
        extract( $data );
        if ( ! isset( $ID ) && $post_status == 'auto-draft' && $post_type == 'post' ) {
            // replace these with a wp-rolename, a capability or an access area of your choice
            $data['post_view_cap'] = 'my-access-area';
            $data['post_edit_cap'] = 'my-other-access-area';
            $data['post_comment_cap'] = 'my-third-access-area';
        return $data;
    add_filter( 'wp_insert_post_data' , 'my_insert_post_data' , 20 , 2 );

    You will need the access-areas corresponding capability.
    Just added a column in the Access-Areas table view, where you can copy-paste them.



    Thank you for your help. But I’m not good in PHP. For now, I will set the new posts private manually. If someday you have time and want to add new feature to the plugin, please consider it. I’m marking this topic as resolved.
