    Hey,

    I’ve been trying to let my custom user roles have access to the new data export/erasure tools in WordPress 4.9.6.

    I’ve cloned both the admin and editor user roles and manually assigned the ‘erase_others_personal_data’ and ‘export_others_personal_data’ capabilities to them. No luck.

    Does anyone know how I can let other user roles access these privacy tools?

    Thanks in advance!

    WordPress has no way of doing this without writing a bit of custom code. I was thinking of building a small add-on plugin for it but wasn’t sure if enough people would need such a feature. I’ll look more into it today.

    Thanks Justin, was almost going crazy over this.

    I think that anyone who builds sites for others could benefit from being able to let their clients access these tools.

    If you do decide to make that plugin, many thanks 🙂

    That’s actually a good use case and not something I had thought of.

    Anyway, I’ve got a working copy of the plugin on my machine at the moment. I plan to push this out as an add-on tomorrow after I’ve tested it and got everything in order.

    I meant to get back to you a few days ago with a release of the add-on, but I hit a couple of snags in development. Then, I had some offline things that got in the way.

    Anyway, I just announced the first release of the add-on: https://themehybrid.com/weblog/members-privacy-caps

    @terribletankard – If you use the contact form on the site to get in touch with me, I’d be happy to email you a free copy of version 1.0 just for pushing me to build this.

    Thank you, that is very nice of you 🙂

    To anyone reading this in the future, the add-on @greenshady has made works perfectly. Thanks again Justin!
