    Hi,

    Thanks for the great plugin, but I am facing 1 issue.
    How should I restrict Authors and Contributors from creating new polls.

    I allow them to write on my blog but I don’t want them to create polls or edit them, infact the YopPolls option should not be visible to them.

    Is there a way to do it.

    Regards
    Nitin

    Hi,

    I am using the latest version 4.9.3, I checked the contributor does not have the rights but yes the author can create new polls.
    Is there a way to disable it.

    Also if I don’t want the YOP Poll button on the Add New Post, is there a way to do it (since a contributor can add the YOP Poll shortcode there).

    I have to admit that YOP Poll is the best Poll plugin that I have installed.

    Regards

    Hey Nitin,

    Edit yop-poll/inc/admin.php and in manage_pages function, after this line

    global $page, $action; add

    if(is_admin()){

    and after

    default :
         $this->view_all_polls();<code>add</code>}

    to close the accolade.

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Best wishes,

    Dear YOP Team,

    I’ve just downloaded YOP poll version 5.3.
    I’m trying to disable YOP poll menu for all other users(contributors,authors, except for admin).
    How can i achieve this?
    I’ve looked into yop-poll/inc/admin.php, but couldnt figure out a way. I’ve checked current_user_can function, but don’t know what need to be changed there.

    Can you please help?

    Many thanks.
    Jerry

    Hello

    You will need to edit admin.php under inc folder.

    After $pollAdminObj = YOP_POLL_Poll_Admin::get_instance();

    add the line below

    if(current_user_can('manage_options'))

    Please note that updating the plugin to a newer version will overwrite these changes.

    Best

    Thanks so much YOP Team. Worked like a treat!

    Thumb Up for the great plugin!
