Support » Plugin: Co-Authors Plus » Allow subscribers as authors

    Using wp_dropdown_users_args, it’s possible to set subscribers as an author. Co Authors Plus breaks this functionality, as that filters possible authors based on them having the capability ‘edit_posts’.

    I’ve currently commented those lines (at the moment: 1259 and 1260 in co-authors-plus.php) to disable that check, as I don’t want to set the edit_posts-capability to the users I would like to set as an author (for a different post type, with a different set of capabilities).

    Of course, changing plugin files directly is bad practice, so I’m looking for a better way. Ideally, I feel Co Authors Plus should respect that wp_dropdown_users_args-filter referenced before, but I don’t know whether that’s fully possible.
