One issue I’m having with it – I am trying to configure permissions so that “editors” have the ability to edit all other “editors'” profiles (specifically change the “Name” field). I tried assigning to the role “editor” all permissions that had the word “user” in them:
That didn’t work. Then I looked at the Codex for User Levels. I noticed that at Level 5, a user can “see basic information on all Authors & Users; and, can edit, promote, and demote, users of lower Levels except User Level 0.” Editors on my site have level 6. So I granted capabilities to a user (“user A”) to be level 7 thinking that “user A” would then be able to edit the profile of all other editors. But that didn’t work either. “user A” can only edit his own profile.
How can I allow an editor to edit other editors’ profiles?
