Support » Plugin: WP User Avatar | User Profile Picture » Blocks file upload by users

  • The plugin successfully allows you to change avatars. But it blocks users from downloading files to articles.

    I have created a form for adding posts (to the front end) using the “Advanced Custom Fields”. After activating the “WP User Avatar” plugin, the file upload function stopped working, writes: “Unfortunately, you are not allowed to attach files to this record.”

    I tried to add the code in function.php:

    add_action('admin_init', 'setup_author_role');
    function setup_author_role() {
      $role = get_role( 'author' );
      $role->add_cap('upload_files');
      $role->add_cap('edit_published_posts');
      $role->add_cap('edit_others_posts');
      $role->add_cap('publish_posts');
      }
    add_action('admin_init', 'setup_contributor_role');
    
    function setup_contributor_role() {
      $role = get_role( 'contributor' );
      $role->add_cap('upload_files');
      $role->add_cap('edit_published_posts');
      $role->add_cap('edit_others_posts');
      $role->add_cap('publish_posts');
      }  
    ?>

    did not help 🙁
