Support » Plugin: WriteShare Writing Community Platform » Cannot enter new details in fields

  • Resolved daveywood


    I am trying to run your plugin on the latest WordPress as of 18-04-2019 as a superadmin on a WP Multisite setup. I have set up the plugin to be network activated. It also has Buddypress on the site.

    I cannot enter in new terms into the various fields. I set up the Book field as you have shown in your tutorial, as well as the chapter field. I can set up the chapter field from the front end but the Book field can only be entered through the back end. Can you help?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I have set up another user in the Editor role and switched OFF the option for all users to be automatically set as writing capable. So the new user then requested the admin set the user as write-capapble, which was don. When the user then went to their Writeshare profile, it still said the the user had to request for permission to write. I suspect that Writeshare has errors with the authentication of user roles.

    I do not have any issues with user role permissions on the sites I am using it on. I suspect it is a plugin conflict. Please try disabling other plugins and testing.

    I realized what the problem was. I had not switched on the ‘allow user to register’ option in General Settings for WordPress, so no user would have been capable of submitting a chapter/article.

    My advice would be to integrate the registration and profile elements with Buddypress so you don’t have to faff around with all these complexities. Why have an extra Profile page in addition to the Buddypress profile??!! Maybe setup a Writeshare tab in Buddypress, so all users can request permission to use writeshare from the website Admin.

    I have tried the Writeshare plugin on 4 separate installs of Mulitsite WordPress. Only in 1 can the fields allow edits (rather than choose from a predefined list only), and I don’t know what the difference is between the sites to cause this problem. I suspect Writeshare, having fudged its way into the Profile conundrum, doesn’t play nice with Multisite, thus having authentication for edits all screwed up. Why not let Buddypress handle all the profile and authentication tasks?
