Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » Capabilities list not showing in URE

  • Resolved duttoluca


    I registered a new custom post type, as usual, in functions.php:

    $args = array(
    	"label" => __( "Monumento", "TD" ),
    	"labels" => $labels,
    	"description" => "",
    	"public" => true,
    	"publicly_queryable" => true,
    	"show_ui" => true,
    	"delete_with_user" => false,
    	"show_in_rest" => true,
    	"rest_base" => "",
    	"rest_controller_class" => "WP_REST_Posts_Controller",
    	"has_archive" => false,
    	"show_in_menu" => true,
    	"show_in_nav_menus" => true,
    	"exclude_from_search" => false,
    	"capability_type" => "monumento",
    	"map_meta_cap" => true,
    	"hierarchical" => true,
    	"rewrite" => array( "slug" => "monumento", "with_front" => true ),
    	"query_var" => true,
    	"menu_position" => 49,
    	"menu_icon" => "dashicons-editor-customchar",
    	"supports" => array( "title", "editor", "revisions","page-attributes" ),
    register_post_type( "monumento", $args );

    But in the URE page I can’t find the capabilities: they’re not present in the general list, and the post type counts 0 capabilities (“Monumenti (0/0)”).

    If I check the capabilities for this post type in $globals


    I get the right capability list:

      object(stdClass)#11058 (15) {
        string(14) "edit_monumento"
        string(14) "read_monumento"
        string(16) "delete_monumento"
        string(15) "edit_monumentos"
        string(22) "edit_others_monumentos"
        string(18) "publish_monumentos"
        string(23) "read_private_monumentos"
        string(4) "read"
        string(17) "delete_monumentos"
        string(25) "delete_private_monumentos"
        string(27) "delete_published_monumentos"
        string(24) "delete_others_monumentos"
        string(23) "edit_private_monumentos"
        string(25) "edit_published_monumentos"
        string(15) "edit_monumentos"

    It seems like URE can’t list all the capabilities…
    The strange thing is I have a lot of older custom post type in my functions.php, and they all work as expected.

    Is there a maximum number of capabilities URE can list? Or am I doing anything wrong?

  • One more detail, maybe it helps: in another site, with URE version 4.52, the capabilities are correctly added / listed.
    In my main site, with URE version 4.52.1, capabilities from custom post type aren’t added anymore.

    Just tested your CPT registering code as a must-use plugin hooked to ‘admin_init’. It works as expected at my test site. Add ‘_monumentos’ capabilities to the ‘administrator’ role and shows them under “Custom post types->Monumentos” group.

    Do you have WP built-in ‘administrator’ role at your site? In case it was renamed you need to add a custom filter ‘ure_cpt_editor_roles’. It takes 1 parameter: array $roles with 1 element ‘administrator’ by default. Add other role(s) to which you wish URE automatically add user capabilities for editing custom post types, if role does not have such permissions.

    version 4.52.1 includes especially this update.

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    Yes, I have the “administrator” role in my site, I didn’t delete it…
    I’m in a multisite environment, can it be the problem?

    As you suggested, the ‘ure_cpt_editor_roles’ filter works as expected.

    function filter_ure_custom_roles_add( $roles ) {
        $roles = array("administrator", "tutto");
        return $roles;
    add_filter( 'ure_cpt_editor_roles', 'filter_ure_custom_roles_add' );

    Thank you.
