• Hello Members,

    I created a role called “manager” and gave it the capability to upgrade users.
    But this user can make himself or anyone else an Administrator!
    I don’t want him to be an Administrator. I just want him to be able to upgrade to the roles I’ve set.

    Please help me solve this problem.

  • Roles in WordPress are not hierarchical. The system works by saying you can do something or your cannot do something (capabilities). Technically, an administrator is no “higher” than a subscriber, for example. They just have different sets of capabilities.

    With that said, there is an add-on for Members that creates a hierarchical roles system that does exactly what you want: https://wordpress.org/plugins/members-role-hierarchy/
