Support » Fixing WordPress » Edit Roles and Capabilities

  • I would like to change the role of “Contributor” so they have the ability to upload images only (not the rights of an Author).

    I realize there is a plug-in for WordPress ( ) but I would like to find out where roles are set in the source and edit them there.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

  • I would also like to know how to modify the capabilities of a given role.
    The wp_usermeta table has two relevant columns – namely wp_user_level which is set to value of between 1 and 10 (10 being administrator role) and also wp_capabilities which I imagine controls the individual capabilities of the user, but I am not sure on how it does so. I’ll continue to investigate but any clarification or further info would be greatly appreciated.

    u can modify schema.php in wp-admin/includes. try
