Editing capabilities of Administrator

  • Hiya

    I have a multisite set up where I am the SUPER Administrator and I would like to manage the roles and capabilities of the Administrators but when I go to the Settings, I’m only able to manage the roles for:

    • Author
    • Contributor
    • Editor
    • Subscriber

    Is it possible to manage the capabilities for Administrators?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Yes, it’s possible via additional configuration. Please read FAQ section at this page:

    User Role Editor WordPress plugin – Change roles easily

    Excellent thanks Vladimir.
    I’ll give that a go.

    On another question, is there a capability I can add or disable which will restrict access to User Role Editor to only the Super Administrator for the multisite?

    Essentially, I do not want Administrators to be able to modify or edit the User Role Editor at all.

    Thanks :0

    At multi-site environment single site administrators doesn’t see User Role Editor by default. Please check.
    You need to add special constant into wp-config.php in order show URE for them.

    Thank you Vladimir
    I added
    define('URE_SHOW_ADMIN_ROLE', 1);

    to the wp-config.php file and it then it successfully showed the Administrator in the drop down, however I can’t seem to deselect any of the capabilities. Each time I click on it, it doesnt change the status (it looks like it is locked).

    How can I make them modifiable please?

    By the way, thank you for such an awesome plugin. I’m going to make a donation as soon as I work this out 🙂

    Yes, I made that initially to protect admin from losing his role by improper editing. As superadmin at multi-site is higher then simple admin, I permit him edit Administrator role starting from version 3.10. Version 3.10 is on the beta testing now and is available from this link:
    http://shinephp.com/user-role-editor-version-3-10/
    Give it a try and help to test it.

    Thanks Vladimir

    That seems to work now, but I’ve noticed a few odd things happening. Where would you like me to report any bugs/issues?

    Thanks 🙂

    You may use comment form at post about URE 3.10 or mail me directly to vladimir [at] shinephp.com
    Thank you.

    Vladimir, You are very wise about how Users work! We do occasionally get a website owner who has to click on everything, which results in some interesting side effects.

    So, if I understand this correctly the Administrator Role will never show up for editing in the Roles plugin. Is that correct? The reason I ask is that for one site Administrators can no longer manage categories. Is that a glitch?

    Yes, Administrator role is hidden by default. But it’s possible to see it, and add missing capabilities to it (only add), if you insert special constant into wp-config.php:

    define('URE_SHOW_ADMIN_ROLE', 1);
