    Ad Inserter protects its menu item ‘Settings->Ad Inserter’ with ‘manage_options’ user capability. It’s simple to grant access to this menu item with free version – just grant ‘manage_options’ capability to ‘editor’ role.
    But ‘editor’ role will get access to the site settings and many other critical option from other plugins. It’s possible to block access to unneeded admin menu items with URE Pro.
    But look at the Ad Inserter plugin more carefully. It allows to insert into ad blocks PHP code.

    * Insert images, HTML, CSS, Javascript or PHP code
    * Manual insertion: widgets, shortcodes, PHP function call
    * PHP code processing

    User who can execute at the site own PHP code can get full access to the site in a minute. There is no sense to restrict such user permissions in any manner. You have to decide if you trust to such user so powerful functions or you don’t.

    Thank you for your reply and kind notice about user role.

    I opend menu of Ad Inserter Setting 2.6.14,
    Then I chaned “Min.user role for ind.exceotions editting” to editor,
    and saved setting.

    However, Editors can not access to Ad Inserter.

    I turned off all other plugins, but still not possible to let editors access to Ad Inserter.


    I’m the author of Ad Inserter plugin.

    When you set Minimum user role for individual exceptions editing you allow only this – individual exceptions editing in post/page editor:

    You allow some other, less privileged users (i.e. lower user role) to be able to define/change block exceptions in post/page editor.

    Only administrators can access plugin settings for the reasons clearly described above by @shinephp.

    If you trust the user and would like to give him access to Ad Inserter settings, set him as administrator.
