    If you have users on a “child” or “sub-site” and they have the standard WordPress “Administrator” role then they already have the “edit_users” capabilities as this comes with the “Administrator” role.

    if you want to add the “edit_users” capability to a different role, which currently doesn’t have that capability then you can use a plugin to do this. you can have a look at https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/ which does this.

    does that help, if not what are you trying to do ?

    Hi, that’s strange. My “sub-site” Administrator was not able to “edit_users”.

    ok re-reading the actual manual ..

    Roles and Capabilities


    it shows a network is slightly different to a single WP install on starting.

    it shows that only the Super Admin has “edit_users” capability so yes your local sub-site admins won’t have any of the following, without being given them manually …

    update_core
    update_plugins
    update_themes
    install_plugins
    install_themes
    delete_themes
    delete_plugins
    edit_plugins
    edit_themes
    edit_files
    edit_users
    add_users
    create_users
    delete_users
    unfiltered_html

    be careful if you start adding any of these as they will give quite a bit of access to Network functions.

    I think I forgot on my test site that the capabilities have been given manually already.

    Thanks for your reply. Anyway that I can activate the “edit_users” with the plugin manually? Any code that I can add in? Thanks.

    You can do it manually as I mentioned earlier, however, it’s nothing todo with this NSUR plugin. It will be standard WordPress with a different plugin.

    I’ll mark this as resolved now, try ‘user role editor’ or another plugin.
