Support » Plugin: Live Edit » Enable modification per post_type and user capabilities

  • Hello,

    This is a great plugin but there are some times when we have a role without the capability “edit_posts” but this role will have another capability like “edit_foobar”… leaving “edit_posts” to that role will be undesirable.

    So I think that this would be a nice extra feature if you can add it to the plugin…

    I did some modification and this seems to works :
    live-edit-v4.php
    http://pastebin.com/R1SNTtsQ

    The lines that I edited where 131
    $slug = add_options_page(__("Live Edit Panel",'live-edit'), __("Live Edit Panel",'live-edit'), "read", 'live-edit-panel', array($this, 'panel_view'));
    instead:
    $slug = add_options_page(__("Live Edit Panel",'live-edit'), __("Live Edit Panel",'live-edit'), "edit_posts", 'live-edit-panel', array($this, 'panel_view'));

    And finally I’m testing the capabilities on the function panel_view.
    So I added on line 368 the next code :

    $post_id = $options['post_id'];
    		$post_type = get_post_type($post_id);
    		$post_type_details 	= get_post_type_object( $post_type );
    		$post_type_cap 		= reset($post_type_details->capability_type);
    		if( !current_user_can( "edit_".$post_type_cap, $post_id ) )
    		{
    			wp_die( __("You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.") );
    		}

    So whit this method the user and/or role can edit only what he can edit (no more not less)
