    Hi @123456jk

    Thanks for the review.

    You need the PublishPress Capabilities plugin. Please follow this guide:

    Hi

    Thank you for your reply. I have been reading this article of the link you have provided, and installed both plugins: PublishPress Capabilities and the PublishPress Permissions plugin.

    In the “Capabilities” plugin the “Hidden Role” checkbox is missing and the “Permissions” plugin” has no settings at all. I have avtivated it, but I have not found any settings for this plugin.

    Would you please give more details in order to get this working, thanks

    @123456jk Role hiding is now done on the Capabilities > Roles screen. Hover over a role name and click “Hide”

    As you noted, PublishPress Permissions also needs to be active.

    Note, though, this role hiding is only supported for custom roles. The current plugin versions will not hide the default WordPress roles (Subscriber, Contributor, Author, Editor).

    I have created a user role “Translator” as an example, went to Roles screen, hovered over translator user role, but “hide” is missing there”. When I hover over Translator user role, it only shows Capabilities and Delete. Am I doing something wrong here?

    @123456jk Are you sure PublishPress Permissions is still active (not just installed?)

    yes, the Publipress Permissions plugin is activated, but as I mentioned before, there are no settings available for this plugin. Just installed and activated.

    Could it be the WordPress version? I am using Version 4.7.19

    @123456jk You probably should have mentioned that earlier.

    You’re running a version that is practically from 2016.

    Our plugins (and most major plugins) only support very recent WordPress versions.

    @123456jk Currently, PublishPress Permissions will decline to run on WordPress versions older than 4.9.7.

    ok, will update to at least 4.9.7 and see what happens.

    Thanks for your help.
