    I’m using the Easy Sign Up plugin successfully in a client website, but I can only see the options and sign up data when logged in as an administrator. I’d like the user with the role of editor to also be able to access ESU in the WordPress backend. How would I do this? I’m also using the ESU Data Extra premium plugin. Thanks you in advance for any advice.

    Hi Geert, This use case has surprisingly never come up before.
    It wouldn’t be too hard to code in a change to the permissions level.

    I don’t think I’d want to make this change to the current plugin without a bit of testing.

    Watch this thread I’ll add a link to a test branch that will allow the editor level access.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Adding editor level access could be done by creating a new capability specific to the ESU plugin. By default, this capability could be assigned only to administrators, but theme builders like me could then assign it to another role, like the editor role, through functions.php or otherwise. It might be useful to have several capabilities, like “view ESU data” and “change ESU settings”.

    There’s other solutions as well, like having a dropdown box in the admin for specifying the required role, but using a capability seems to make the most sense to me. Either way, good luck and I hope you find the time to include this soon.

    geertvanderheide I pushed out an update for ESU Data that addresses that request.

    Hi Greenweb. Thank you so much for addressing my request! I’ve installed the update and it works like a charm. My client will be very happy with this. Glad I’ve been able to support you by purchasing the Data Extra extention – it’s well worth it and I’ll definitely consider using your plugins again in the future.
