Support » Plugin: Client Dash » Impossible to add Widgets at the editor menu

  • Hello,

    I would like to add the widgets menu at the Editor admin menu.
    So I added Appearance and deleted all submenus but widgets.

    Neither Appearance nor Widgets show up.

    Thanks for help.

    Hi there,

    You actually should not be able to add those items to an Editor, as they do not have proper capabilities. When I test it out, I do not see those items available for adding.

    Have you modified the Editor role at all? Perhaps added some capabilities?
    It this the default Editor role that comes with WordPress?

    Let me know and I’ll try to help figure this out. Thanks.

    Thanks for the answer.
    Yes, it’s the default editor role.

    You are certainly right, they don’t have capabilities.

    For the moment I did not modified the editor role.
    Do you think I should do with a plugin, “Members” for example ?

    Well, if you want an Editor to be able to properly edit themes or widgets, you will need to add the proper capabilities to the role. I believe just adding edit_theme_options would be enough.

    I am curious as to how you were able to add these menu items though, as that would be a bug. Just to verify, is this what you did?

    1. Open Customize Admin tool
    2. Select “Editor” from the list of roles at the bottom left of the page
    3. Click “Menus”
    4. Click “Add Items”
    5. Click “Appearance”

    Is this correct?
