    Hi Broobe,

    I've noticed that if i log in with an account which has subscriber role, the "My Articles" tab is not displayed on the profile page and all the plugin features don't work.

    The plugin works only if the role is Author or Admin.

    How can i make it available to all users?

    Hi Allen,

    Suscribers can't create posts. That's the reason because we added the validation. I mean, it was a bug in previous versions of social articles

    So, you have 2 options:

    1-Change the rol from suscriber to author (or editor)

    2-Add the capability "edit_posts" to suscribers. There are some plugins to do that. For example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-role-editor/

    Let me know if it solves your problem.

    Well i've changed the capabilities using the User Role Editor plugin and now it's working fine. I'm marking this as resolved. Thanks.

    Please, take a look at this article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

    You can set the capabilities you want to subscribers.

    About the review feature, you can choose the workflow type from setting page.
