WP Ajax Edit Comments
[resolved] Mods lost abilities to edit users comments since 5.0.13.0 (5 posts)

    Hello,
    I had to revert to version 5.0.10.0

    The problem: My comment moderators lost ability to edit posts on versions 5.0.13.0 & current 5.0.20.0.

    I have a "comment moderators" role in my wordpress.
    All abilities are disabled except:
    - Read
    - Moderate Comments
    - Edit Comment
    - Mv Moderate Comments

    This works in previous versions, stopped working in 5.0.13.0
    Comment moderators can edit posts through the wordpress admin panel, but that is a hassle (reason to use this plugin).

    So I had to revert to previous version 5.0.10.0.
    Please test my mentioned settings (it's a problem with the plugin because as I've said, they can moderate and edit users comments through the panel but not through the plugin).

    Thanks.

    MTO,

    Thanks. Will check this out tomorrow. What are you using to create the special role?

    MTO,

    I just added a check for "moderate_comments" for editing capabilities. Hopefully that should cover it without introducing any new vulnerabilities and/or bugs.

    Let me know of any further issues.
