Support » Plugin: Edit Flow » New Authors not showing up in Notifications

  • Resolved trevorturnbull


    Hi there,

    I have been having troubles getting new contributors to show up in the Edit Flow Notifications. The issue is as follows:

    When I create a new Contributor User on my WordPress site and then try to assign that person as the “author” of an article and check their name off in the Notifications, they do not show up.

    The only work around I have is to set that User as an “Administrator” so that they will show up in the “Author” list and “Notifications”. I then need to change their User account back to “Contributor” so they don’t have full Administrator access to the site.

    It seems to work as a “work around”, but not a great solution.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you modified the contributor role at all?

    Hey Daniel,

    Yes….we have a plugin installed called User Role Editor:

    We use it to allow our “Contributor” users the ability to upload media.

    You might try this:

    add_filter( 'ef_users_select_form_get_users_args', 'efx_get_users_args' );
    function efx_get_users_args( $args ) {
        unset( $args['who'] );
        return $args;

    What file and where do you put that code snippet?

    I have a similar problem.

    No where on the post editing page does it show the Notifications information nor does it show the Assign to User feature.

    I installed edit roles and I think that was the culprit.
    But even after I deleted both plugins and reinstalled the Edit Flow plugin, the problem still exists.

    I installed the Edit Flow plugin on another dev site and it works fine there. Identical setups for both sites.

    Tried the above code too, but nothing changed.
