No permissions to add new post with a custom post type inside a menu.
I’ve been searching for a solution for the past 2 days and had no luck yet.. Also found this problem writen by other people, but no answers.
I want to group my custom post types into a menu in the back-end, and what it seems to be a simple taks…it’s not 🙁
I know you can create a menu with add_menu_page and then create a custom post type with show_in_menu to append to that menu. That works greate. The CPT is added to the menu and i can see the listing with no problem.
Now the problem is: if i am an administrator i can click “Add New Post” and it works great, but if i’m not (even when i give the menu and post type the right capabilities) it says i have no permission to see that page.
If i dont use “show_in_menu” it create a new menu in the backend with the link “Add New” and it works good. But once i add it to a menu, it says i have no permissions.
Please does someone tried this allready and can help me? It seems a simple “job” for wordpress but it’s frustrating 🙁
Here is my code:
Created the menu:
add_menu_page( 'Call of Duty 4', 'CoD4 Team', 'edit_kposts', 'cod4team');
Created the post type:
register_post_type( 'cod4_news', array( 'labels' => array( 'name' => 'News' , 'singular_name' => 'News', 'add_new' => 'New News', 'add_new_item' => 'New News' ), 'public' => true, 'has_archive' => true, 'show_ui' => true, 'show_in_menu' => 'cod4team', 'query_var' => true, 'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'cod4_news'), 'supports' => array('title','editor','author','comments'), 'capabilities' => array( 'edit_post' => 'edit_kpost', 'delete_post' => 'delete_kpost', 'read_post' => 'read_kpost', 'publish_posts' => 'publish_kpost', 'edit_posts' => 'edit_kposts', 'edit_others_posts' => 'edit_others_kposts', 'delete_posts' => 'delete_kposts', 'delete_others_posts' => 'delete_others_kposts', 'read_private_posts' => 'read_private_kposts') ) );
Create the Site Manager role:
add_role( 'site_manager', 'Site Manager', array( 'edit_kpost' => true, 'delete_kpost' => true, 'read_kpost' => true, 'publish_kpost' => true, 'edit_kposts' => true, 'edit_others_kposts' => true, 'delete_kposts' => true, 'delete_others_kposts' => true, 'read_private_kposts' => true, 'read' => true, 'upload_files' => true ));
So, using a user with the role “Site Manager” i cant access the new post page, but with the administrator i can.
I hope that i have explained the problem correctly and sorry for my english if not.
Thanks in advance
I’ve found this post for months ago that maybe explains better what the problem may be and it gives a solution but its moderated 🙁
