Support » Plugin: Business Directory Plugin - Easy Listing Directories for WordPress » No role but admin can approve a claimed listing

  • Resolved karelles


    I have used this plugin on multiple sites requiring a directory, but this is the first time I’ve used it with the intent of having businesses claim their listings. I’ve got that working (I think), but now I need the person responsible to approve the claims. She is not an administrator, so I created a role for her with User Role Editor, didn’t turn off any capabilities in URE, and used Adminimize to select what admin menu functions would be turned off. Unfortunately even leaving all of the Directory menu items unchecked in Adminimize only allows me to view the Directory (add and edit listings but not approve a claimed listing) but not the Directory Admin. As a matter of fact, no other role other than admin, WP core or not, can see the Directory Admin menus. Is there any way to change that?

    Hi @karelles,

    Sorry that you ran into issues here!

    Right now, BD’s admin dashboard is only visible to the Administrator role. We haven’t added the capability to allow other roles to do listing claim management. That’s something we can consider for future development, but not something the plugin allows for today.

    The only way to fix this would be hacking the plugin right now to add it.
