Non Administrators Unable to Upload Images (2 posts)

    Hi,
    This is a great plugin - but one issue is that we are running a membership website.
    We want non administrators to be able to upload their own images, but when logged in as a Contributor (for example), the Upload Profile Image link is simply not there as it is for Administrators.

    How can this be made available to non administrators?

    Many Thanks
    Simon

    Sorry Simon, the user's have to be role of "author" or greater to upload images. This is currently a limitation of WordPress, as its native uploader only allows authors or greater to upload images.

    You can probably try to use a role management plugin to allow contributors the ability to 'upload files', which may solve the problem. Get back to me if this does indeed work.
