[resolved] Only Admin Functionality for Form (4 posts)

    I created a form using this plugin & found it quite easy. Now the only thing I am worried about is, all the user data is going to be uploaded by a single person. I would like to give them admin access to the form but not my entire word-press website. How do I do that?

    You must modify the plugin to do this. In the "participants-database.php" file look for a function called "plugin_menu". On line 311 the capability required to view the "Upload CSV" page is defined. Change this so the user role of the person doing the uploading can view the page.

    If you don't understand what is meant by "capability", you should read this article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

    Thank You so much. I am not able to make the changes in the php file due to some server restriction. Have made another restricted word-press account for the user who will manage the form.

    Will do the modifying bit once I sort the issue with server guy.

    Btw, thumbs up on the plugin. Simple & effective.

    If you can't get FTP access to the file, you can use the plugin editor in WordPress.
