Support » Plugin: Client Dash » only allow user to edit posts

    hello, I want to use this plugin so that a specific user role, let’s just call it “guest poster” will just see the posts tab, as well as a custom tab that links to a custom page (instructions). I want only for that use to edit/post their own articles that in draft.

    I want for that user to only see their own posts (live and draft), not any other user’s posts. Is all this possible?

    In this case, you will want to create the User using the Author User Role. The Author User Role only has access to Posts by default and they are also only able to Edit and Publish their own Posts. You can find information about the default WordPress User Roles here: https://wordpress.org/support/article/roles-and-capabilities/#summary-of-roles

    Then you could use Client Dash to remove any other Admin Menu Items aside from Posts and this custom Page. You may want to look at our Pro extension for the plugin so that you can add multiple custom Admin Pages: https://realbigplugins.com/plugins/client-dash-pro/

    Keep in mind that many plugins Use “post” as the “Capability Type” for their Custom Post Types. So the Author User would still technically have access to these items. Using Client Dash to hide those extra menu items will help prevent them from getting into things you do not want them to though.

    I’m going to mark this as “resolved” for now. Please let me know if I misinterpreted your question!
