Support » Plugin: WP Help » Permissions, who can see help

    On the plug in page I read:

    Q. Who can view the help documents?
    A. Anyone who can save posts. So by default, Authors, Editors, Administrators, and Contributors

    I went into the permissions and set me vendors as publish post but they still can’t see the help.

    Any thoughts on how to get them to be able to see the help on the add product page using woocommerce?

    Thank

    There is now a filter on the capability (‘edit_posts’ by default).

    'read_posts' => apply_filters( 'cws_wp_help_view_documents_cap', 'edit_posts' ),

    Assigning them the edit_posts cap should work, but you could also use the above hook to return a lesser cap or a meta cap.

    What about if we want editors to view, but not edit, help docs. I want to make it where only admins can edit.

    I would like that too. It’s VERY strange that “Editor” has right to both “Manage” and “Add New” documents.

    Please make a fix or an optinal setting for this for admins to handle
