[resolved] Must check "Edit Private Posts" for editors to see other (2 posts)

    I believe there's some confusion in your code around the "Edit Others Posts" and the "Edit Private Posts" capabilities. Even with "Edit Others Posts" checked, my editors were unable to see the full post list — going to "All Posts" showed them only the articles they had created, and they couldn't see "Edit this entry" on any post but ones they'd created.

    After some troubleshooting, I narrowed it down to the "Edit Private Posts" checkbox. If this is checked, editors seem to be able to see and edit all posts, both public and private. So something's wonky there.

    Hi spsmw,
    Welcome to the world of WordPress Capability Confusions :)
    AAM does not deal with capabilities. It just list them and assign to different Roles.
    Combination of different capabilities is handled by WordPress Core. And some combinations are really weird :)

    I received a lot of emails with combination problems but it is really hard work to implement correctly all possible set of combinations. That is why this idea is almost the last in my list.
