  • Resolved wadol


    Hello. First off, this is an awesome plugin and I’m a huge fan of your work in general. So thank you.

    Here’s my situation… On the site I’m working on I have CMS Page Order setup for all of my CPT’s. The Administrator role has access to the “Page Order” screen for generic Pages as well as CPT’s. I have custom capabilities setup for each of my CPT’s, wondering if I can grant privileges based on a chosen custom capability rather than “edit_pages?”

    Maybe pass in an array of custom capabilities through a filter? Or would there be a more efficient way to accomplish this?

    To be honest I haven’t worked with custom capabilities before so I’m not sure how best to implement it.

    Can you fork this project on Github, make any necessary changes to the CMS Page Order plugin to make this doable, and then provide an example of how it works?

    Thanks for the response. Yeah custom capabilities are really interesting, they have opened my eyes to many possibilites that I never thought WP would be capable of. I’m hoping to use CMS Page Order for an intranet application I’m building for my day job at the WA State Dept. of Licensing.

    Yes, forking this on Github and trying my hand at making it work with custom capabilities sounds like a fun challenge.

    Thanks again for responding…

    Hey there, just wanted to leave a quick reply. I have accomplished getting CMS Page Order working with custom capabilities. I’m in the process of refactoring and will submit a merge request via Github for you to check out when I feel my code is ready for prime time. Thanks again for your expertise!

    Hey Stevie!

    I’d be greatly interested in your work on the plugin and custom capabilities. Do you have an approximate date on when you offer your code to Bill?
    Can I help in any way?

    I don’t have an approximate date at this point. I definitely “massaged” CMS Page Order to work for my custom capabilities situation. I have to go back and refactor my code so it’s a bit less hackish. However I’d be happy to share with you what I’ve done to at least get you on the right track. Just let me know…
