Support » Plugin: Connections Business Directory » [Plugin: Connections] Roles & Capabilities Issue

  • Resolved Amber


    I just updated to the latest release of Connections, and under Connections I changed some of the Capabilities assigned to the subscriber role.

    I allowed for “add entry moderated” and then to “edit entry” however, when I use a test subscriber account on my site, yes they can now add, but no matter what (whether their submission has been approved or not) that user is not able to edit their entry (also tried this with delete entry).

    Ideally I would want each individual user to be able to edit his/her own entries or delete them if they wanted. But it doesn’t appear this can be done? I read somewhere that Connections is not integrated with WordPress users correct? The ability to be able to edit information is a key feature since information such as phone numbers, address or website could change.

    Also, if you’re manually creating all these connection entries, the ability to assign that entry to a user would be great.

    Additionally, it would be handy if there was some kind of notification (perhaps using the new 3.3 toolbar) indicating when there is an entry waiting for modification, as I haven’t seen one while testing and it’s easy to miss checking for new entries.

    I replied to you email, just putting it here for the forum readers…

    You also need to assign the ” View List (Manage)” capability, otherwise the users will not be able to see the list in order to make an edit. Please keep in mind that any Subscriber will now be able to edit entries because entries are not linked to a specific user. That feature will come at a later date via an add-on module.
