[resolved] Front end editor and user permissions (5 posts)

    Congratulations! The Frond End Editor plugin is phenomenal!

    I have one question/feature request:

    Currently, the front end editing functions only seem to be working for users with Admin permissions. I'd like to allow any user who has contributed a Post on my site to be able to edit their own posts in place from the front end. Is this currently possible? I don't seem to get the option at the moment.

    Thanks so much

    You need to give your users the 'edit_published_posts' capability:

    Great - thanks. I'll probably want to limit editing to a particular Custom Post Type, but I assume I can also do this with Roles and Capabilities.

    I am using this with a custom post type "profile" and would like a certain role to only be able to edit the profiles (not posts). At this point - if I want them to be able to edit the post type "profile" I have to give them the following capabilities: edit_published_posts and edit_others_posts. Since I only want them to deal with the custom post type and not posts - is there a way to not have to use the 'edit_published_posts' capability?

    Yes, you can change the capabilities when registering the "profile" post type. This Google search should help:
