Support » Plugin: Client Dash » Plugin Missing

  • Hello,

    Great plugin first of all! It’s worked perfectly until I realised a plugin is not available to add to the dashboard (for editor – it works for administrator)

    On my normal admin account, It’s called Membership 2 in the WP dashboard, but for some reason I am unable to add it to the ‘editor’ level.

    I am adding it to editor because I want to remain admin and give someone access as editor who can only see what they need to see…

    But if its possible to set a WP dashboard for a USERNAME, then I can create that user as an administrator and remove everything they don’t need from there.

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Client Dash only allows you to customize what a user can already view. If an Editor cannot access the “Membership 2” page, then Client Dash will not allow you to add it. You will need to use a role customizing plugin in order to either create a new role or edit an existing role to give the role proper capabilities.

    I recommend a plugin like User Role Editor.

    Thanks for the prompt reply! I’ll check that plugin out.

    One other question, if I were to make this person an admin, and use Client Dash to setup what admin can see, how can I then access the plugins from the dashboard for the MAIN admin user?

    There is currently no way to change the admin for a specific user.

    I would advise downloading the plugin I mentioned, duplicating the Administrator role, removing any unnecessary capabilities, and then giving your user that new, custom Administrator role.

    Sorry I’m a bit lost here. If I remove capabilities for administrators, will that not limit my (the power user) capabilities as well??

    No problem!

    What I suggest is making a copy of the Administrator role and giving it a different name. Maybe something like “Site Manager” or “Sub Administrator”, or whatever you like.

    Then take the copied role and remove any capabilities you do not want them to have.

    Does that make sense? It should help you do what you want.

    let me know!
