Allowing editors to change options (3 posts)

    I'm using this plugin and it works well for administrators. I would like my editors to be able to access the options page and change the plugin options. I changed the various references to manage_options capability to edit_posts.

    Now, my editors can see the options page fine, but they can not save. They get

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    any ideas? Is there something else i need to do? is manage_options required?

    My problem seems to be a little weirder. It's working fine on my development site (which is running multisite).

    But, on my prod site (also running multisite), I need to be a network SuperAdmin to update the settings. Even a site Administrator does not work.

    I'm not sure what's going on here. My prod site used to run WPMU back in the day (pre WP 3.0).

    I would not in general recommend changing access level settings to anything less than manage_options.

    If you do then you may be running into problems with some of the Settings API core functions that may also require the manage_options capability.

    You will have to do your own research on this.
