  • your “question” post type does not have a proper capability type attached to it, so when i wanted to give the logged user the possibility of editing there questions, i couldn’t.

    please add this line to line 83 in the “question.php” file:
    'capability_type' => 'question',

    and then everybody who knows how to make use of roles and capabilities will be able to enhance the usage of this plugin with out hacking the code or over complicating the plugin. those who doesn’t know how to use it won’t even notice that.

    thanks.

    If you download the plugin again now (or however long it takes for the changes to go through) it should be there. I haven’t done much work with roles and capabilities so I wasn’t aware this could be done.

    It turns out the way I added the capability type broke the plugin for people who hadn’t set up their installation to use the new capability type.

    I have updated the plugin so that the capability type is now set in the config.php file and is defaulted to “post”. If you change the value in there it will change it for the plugin.

    the problem with the config.php file approach is that when i’ll upgrade it will run-over my configurations…

    I’ll include a way of doing this in the admin panel for the next update. However putting things in a config.php file is a good way to quickly impalement these changes and means there is only one file people need to replace when they upgrade.

    I know this is suboptimal but it enables me to make this change more quickly
