I'm using Custom Post Type UI to create content post types (an FAQ), Advanced Custom Fields to define field types for the custom post types, and Role Scoper to manage access to creating FAQs and viewing FAQs. All three plugins appear to work (on LAMP, PHP5).
However, when I login with a test account set to permissions WP-Author, the custom fields do not appear. When I deactivate Role Scoper and login with the same account, the custom fields do appear. While I can't find it today, yesterday I came across one or two posts on the internets that said to set the WP-Author role as FAQ Author and WP-Editor role as FAQ Editor. That did not fix the issue. I'd appreciate help debugging.
First, here are the assigned permissions for my author test account, what appears on the login's profile page:
Assigned WordPress Role: Author
(contains Link Reader, Post Reader, Post Contributor, Post Author, Page Reader, FAQ Reader, Document Reader)
Additional General Roles: Category Assigner, Document Contributor, FAQ Author, Post Tag Assigner, Private Document Reader
(contains Document Reader, FAQ Reader, FAQ Contributor)
Second, here's the output from Roles > General in Role Scoper for my FAQ custom post type:
Private FAQ Reader
FAQ Author Groups: [WP author]
FAQ Editor Groups: [WP administrator], [WP editor]
Category Assigner Groups: [WP author], [WP editor]
Post Tag Manager
Post Tag Assigner Groups: [WP author], [WP editor]
With Role Scoper on, what this author login does see on the Add/Edit an FAQ page is the Title field and the WYSIWYG textarea (or a version of it).
Finally, in searching yesterday, one possible solution had to do with timing for each of these plugins, when they were fired off. However, I can't find the URL and I have no idea how to make that happen. If you think that's the issue, could you also explain how to adjust what WordPress processes first, second, third.
BTW Role Scoper works great filtering content based on categories and roles. The only issue I'm having is this one which appears to be caused by Role Scoper (because the custom fields appear fine when Role Scoper is deactivated).
Any ideas what settings I should check? Thank you!
