    As in title, currently the functionality is limited to admins only. However my client needs to be able to add and manage locations. Dug through the code, found nothing yet. Role Manager/Members plugin does not hook in to it, so I suppose there’s some different userprivilege mechanism at work. Anyone care to shed some light on this? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,
    2.4 will relax these permissions. It is available now to premium subscribers but you’re welcome to hack it yourself. Look in /simplemap/classes/admin.php

    Find any function call to add_menu or add_submenu_page and change the values accordingly. You’re looking to change edit_plugins to something else.

    This should help: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities#Capabilities

    Wow, thanks for the prompt reply! I was able to instantly provide the client with only the required options, by changing the requirement to ‘edit_posts’. Thanks.

    This worked great! For those wanting it spelled out a bit more:
    1) Open /simplemap/classes/admin.php
    2) Starting on line 24 you’ll see “add_menu_page” and “add_submenu_page” lines that correspond to each item (i.e. add locations, edit locations.
    3) Change the instance of “edit_plugins” to “edit_posts”, save, and that will give the editor privileges to that item.

    Thanks again. Amazing plugin!

    (Feature Request: Lose the table tags with the search fields. It goes all out of whack when you add tags and categories.)
