[resolved] Roles and Capabilities (5 posts)

    We're using this on a client website, which needs the "Author" role to have access to use the Custom Field Group Meta Boxes that are created by Types plugin - on the Custom Post Type add / edit screen.

    Currently, they're only available to the those roles that have "Manage Options" selected. We don't want authors to be able to alter the boxes, we just want them to be visible on the add / edit screen for the custom post type that we've set these groups to.

    Is there a way to assign access to these meta boxes for the "Author" role?

    Thanks for more info!

    This is a very good suggestion. We'll try to include it in a near future release.

    I wonder if this feature has been implemented

    Almost there. We're finishing up work on an addon plugin called 'Types Access'. This will let you fine-tune user access control to custom post types and taxonomy.

    We're going to release this in about a week. I'll announce it in our blog:

    This page talks about the new Types Access module:

    It's in QA now and will be ready to purchase in about a week. We haven't set pricing quite yet, but it's going to be pretty cheap (maybe too cheap).
