I have found a bug with this plugin.
- When you tick the box to hide the “Media” menu for Editors within the plugin settings, this has the effect of disabling an Editor’s ability to upload media, even if they still have access to the posts and pages menu.
- What’s more is that the Editor’s ability to upload files is STILL disabled, even when the White Label CMS plugin is set to Deactivated, if it was deactivated with the “hide Media menu” option ticked.
I was able to verify this bug across two separate clean installations, with no other plugins active, using the TwentyEleven basic theme.
Clicking an option called “Hide Media Menu” should not take away Editor’s abilities to upload media. This has the effect of preventing them from being able to make proper posts/pages. If they still have access to the Posts and Pages menu’s, features within those areas should work.
It seems to me that in order to hide the menu, you’ve taken away the
upload_filescapability itself from Editor’s (which inherently takes the menu with it).
If that’s how you want it to work – fine – but the label on your tick box should then read something like this: “Disable Editor’s ability to upload files and hide the Media Menu“
Also, the second part of the bug indicates that parts of your plugin are still active even when it is set to deactivated. This is most certainly a bug.
I’d be grateful if this could be fixed.
