[Plugin: Widget Entries] - Menu not showing for anyone less than Admin (3 posts)

    Hi there,
    I am using the Widget Entries Plugin which creates a menu entry called "widgets" (Custom Post Type).
    So far so good. But as soon as I login with a user who is not an admin user I don't see the menu entry.
    I have other Custom Post Types which I see without a problem.

    Thank you!

    Hi Anja,
    Widgets entries is supposed to change the appearance of your site, you can't display the widgets entries individually in your site and a user who can't edit themes and widgets are not supposed to create widget entries.

    But if you still want a regular user to create widget entries go to the backend and there:

    Plugins >> Editor >> Widget Entries (Select)

    And there you will see in line 17
    var $cap_required = 'edit_theme_options';

    replace 'edit_theme_options for 'edit_posts' and every author will be able to create widget entries.
