Support » Plugin: Simple Membership » Problem with Admin Dashboard Access Permission

  • If advanced feature Admin Dashboard Access Permission is used with a role different from Administrator, it is not possible to save changes at WP-Membership / Settings page, an error appears:

    You need a higher level of permission.

    Sorry, you are not allowed to manage options for this site.

    The form for Settings uses options.php as action and that page requires manage_options as capability by default.

    Suggestion: Use the option_page_capability_{$option_page} filter, more here, to provide the correct capability from Admin Dashboard Access Permission.

    Hi, I carried out a test in my dev site using the latest version 4.0.0 and I cannot reproduce the issue you mention above.

    Also in version 4.0.0 a change was made to this settings as per the following note.

    Added help text to the “Admin Dashboard Access Permission” field to explain that it should not be used with the “Disable Access to WP Dashboard” option.

    Can you provide more information?

    Thank you
