Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » Product Feed Pro plugin compatibility

    Hi,

    First of all we are making use of your plugin to our full satisfaction, so thank you for that!

    We have installed a new plugin called: Product Feed Pro, it seems the plugin is developed to be only access by Administrators, because I don’t see the Plugin displayed into the User Role Editor.

    Is there any possibility you can advise me on how to add certain plugins to be compatible to manage in the user role editor?

    Thank you!

    Best regards,

    Marco

    Hi Marco,

    Some plugins use WordPress built-in user capabilities like ‘manage_options’.
    Some plugin may directly check if user has ‘administrator’ role. It’s difficult to say more without access to plugin source code.

    In general, you may search through PHP source code for ‘add_menu_page’, ‘add_submenu_page’ function call occurrences and look what user capabilities plugin uses for its admin menu items. Also it’s useful to look what capabilities plugin checks when uses ‘current_user_can’ function.

    Hi Vladimir,

    Thank you for the detailed information, it indeed was using ‘manage_options’.

    I have managed to make the menu item visible now.

    Thanks again, great help!

    Best regards,

    Marco
