Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » read post and read private post

  • Hello

    I have tested your plugin a few time but it didn’t work as it supposes to be I guess

    I have created a role,

    I want this user role, only read custom post type, and private posted under this custom post type

    but when I grant read post and private read post, I don’t see the custom post type when I log in with the user role that I assigned, I must grant Edit post, then it only shows up in the admin area

    that permission is only set for the admin area, please advise

    It’s not related to URE plugin. WordPress works with posts this way.
    ‘Posts’ menu is protected by ‘edit_posts’ user capability.

    There is no ‘read-only’ access to the posts at WP back-end.

    If user does not have ‘read’ capability, in general, he can not access wp-admin dashboard. Even unauthorized user can view/read public posts at front-end. There is no need in any capability for this.

    ‘read_private_posts’ allows to open private post for reading at front-end. Private posts are not included to posts listings for users without this capability.
