Support » Plugin: Members - Membership & User Role Editor Plugin » Restrict content capability

  • Resolved calaiopee


    Hi, I am running a non-profit members site and I have groups with private content and private posts and pages administered by admins who have acceess to ONLY THEIR OWN private content.

    In oder to have private posts and pages I created custom post types assigned to the different admin roles. Works fine.

    With these custom post types I need the “restrict-content” metabox which is swichted on by granting the capability “restrict content” to an admin.

    However, when I grant the “restrict content” capability to one admin he/she has access to all other private post types. Not editing, but reading.

    I checked “Denied capabilities should always overrule granted capabilities.” and I denied read/edit/delete the others custom post types. But to no avail.Every admin can read every other admins pages and posts.

    How can that be?

    It looks like: a role that has the capability to “restrict content” for it’s own custom post type can not be restricted to an others custom post type.


    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi Calli,

    ​I apologize for the delay in response.

    Unfortunately, what you’d need is not provided by our plugin and requires custom development. Sorry about that.
