TheThe Image Slider
[resolved] Role based edit permissions? (4 posts)

    Hiya

    I have TheThe Fly Image slider installed on my website which has multiple users. I wish to hide the settings from contributors and authors, but allow editors and admin roles to be able to amend the content within the slider.

    So far, I've had no luck in working out how this can be done - any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    I installed a capabilities plugin - user-role-editor - and then went through each and every setting until I found the right ones - turning one off, logging out, logging in as the editor role, checking, logging out again, logging back in and amending the capabilities until I had the right combination.

    Not a straightforward solution, I'm afraid - I'm surprised that there wasn't an easier method - it's taken me over an hour to try and sort!

    As it was, the setting in needed to keep checked was 'edit theme options'.

    yea that works for me too, I downloaded a plugin called members and then it opens up roles like role manager.

    I made all editors have edit_theme_options and then The editor accounts all started to have thethe Slideshow options.

    thanks
