Support » Plugin: Roles & Capabilities » Roles not working

  • Resolved tanu2529


    I have used these plugin and have added new roles named writer and also give him permission. Permission is working for that user but after it is not redirecting to dashboard. it is redirecting to the website home page. and redirecting is working for admin, editor and author.
    I have also update WordPress may be that’s the reason for it.It was working before updating.
    Please help me on it.

    @tanu2529 With the latest wordpress realease (5.4.1) if a role or user does not have the “read” capability it wont be able to access “Dashboard” or “Profile” page. I would need to check if also happens in previous wp versions.
    So i think if you add “read” capability to your custom “writer” role you wont have the access problem anymore.
    Keep in mind that “read” capability is the simplest capability in wordpress (“suscriber” role only have “read” capability by default for example), so it wont give your users access to extra admin features
