    Hi,

    Yes..Email Subscribers is accessible to Administrator only since ES 4.2.3.

    User Roles feature is part of a Email Subscribers Premium since then.

    Hope that helps!

    These are 2 problems. If I can solve at least the first one, it would allow us to get some work done.

    The Email Subscribers menu is completely missing from the dashboard for all except Admins.

    What role should be able to send? Editors used to be able to and now they cannot.

    User Roles tab is missing from Settings even for the Administrator role.

    I have begun digging through the code. It looks like all control over roles may have been intentionally removed from the free version. This despite the fact that it is listed as a feature of the free version on the front page “Ability to control user access (Roles and Capabilities).”

    Found the changelog. Rolled back.

    It seems like a very bad idea to force people to use the administrator role for sending an email. This seems inconsistent with good security practices.

    Hi,

    Prior to ES 4.2.3, ES was accessible to everyone. We got many feedback about it and people found it security breach where any user can access to ES and site owners even don’t know about it.

    So, after that we have restricted to Admin only. And if admin wants to give access to other roles, they can give it using ES Premium plugin.

    Prior to ES 4.2.3, ES was accessible to everyone.

    Not completely true. Prior to 4.0 it could be controlled. In 4.0, control was moved to the “ES Premium” in a “bait and switch” manner. Two mistakes. As they say, “two wrongs to do not make a right”.

    It should have been attached to a capability, not an Administrator. I recommend you rethink this very risky approach.
