[Resolved] section editor file link bug?

  • I notice a possible bug. When the user is an Editor, they can add like “href=file://blahblah-local-file” but when a user is a section editor, the “file:” is removed so the link turns into “href=//blahblah-local-file”.

    What kind of permission does a section editor get? similar to editor?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I notice that below an editor does the same thing. If the section editor gives similar access to an Author, is there a way to give access similar to an Editor?

    The filtering of the “file://” protocol in links occurs for any role below Editor due to the lack of the unfiltered_html capability. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities for more info.

    By default the capability set for section editors is quite restrictive. This can be modified programmatically or through a role management plugin such as Members. See this Github Wiki page for more details.
