Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » SEO Manager Role issue

  • Resolved Justin McGuire

    (@vijustin)



    I’ve created a user and given them the SEO Manager Role. This user can log in and is able to see the SEO Dashboard and has access to all the menus under “SEO”, but they are unable to save any changes. They receive the “Cheatin’ Uh?” message. Using the Members plugin I’ve verified that the SEO Manager role has the ‘wpseo_bulk_edit’, ‘ wpseo_edit_advanced_metadata’, and ‘wpseo_manage_options’ capabilities enabled.

    Hi,

    This is expected.If you are using another plugin such as Members it affects how the roles work. We have a request to provide a filter to prevent the behavior described. You can view it here: https://github.com/Yoast/wordpress-seo/pull/7937

    We suggest commenting on it (you may need account) so you may be kept aware of changes.

    I’ve removed the role managing plugin from the site as your post indicated it might be causing a conflict, but the user with the “SEO Manager” role is still unable to save any of the Dashboard Options pages.

    In fact I’ve tried disabling all plugins (except Yoast) and activating a core theme and that user still receives the “Cheatin’ uh? Sorry, you are not allowed to manage these options.” error page when trying to save the Yoast Dashboard options page.

    Should “SEO Mangaer” roles not be able to see the dashboard options pages at all is that the issue? (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_dashboard)

    Hi Justin,

    If a user has been assigned the role of SEO Manager they should be able to save Yoast SEO Settings. We apologize for the inconvenience and we thank you for bringing the issue to our attention. We’ve reported this to our team of developers. We suggest commenting on it (you may need account) so you may be kept aware of changes.
