TablePress
[resolved] Show Personal Tables Only (6 posts)

    I am trying to figure out how to show only the tables that the user created and not show them everyone else's tables. If I have 20 other people creating content, I only want them to see the tables that they have worked on and not be able to go in and edit anyone else's tables. Is that possible?

    Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    TablePress is equipped with the necessary internal requirements (functions using the Roles and Capabilities system), but unfortunately, there's no direct possibility to alter or adjust those on this level.
    While it is possible to give or strip access rights to user roles, it's not directly possible to give or strip those rights on a per-table basis. That should however be possible with some custom programming, that for example hooks into the "map_meta_cap" filter hook in WordPress. I do have some plans to make a user interface for that, but as my time is limited, I'm not working on that right now. It is however still planned for the future, maybe as a TablePress Extension.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thanks for you answer. I am not a php programmer or i would try it myself. So it is complicated to add a feature that would just query tables created by their user_id. Admins get to see all?

    Is there anyone you work with that you can recommend to do an extension for this. It just doesn't make sense to give access to other peoples work. So before I can give this to people to use, I need to make sure they only see their own content.

    Hi,

    well, it's not that complicated, but one has to be careful when implementing this. Therefore, one should be careful with it.

    I'm sure that there are many developers who can do this, but I don't know anyone in particular (I don't have experience in the freelancer business, sorry). Depending on how urgently you really need this, maybe we can work something out. If that would be an option, please send me an email (the address is in the main plugin file "tablepress.php"), and explain your requirements in detail.

    Regards,
    Tobias
