Support » Plugin: Page Whitelists » Whitelist-the page-limited user can still edit Posts, media, banners, features!!

  • I created a user (MBAeditor) and assigned them the editor role (because anything less and they could not see any “pages”)

    Created and added them to the whitelist group (MBAhandbooks)
    In the whitelist I Checked the boxes for 2 pages they can edit

    MBAeditor Logs in:
    They can edit everything!

    What should I do that to restrict them to only editing those two pages. and not have any access to any posts, features, banners (or media preferably)

    what did I do wrong!?

  • One more thing… they ARE limited in the pages panel to those two pages but everything else is wide open.

    sorry, the plugin only manages access to pages – everything else stays as accessible as the role the user is assigned permits. If you need to manage posts/media, you will need to edit the native WordPress capabilities of the user – the easiest way is to use a capability editor plugin of some sort. I have good experience with the User Role Editor, but there is a lot of options, so pick your favorite.

    You will need to remove the capabilities that allow the user to edit posts and/or media ( Most plugins will allow you to do it on per-user basis, but you can also do it for the entire Editor role (or maybe create a new role altogether, depends on the plugin you’ll be using).

    Page Whitelists really only exists to mimic a specific functionality of Role Scoper that can’t be done by editing native WordPress roles/capabilities – which also means that sometimes you might need to use both to get precisely the result you want.

    I hope this helps, and good luck!
