We are using your plugin to allow artists (via a custom post type) to manage the images that are attached to their post. This works really well (thank you!) except that we have noticed one thing….
We had an artist who could not see any of their uploaded images in their gallery metabox when editing their post through the WP dashboard. We could see it when logging in as administrators though. At first, I thought this was because the author field for their media entries was left as blank, so I went through the media library and added the author to each of his images. However, I then looked at the plugin code and saw that it should display all images that are attached to the post (regardless of author) anyway. So I’m wondering if the problem is elsewhere… One line of thought I have is that the user role capability for the artist was somehow set so that ‘Upload Files’ was not a checked capability. To your knowledge, if the user role did not have this capability, would that stop the images from displaying in the gallery metabox?
Thanks in advance.
