Support » Plugin: Amen » User/admin approve prayers

  • Hi,

    First of, thank you for a great plugin.

    I’m using your plugin to allow public visitors to post prayers. I have two problems.

    1. I have set up a user that is not an administrator. I want them to be able to approve all prayer requests. On the settings page I have added their email address to the follow section:

    Send Approval Notifications To
    (comma-separated list of emails • user accounts related to these emails will be allowed approval privilege)

    The users email address is receiving a notification that a new prayer has been posted, but they can’t access the prayer requests to approve the prayers. The only prayers they can change are ones they have posted.

    Have I misunderstood something, or is there a problem with the plugin or my install?

    2. Since I am using the plugin to allow public users to post prayers, is there a way to allow a public user to return and give feedback such as the prayer has been answered? I’m assuming this would need to work with cookies or ip address etc since they are are not registered users.

    I’m using the Genesis framework with the dynamic website builder child theme if that helps.

    Thanks for your help,

    Adrian, happy to see that the plugin is serving you well (somewhat). As to your concerns/questions …

    1. Non-Administrator Approval: i’ll have to check into this one. i thought that i extended privileges to non-administrators to manage requests. i’nm certain this can use a good rework. i think they should have permissions to approve requests, but i may have not yet extended management beyond that. i’m pretty busy with a few others projects, but will add that to the list of things to check.

    2. Yes, the plugin does write two cookies to a users browser. The first is a user identification cookie, so that that they can return and manage (post update to) any requests they had previously posted. This also also them to see requests they have favorited. The second cookie is a session cookie that lasts for 12 hours. This cookie allows them to return to requests and pray for them a second time, if they choose.

    Hope that helps a bit. i’ll let you know when i’m able to look into the first issue further.

    I need the same capability. I would like to rotate who approves requests among members of our church’s prayer team. But giving them all admin privs could lead to disaster.

    You comment about approval being there is true. But the email that is sent has the path to the admin page which they cannot access. I my case, it needs to point to I can change that in your code but updates will be tricky.
