Support » Plugin: PressPermit » Users are no longer are able to see posts in the backend

  • Hi there!

    We’re experiencing some issues where users with custom permission group memberships no longer are able to see posts in the backend. Everything has worked great for several years, so I’m a bit puzzled here 🙂

    Our setup is this:

    1) A group called “Glostrup” has been created in “Permission Groups”.

    2) A supplemental role has been added for the group. The post type is “Kat” (a CPT) and the role assigned is “Author”.

    3) An exception has also been added for the group. The post type is “Kat”, the post operation is “Assign Term”, the adjustment is “Only these:”, the qualification is “Afdelinger” (which is a category group for the post type “Kat”). Please see the screenshot.

    4) Some regular WordPress-users with the standard role “Contributor” has been added to the group.

    Why can the users not view posts in “Kat” anymore?

    Thanks in advance.

    With that configuration, the users should be able to view Kat posts which they authored. Do such posts exist? If you have them create a new Kat post, can they later access it for additional editing? If you change their supplemental role to Kat Editor, can they edit all Kat posts?

    Thank you for your swift reply, Kevin.

    Yes, there’s a lot of posts which they’ve previously authored. But when the users are logged in and click on “Posts” or “Kat”, nothing happens – it seems like the users are permitted from seeing the posts.

    I’ve tried to set their supplemental role to “Kat Editor”, but it doesn’t help. The problem only resolves if I change their roles to “Kat Administrator” – but when they’re set to “Kat Administrator”, they see (and can edit) all posts, so that’s not unfortunately an option.

    In your custom post type definition, try leaving the capability property set to defaults. When your configure Press Permit to filter that post type, it automatically applies type-specific capability requirements (and then satisfies them based on roles and exceptions).

    If that doesn’t resolve it, try temporarily deactivating other plugins to look for conflicts. Maybe a recently updated or added plugin (or even theme code) is limiting editing based on a simple WP role check.

    Finally, it’s still unresolved, let me know whether your WP Author and Editor roles are modified from defaults (and how).

    Hmm, this seems to be a bit over my head. I’d like to check the capability property for my custom post type, but since I’ve used the CTP UI plugin, I’m not quite sure where to look: null


    Hi Kevin,

    Have you had a chance to look further into this?

    Based on those screenshots, the capability type is already set to default (“post”). So please let me know if temporarily deactivating other plugins affects your back-end post visibility.
