Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » Users Not In Page Author List

  • Resolved moose1



    Users assigned to a custom role are not showing up in the list of page authors. I need this to work because I’m using it to restrict specific users to specific pages for editing. I’ve seen suggestions to add the deprecated role_1 to the role, but that didn’t seem to work.

    How can I get a complete list of users in custom roles to show up in the list of authors.

    Thank you.

    Nevermind. I seemed to have fixed it somehow. By changing a user from their custom role to a standard WordPress role (in this case, Author), then changing them back to their custom role, they then appear in the author list.


    I have this problem as well. The suggested workaround by @moose1 didn’t work – rather I have to change the user’s role to a standard one, modify the author of the post, and then change the author’s role back to the custom one again. Not ideal.
