Support » Plugin: Edit Flow » Users unable to see backend dashboard calendar

  • Resolved chandler pentecost


    I wanted to first thank you for making this wonderful plugin. Our school website has been using it since january to schedule assigned stories and it’s been wonderful.
    Our problem just appeared this monday, February 11. An editor who has been using editflow’s calendar before, could not find the calendar on the backend of wordpress under the dashboard tab. We made sure she hadn’t removed it by some means, and we even sent a link to the calendar and it told her that she had insufficient privileges. We had’nt changed her user role, she was an editor. We tried changing her role to administrator and this did not allow her to view the calendar either.
    However I myself can see it on my account as an administrator. Our admin user role has full access to everything.
    We have experienced this problem now with multiple random users of any role. We use capability manager with our website and we have made no changes prior to the issue first occurrence.
    I have tried turning on and off any plugins just to make sure there was nothing conflicting and I found that this made no difference. I even tried renewing the cache and different web browsers.
    We’d greatly appreciate some advise so we can continue using your wonderful plugin.

    I’m not familiar with the Capability Manager plugin, but can you make sure the user has the ef_view_calendar capability?

    Alternatively, you can check against a different capability with this code snippet:

    add_filter( 'ef_view_calendar_cap', 'efx_view_calendar_cap' );
    function efx_view_calendar_cap() {
        return 'edit_posts';

    I feel silly for asking this, but which php file do I need to use this code with?
    (sorry for long time to respond)

    You’ll want to drop that in your theme’s functions.php file.
