[Resolved] Want something better than dead end error message after contributor submits post

  • As an alternative to the error message, “You are not allowed to edit this post” that a contributor gets after pressing the “Submit for review” button, I would like to display a message like “Your post is awaiting approval” and offer a couple of links instead of the dead end that error message represents. Is there a good way to accomplish this?

  • After posting this puzzling question, it finally occurred to me go through the basic troubleshooting procedure of deactivating, then reactivating all plugins, one by one. When Role Scoper was deactivated, the error went away.

    Basically, Role Scoper works fine when you get the settings right. I am using it together with WC Members to make a members site. There is more detail here on how Role Scoper made it possible to give users special posting and viewing capabilities, and have an entry level of users with the Contributor role who have the same capabilities, but whose posts are moderated.

    The Role Scoper and WC Members plugins have a few important things in common. Their developers provide uncommonly thorough documentation, they release upgrades regularly and they offer excellent support through their forums.
