[Resolved] wordpress.com stats not displaying dashboard widget

  • Tom

    @jeffreeeeey

    Hi,

    I’m using the wordpress.com stats plugin (not jetpack) and I’m having some difficulty getting the dashboard widget to display for non-admins (specifically, Editors)…

    Usually I just do a search & replace in the stats.php file; looking for:

    manage_options

    and replace both instances with:

    moderate_comments

    However it doesn’t seem to be working now.

    I’m using the latest version of the plugin and also have the latest version of WordPress installed.

    I also have the capability plugin manager installed, and Editors have been given a user level of 8. This is the caps manager plugin I’m using:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/capsman/

    To be clear- editors can view the site stats page… it’s just the dashboard widget that’s not displaying.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Not sure if what I’ve done here is OK, but using capability manager, I enabled Editors this setting:

    manage_options

    The widget is now displaying on the dashboard for editors.

    note: I also reverted back to the original stats.php file (removed the changes I made as stated in the first post of this thread).
