Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » [ WP.3.0 RC2 ] Problem creating a custom role for a custom post type
6 years, 9 months ago
I’m stuck in a problem, and this is it:
– I’ve created a custom post type, ‘aziende’, with the capability_type ‘azienda’ .
– I’ve also created a new user role called ‘Azienda’, and I want it to work exactly like default role ‘Author’ works for default type ‘post’ ( ‘Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts’ )
Using the nice ‘Members’ plugin written by Justin Tadlock to manage capabilities, I’ve added the following capabilities
Then I checked the following capabilities for ‘Aziende’ role
That are the same capabilities that author role has for post type.
Now the problem: using an ‘Azienda’ role user, I am not allowed to edit and publish azienda post type, note that I can see the ‘publish’ button in the ‘add new azienda’ form.
Does anybody have a clue?
Did you ever figured this out? I’m in exactly the same position now. Hard to find any documentation too.

I discovered if you check the edit_posts option the custom post types appear, but then the custom post types appear also just by selecting edit_posts even if you don’t have the edit_posttype selected.
My guess is this plugin just wasn’t designed to work with custom post types, which sucks.
