I have recently installed EE. I am trying to understand the Role & Permissions. I have created the Event Master Admin as specified in the install documentation. However, the user assigned the role and permissions, does not have a menu item for Event Espresso. I must be missing some part of the roles & permissions that actually assigns the pages to the menu. Please help me understand what I have missed?

Hi Patrick,

What are you looking to accomplish with using the Roles and Permissions add-on?

Did you set the minimum page permissions as illustrated by this screenshot?

Question 1.
I have 123 users that have used a role called ‘Event Contributor’, part of the Timely All-in-one plug-in that I am replacing. I was hoping to modify this role for Event Espresso to deliver the event calendar update function only.
Question 2.
Permissions are set per your screen shot. I have followed the Roles and Permissions setup, I have given the minimum permissions you addressed in your question. I have added the ‘Event Master Administrator’ to this point. I changed the role of one user id to the Event Master Administrator, but when that user logs in, there is no menu item for Event Espresso.

Hi Patrick,

The roles and Permissions add-on isn’t compatible with custom roles that were created by other plugins. That may be why it’s not working as expected. It also may be that if the other event manager/roles plugins are still installed there’s a conflict happening.

Another thing you can try is to create a new user role and assign the role to Espresso Master Admin. That may help narrow down the issue.

I have deactivated the Timely All-in-one Calendar add-in. I created the Espresso Master Admin. I changed an existing Word Press user from the role of Event Contributor to Espresso Master Admin. I expected this to change to add Event Espresso to the user’s menu.
When I log in with the new user role, I have no menu selection for Event Espresso. Is there some way we can discuss this interactive?

Currently, only the role of WordPress Administrator has Event Espresso access.

AS a test, I reset all permissions to default & saved.
I changed all permissions from administrator to Event Admin & saved.
I logout as Administrator.
Logged in as Event Master Admin. There was no menu access to Event Espresso.
I logged out and logged in as Administrator. I reset permissions to default & saved.
I assigned the minimum permissions as per the earlier post.
This test tells me there is some setting other than permissions that I am missing. What controls adding the Event Espresso to the user role?

The Minimum Page Permissions settings control this. Do you have any other plugins active that modify that side menus?

Hi Patrick,

I’m not seeing a link. Are there any plugins like the Advanced Access Manager or the Members plugin currently active?

If so, these may be conflicting with Roles and Permissions add-on.

Sorry for the delay in responding.

I do have Advance Access Manager. I do not have a Members plugin

In that case the Advanced Access Manager plugin may be overriding the menu permissions for your new user role. Advanced Access Manager hasn’t been tested to determine whether it’s fully compatible with the Event Espresso roles and permissions add-on. While there may be some overlap in the functions of the two, you may be able to configure to the AAM plugin to allow your new event user role to have access to the Event Espresso menus.
