Can't see regions / manage regional managers Permissions Pro

I have the permissions Pro 2.02 Beta and Permissions 1.5 and I can’t seem to see the locale/region menu, they don’t appear in the event espresso menu like they do in the screenshot.

Now I might of fucked it up because I enabled the pro plugin first without enabling the basic one, I didn’t realized they were additive.

As a sidenote, on this page: the link to the documentation points to : and since its https: the redirect you have setup doesn’t redirect to

I also didn’t realize they were additive — took me a couple of hours of trouble-shooting to figure it out.

However, my locales menu disappeared today while I was logged in as an admin (not an Espresso admin, but a WP admin). I later went and made sure that my WP administrators had “capabilities” turned on for “Espresso event admin” and “Espresso event manager” and “Espresso group admin” then I logged out and back in, and voila the menu appeared again. There is a lot of conditional code in EE that turns options and menus on or off based on the user’s capabilities, and I think that sometimes it’s a little buggy, so taking this extra step made the menu re-appear for me.

We’re working on updating the docs for the R&P add-ons. You do need to have the R&P basic add-on installed to use the R&P Pro. We’re also working out a few bugs with R&P Pro, we really need to label that add-on as a beta as it hasn’t been tested across a variety of installations/use cases, and it’s pretty complex.

Someone is working on the https redirects issue right now.

Thanks for the advice Jim. I’ve tried that, sadly without any impact. I’ve looked in the code and I found espresso_permissions_user_groups() which I think is what generates the pages for the regions and such, but I can’t seem to find where it is called or referenced, nor can I find where the locale / regions menu item is created (neither in the pro or the basic version). Do version 1.5 of basic and 2.02 of Pro work well together? Should I be using different versions? From what I understand the VIP account gives access to BETA downloads, where would I find those to test with?

Hi sboisvert,

The Roles and Permissions Pro version is in beta. The locale / regions menu will only appear if both of the r&p add-ons are installed.

Sorry I wasn’t clear, That is what I meant, I have both of those installed and no other EE plugins installed (apart from the main one). And I still do not see the menu item. This is on a Networked version of 3.3.2 under the Main blog (ID 1) is a screenshot of the plugins being installed (the main Event Espresso Plugin is hidden by the drop down menu of event espresso)

I have these loaded up on a single site installation, so this might be different for multi-site (I can’t say for sure if this will work on a multi-site install), but the locales + regional managers menus should appear for the admin on installation. If not, make sure the admin has the edit_roles capability and check on all capabilities for the admin.

I’ve finally figured this out.
the problem is sorta end user error, (as it always is)
The reason I couldn’t find where the menu was generated is that its generated in the main plugin, hence why I couldn’t find it when I searched inside both permissions plugin for that add_submenu_page() command. But the bigger problem I had is that we had set use_venue_manager to false.
the code does this:
if ($org_options[‘use_venue_manager’] == ‘Y’ && function_exists(‘espresso_permissions_user_groups’)) {

Therefore having the venue manager set to false made it impossible for us to see these menu items. I guess we just didn’t clue in that venues were required for Regions, although it does in a way make sense logically. (althought we set it to false because we don’t want to manage “venues” per se, we just want to type in a random location every time as our events are always at different locations in the province [state], hence the answering false at the venue manager).

Hope this helps out the next person!

I just upgraded from Roles+Permissions Pro 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 (beta) and two menus went away. 1) “Locales/Regions” and 2) “Regional Managers” … not sure why. I replaced the add-on files with the old 2.0.2 version and the menus did not appear again. I then restored the dev server from a server image and the menus reappeared. (Guessing it has to do with data, but puzzled.)

Hi Jim, for us we realized that the menus were depending on “use venue manager” setting. this needs to be set to true for these menus to show up.
