EE Master Admin not "taking" for WP user

Hello,
We are finally ready to launch I hope, but I am having a tough time giving access to my colleagues to create / edit events. I am trying to give them the Espresso Master Admin rights. They have that role assigned in WordPress.

I am on the latest version of EE 4. I do have WooCommerce installed as well, and they happen to have Shop Manager role activated as well that does seem to work.

I did find this post:

and was wondering if this is the fix I needed?

Hi there,

The ‘Espresso Master Admin’ is a role created by the EE3 Roles & Permissions Add-on which is not compatible with EE4.

What functions are you looking to allow for these other users?

For example should they only have access to Event Espresso and not the rest of the admin?

Should they have the ability to view/edit all events/registration/transactions within EE?

If you can list your requirements for the roles we can help further with this.

I want the user to to be able to create and modify events, create / modify venues, basically be able to do all things for Event Espresso. I’m surprised that user role was there then as I do not have that plugin installed. I am only installing EE4 add-ons.

What do you suggest?

Hey there,

Did you have the EE3 Roles and Permissions add-on installed previously? If so, that is why that role is there. It was added to the database by that add-on.

Do you want users to be able to modify other users’ events?

I recommend using the User Role Editor plugin (free) to add/edit role capabilities.

You know what.. at one point we did have EE3, but then EE4 came out and what is what we have pretty much always developed on.

So is there no official role anymore for Event Espresso Administrators? Just have to add the capabilities to the users?

Yes, that explains it.

When EE3 Roles & Permissions is actived it adds the role to the database.

No, there is no Event Espresso role (which is really just a collection of capabilities). All of the features of EE are based on the users capabilities rather than the role and you can assign the capabilities needed to any user or any role you prefer.

For example you can set the ‘Author’ role to have all of the EE capabilities (they all begin with ‘ee_’) from within the User Role Editor plugin mentioned above so that all authors have full access to EE, or you can assign the capabilities to a specific user so only that user has access. Its depends on what you want to do and how much control you want a user (or group of users) to have as to which capabilities you assign.

We can help advise which capabilities you need to assigned for specific functions if you are unsure?
