Hi, I would like the editor role to have access to some pages in Event Espresso.

As per this post here I added the following to my theme’s functions.php file.

<code>add_filter (&#039;FHEE_management_capability&#039;, &#039;my_custom_menu_management_capability&#039;);
function my_custom_menu_management_capability() {
    return &#039;edit_pages&#039;;
}

add_filter (&#039;FHEE_espresso_events_capability&#039;, &#039;my_custom_espresso_events_capability&#039;);
function my_custom_espresso_events_capability($capability){
    return &#039;edit_pages&#039;;
}

add_filter (&#039;FHEE_espresso_registrations_capability&#039;, &#039;my_custom_espresso_registrations_capability&#039;);
function my_custom_espresso_registrations_capability($capability){
    return &#039;edit_pages&#039;;
}</code>

So now the Events and Registrations pages show up in the backend admin menu for editors users. Great. But when I click on them, both menu links take me to the dashboard instead of their respective pages. How to fix this? I deactivated all plugins and the issue still persists.

Thank you!

Code doesn’t show very well. Let’s try again:

<pre class=”brush: php; gutter: true; first-line: 1; highlight: []; html-script: false”>add_filter ('FHEE_management_capability', 'my_custom_menu_management_capability');
function my_custom_menu_management_capability() {
return 'edit_pages';
}

add_filter ('FHEE_espresso_events_capability', 'my_custom_espresso_events_capability');
function my_custom_espresso_events_capability($capability){
return 'edit_pages';
}

add_filter ('FHEE_espresso_registrations_capability', 'my_custom_espresso_registrations_capability');
function my_custom_espresso_registrations_capability($capability){
return 'edit_pages';
}

Hi,

Sorry about the code brush, it’s not very good. Pastebin is a great alternative.

OK, well Josh’s code will indeed load the pages on the Editors admin dashboard. However the problem is that there is a function that checks capability (_check_user_access() in EE_Admin_Page_Loader.core.php) that is not filterable or pluggable and it loosk solely for manage_options.

This leaves you with two choices:

1) Edit the core file to look for edit_pages as well. Not really recommended as you will have to do it every time the plugin is updated.

2) Give the editors manage_options rights. Yes this does open up a lot of other menus, but what you could do is another function to remove those menus – https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/remove_menu_page

function remove_menus(){
  
  if(current_user_can( 'editor' ) ) {

  remove_menu_page( 'index.php' );                  //Dashboard
  remove_menu_page( 'edit.php' );                   //Posts
  remove_menu_page( 'upload.php' );                 //Media
  remove_menu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=page' );    //Pages
  remove_menu_page( 'edit-comments.php' );          //Comments
  remove_menu_page( 'themes.php' );                 //Appearance
  remove_menu_page( 'plugins.php' );                //Plugins
  remove_menu_page( 'users.php' );                  //Users
  remove_menu_page( 'tools.php' );                  //Tools
  remove_menu_page( 'options-general.php' );        //Settings

	}  
}
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'remove_menus' );

I’ll add a feature request for a filter to be added, as this would obviously be the better option.

Thanks, Dean that helps! I went with option 2. And since I am already using Adminimize (another wp plugin) I can just use that to hide menus for editors. The combination of Josh’s code and adding manage_options cap for editors is what worked.

Thanks again!
