Event Admin Capabilities

I have an office filled with people that have a variety of capabilities. If I assign any of them the capabilities of espresso_event_admin, espresso_event_manager and/or espresso_group_admin they can see everything they need to do but don’t have permission to edit any event.

One way I solved this was by making the people that need to be event admins Espresso Master Admins but with their particular role I can’t select them as an author after a page has been created for them.

So the other way to fix this is to give them an Author role but then they can’t edit espresso events because the capabilities won’t work.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

they can see everything they need to do but don’t have permission to edit any event.

That’s inaccurate. They should have access to edit their own events but not anyone else’s events. This is by design and is what the Roles and Permissions manager was intended to do.

One way I solved this was by making the people that need to be event admins Espresso Master Admins but with their particular role I can’t select them as an author after a page has been created for them.

Do you mean a WordPress page, so they can edit pages in the WordPress dashboard? This capability would need to be added to that role via another plugin, e.g. Members.

So the other way to fix this is to give them an Author role but then they can’t edit espresso events because the capabilities won’t work.

Right, WordPress roles cannot be used with the Event Espresso Roles & Permissions add-on. I would recommend getting another plugin like Members, linked above, to add additional capabilities to the espresso_master_admin role.

Ok Let me explain this a different way. I need event editors to be able to edit all events but not edit other’s wordpress pages. I am managing all capabilities using groups and everything would be working fine except I can’t select Event Master Admin as an autor for a wordpress page. I am getting around this by switching their role temporarily to author and then switching back to Event Master Admin.

Thanks for your reply.

As I said, you will need another plugin to add additional capabilities to the Event Master Admin role (or whatever role you’re using for your event managers), however, if you want your event managers to be able to edit all events, you shouldn’t be using R&P at all, since this is not what R&P is intended for, or you should make all your event managers Regional Managers (who should have access to control all events, regardless of who they belong to), but this is a role that only exists in the R&P Pro add-on.

Yes as I said I am managing all capabilities using the groups plugin from wordpress. I have assigned the Event Master Admin the permissions I need them to have in the roles area because I thought this was the best place for me to remove capabilities from that role.

If this is not the use for the roles plugin could you please explain to me what the roles plugin is for.

If I were to get R&P pro would I still run into the problem of not being able to choose Regional Managers as a wordpress page author?

Thanks

Sorry I didn’t mean groups from wordpress I meant groups for wordpress.

I have no idea how that plugin works so I can’t really help you there. The Members plugin by Justin Tadlock is what I have used in the past and am more familiar with. In that plugin, you are able to directly edit the capabilities of a user role and add and remove capabilities from that role. If you are using a different plugin, I don’t know what the limitations or features of that plugin may be so I can’t say definitively that you can do what you are trying to do. What I can say is with Members, you would be able to edit the Regional Manager role and add edit_posts and publish_posts capabilities to that role.
