How Do I Add EE Roles?

I am currently running Roles & Permissions Basic. My site has a few different roles:

  • Member
  • Editor
  • Contributor
  • Admin

Right now, I’ve renamed the “Event Manager” to “Member,” which gives this role the ability to edit and create events.

My trouble is that I’d like my other roles to be able to edit their own events too. I have all 3 capabilities checked in the permissions for Editor and Contributor, but only Member and Admin are able to edit events.

Is this capability available only in Roles & Permissions Pro?

Hi Ginger.

I am currently looking into this and will get back to you.

Hello Ginger,

On reviewing this, for what you need, Roles and Permissions Pro is the way to go. You can allocate the Event Manager capability to each role as needed, and then users can only edit their own events.

In Roles and Permissions basic, it is there to allow an extra role that you can provide to trusted users, allocating the capabilities to other roles such as Editor doesnt work.

Awesome. Thanks, Dean.

I’d kindly suggest that this info be on the product page, though. It was really difficult to tell what the differences between Basic and Pro were when I was looking through it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey again, Dean,

I’m now having some issues with event moderation. It seems that my Event Managers are able to create and edit events, but they are being automatically approved instead of marked as “pending.”

I have the moderation option set to “Yes” but am also not getting any notification that any events need approval.

Any ideas?

My Event Managers are also able to edit all events, not just their own. I think it is a permissions issue??

Whoops, just kidding. I found the problem.

It was a permissions issue. I had set the wrong role to “espresso_event_manager”.

Sorry! ๐Ÿ™‚
