A user is allowed to “Add a Venue” but they are not allowed to “Edit” the venue they just added.

What permission is required to be turned on to allow this?

Thank you.

Hi Michael,

Are you using the Roles and Permissions addon to control access? What are your settings for this user in question?

Yes I’m using Roles and Permissions.

For this user I have the following checked off:
edit_post, edit_posts, espresso_event_admin, espresso_event_manager, read

Again, I’m able to “Add a Venue”, but can’t edit it afterwards.

What is / are the rule(s) needed in order to modify Venue information?

Thank you.

Hi Michael,

Did you use a plugin like Members by Justin Tadlock to add a new role, or did you modify an existing role? I’ve tried testing this and haven’t been able to reproduce the problem.

Hello, yes I am using Membership from WPMUDev as well.

Can you give us a list of the capabilities you gave the role that you added? Maybe a screenshot so we can see the capabilities that have been added?
