    I have a plugin called WP Auto Republish and it appears to give everyone at Author and above access to a button under All Posts that says “Republish” next to “Edit”, “Quick Edit”, “Trash” etc. I need to restrict this feature’s ability to Admin only but I cannot find the capability in the list or in Meta Boxes. Do I need to add a certain capability from inside the plugin in order to restrict access to it? I need the ability to automatically republish certain posts but cannot have authors republishing their own posts to get it to the top of the site. Limiting access to this essential. Is there a way to look up capabilities inside a plugin? Thanks in advance.


    Never mind! I figured out an alternative:

    add_filter( ‘post_row_actions’, ‘remove_row_actions’, 10, 1 );
    function remove_row_actions( $actions )
    if( get_post_type() === ‘post’ )
    unset( $actions[‘republish’] );
    return $actions;


    OK. Thanks for sharing.
