I have an art site that I want other artists to be able to sign up and post blog posts and products including uploading images. I duplicated the Author user role and edited it to give me most of the permissions I need.
The last couple things I have not been able to edit using this plugin are –
1.in the media library – is it possible to only show your uploads and not all of them?
2. I have access to the products section where I can see all of the products. but Is it possible to only show your products and not all of the products?
3. Is it possible to allow the creation of a post and of a product but leave it in draft mode so the admin has to publish it? (or is that just simply done by a different plugin?)
4. is it possible to control what fields show up on the product page?
1, 2 – It’s possible to setup via “Edit restrictions add-on“. Activate it, then open “Edit post” dialog for a role and select “Own data only”.
3 – You had to use as a base role for the starting point the contributor role, not the author. Revoke from a role these capabilities: ‘publish_posts’, ‘publish_products’, ‘edit_published_posts’, ‘edit_published_products’, ‘delete_published_posts’, ‘delete_published_products’.
4. You can not control with URE what fields are shown at the front-end product page.
