I’ve created a new role “Event Manager” and given them all of the permissions and capabilities that ECP lists here:
However, when my Event Manger tries to view the “attendees” they are redirected to the dashboard.
I found this URE forum post and tried adding the snippet linked with no luck.
Edit restriction capabilities with USR not working with The Event Calendar Pro
What am I missing?
Thanks!17/10/2019 at 03:18 #6041
Hi, do you use “Admin menu access” add-on for this role?
If Yes, try to switch it Off temporally. Will it resolve a problem?17/10/2019 at 03:44 #6042
Yes, when I deselect “Activate Administrator Menu Access module” the role is able to view the attendee list.
Next steps?17/10/2019 at 04:02 #6043
Read carefully the “Technical Details” part of the “Admin menu access” documentation page. It contains an explanation and possible workaround for this problem.17/10/2019 at 15:45 #6044
Is there anyway to reset the admin menu to the defaults? Anywhere to view the defaults for “Editor”?17/10/2019 at 15:51 #6045
Go to Users->User Role Editor, select ‘Editor’ role, click ‘Admin Menu’.
Click: “Selected” at the top of the window and switch OFF all checkboxes to the left from the menu items. You may use top checkbox (to the left from “Menu” word” to turn ON/OFF all checkboxes at once. Click ‘Update’ to save changes.
When nothing is selected, nothing is blocked.17/10/2019 at 16:01 #6046
Ok, I selected all available options in admin menu and removed all capabilities that were not on the following list of “Editor” capabilities from the WordPress docs.
However, now my editor role is redirecting to the homepage. eek!?

Ok, just saw that you wrote “Not selected”. All good now 🙂17/10/2019 at 16:32 #6048
I’m just going to throw this out there, but having a user with multiple roles is not very intuitive. I’ve been using WordPress for a very long time and am now on something like hour 8 of trying to figure out how to give our Store Manager/Event Manager proper access.
I should be able to create a role “Event Manager” and be able to have that roles menu visibility independent of other roles logic.
Instead of “Block” selected/unselected there should also be an option to “Show” selected.18/10/2019 at 01:33 #6049
WordPress shows admin menu items on the base of capabilities granted to a role or directly to a user. You should work with capabilities 1st to show/hide admin menu.
Often we meet a situation when we need to hide from user some part of admin menu, but they use the same capability, like ‘manage_options’. For example, you have 2 plugins which create menus A and B protected by the same capability manage_options. You wish to show for a role menu A, but not show menu B. You can not revoke ‘manage_options’ from a role, as it will lose access to menu A too. In this case and only in this case you may use admin menu blocking feature from URE Pro. URE Pro works on the base of WordPress permissions system and does not try to replace it.18/10/2019 at 15:49 #6052
Do you have any recommendations for someone that can get us setup in the way we would like?19/10/2019 at 15:09 #6054
Send admin credentials to support [at-sign] role-editor.com
