There is caching on the site via their host: WP Engine, which has been ‘cleared’ and tested with the same intermittent results.
Deactivating plugins really isn’t an option considering the site is live and needs all working plugins in order to make the site fucntional. I would have to do it during off-time.
Any other possible tests to do that will not disable the functionality of the site?23/09/2016 at 16:16 in reply to: Serious problem with user not able to edit content blocks. Settings are correct. #2786
Update this morning:
Out of the 11 posts that the user role should be able to edit, only two were able to be edited (even though all 11 are listed).
The first one I was able to make edits/save/re-edit/resave without issue.
The second one I was able to make edits/save/re-edit and I attempted to save only to be presented with the message: Sorry, you are not allowed to edit this post.
Then when I attempted to edit any of the others, the error message appeared intermittently.23/09/2016 at 16:05 in reply to: Serious problem with user not able to edit content blocks. Settings are correct. #2785
Well I’m using the abbreviation for the sake of this post. So that isn’t a concern.
The Content Blocks is plugin Custom Post Widget (https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-widget/).22/09/2016 at 17:35 in reply to: Serious problem with user not able to edit content blocks. Settings are correct. #2779
Please let me know ASAP when you can look into this as this is a rather urgent issue.22/09/2016 at 17:09 in reply to: Serious problem with user not able to edit content blocks. Settings are correct. #2777
MU is the user role. All users with MU user role have access to these same content blocks.
“Is the same user logout/login to resolve a problem or on logout and other login?”
That is a VERY good question. I don’t know as I’m just requested to fix the problem.
So what can I do to try to resolve the issue? I’ve cleared out caching via WP Engine and the same issue occurs. I’m able to edit some but not all content blocks. The error is intermittent and doesn’t matter which content block I try to access.11/08/2016 at 18:29 in reply to: Create User Role Restriction for Certain Widget Blocks #2622
Okay, so I went to Settings > User Role Editor > ‘Force custom post types to use their own capabilities’ and was able to refine the role’s access to certain items.
This worked very well.11/08/2016 at 18:23 in reply to: Create User Role Restriction for Certain Widget Blocks #2621
Following these instructions: https://www.role-editor.com/block-wordpress-admin-menu-items/
I was able to get a role to access certain Widget Blocks. Unfortunately, the plugin that I gave access to this role shares the same capability. So now I have two more plugins accessible by this role that share the same capability, but I don’t want this role to get access to these plugins.
So how do I exclude these other plugins that share the same capability and still give access to the role to only the Widget Blocks?
Plugin: Widget Blocks
Capability: edit_posts, create_posts (I selected the following: edit_posts, edit_others_posts—this had to be selected–,create_posts, edit_published_posts)
Posts edit: 8981, 8983
Other plugins that share the same Capabilities:
Plugin: AGP Icons
Capability: manage_options, edit_posts
Plugin: Meta Slider
Capability: I don’t know because I can’t see it listed in the Admin Menu. So obviously this must share a capability.
So how do I get rid of access to AGP Icons and Meta Slider for this role?
