User Role Editor WordPress plugin version 3.8 is published at September 1st, 2012. What’s new?
- Bug fix: Some times URE didn’t show real changes it made to the database. The reason was that direct database update did not invalidate data stored at WordPress cache. Special thanks to Knut Sparhell for the help with detecting this critical issue.
- WordPress core capabilities are shown separately from capabilities added by plugins and manually.
- If you configured URE to show you ‘Administrator’ role, you will see its capabilities, but you can not exclude any capability from it. I may just add capabilities to the Administrator role now. The reason – Administrator role should have all existing capabilities included.
- Brasilian Portuguese translation is updated.
functions.phpfile. It works for users with ‘Author’ role. If you wish to change it, then change ‘author’ in the code to role name you wish to use.
Is that all you need to do? No. You should remove ‘publish_posts’ capability from your users, otherwise user can to publish pending post himself again. Use User Role Editor plugin for that.
Do you wish to see how does this hack work? Let’s proceed with short video demonstration.
update_corecapability is used to decide, if user can update core WordPress file using built-in WordPress upgrade feature or not. What do you think?
Thoughts are just thoughts, while they are not confirmed by practice and strong experiment. Thus, I decided to check this obviouse guess, satisfy my curiosity and investigate, how and for what purpose WordPress uses update_core capability really. Result of my little investigation will be shown to you below.
Any WordPress blog/site owner have special accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, etc. to promote there sites.
Thus, having capability of easy showing your visitors your site social channels, enabling visitors to connect to their own social channels in one step with data from your site ready to send – it is a drastic enhancement to site usability, which leads finally to enlargement of traffic, quant of daily visitors, your content quotations at the Internet, that again increases traffic, etc., etc.
There are plenty of different plugins with needed social networking functionality: 440 plugins contain word “social” at description, 334 plugins have word “share” at theirs description. How did I get such data?
Did you ever meet with situation, when you searched plugin for your special need at WordPress.org, digged the Internet by hours, but without any success, and then, some time ago, you accidentally found some post about brilliant professionally made plugin, which sitted silently at WordPress plugins repository long time? Or you found that, what you need eventually, but – how many time did you spend on it?
But you are not glad. You are not happy. What the reason? You are angry on all those new blogs owners. They do, what they want. They change, what they wish. They should make good posts only! Why all of them are administrators of their blogs? The Administrator should be only one – You. Only One will Win – You! The biggest thing, what you may allow to your WordPress managed network blogs owners – be the editors on their blogs.
That’s a joke, of course. But some time, somewhere… What to do, if text above describes your situation somehow? Don’t worry, try “Win Only One” WordPress plugin. Just setup and activate for Network. It will help you transparently. Your problem will be resolved in the full silence.
