User Role Editor WordPress plugin version 3.7 is published at June 23rd, 2012. What’s new?
- ‘Select All’, ‘Unselect All’, ‘Inverse’ buttons were added to the from for more convenient capabilities management while role editing.
- Role and capability name could be started from digit, and underscore ‘_’ character. Hyphen ‘-’ character could be included into such name too.
- Old versions used ‘edit_users’ capability to check if show/hide ‘User Role Editor’ menu item under ‘Users’ menu. Starting from version 3.7 ‘administrator’ role is checked. Existed inconsistency, when non-admin user with ‘edit_users’ capability saws ‘User Role Editor’ menu, but got ‘Only Administrator is allowed to use User Role Editor’ error message, was removed.
- Bug fix: if you work with WordPress admin via https, URE will use https instead of http, as it made in older versions.
As new text was added to plugin main form, translations for all languages wait for updates. Former and new translators are welcome!

June 16th, 2012

Long period of waiting for the new WordPress 3.4 version was finished: if you were starving to get it, touch it, install it on your site, if you almost lost your patience, skipping all those beta 1, beta 2, Release Candidate 1, RC2 releases, if you even tried it at test environment, but still waited that great moment, when you could take it out of the box and put it to the live environment, if, finally, even some little part of written above is about you – we all together have very good news last week – WordPress 3.4 is here, with us! Download it, install it, use it, grow with it, and help to make it better :)!

- live theme preview. You can change theme appearance parameters and see how it would be on the fly;
- easy tweets embedding;
- HTML code in the images captions from Media Gallery is allowed now;
- and a lot of changes under the hood, not so easy visible as others, but very useful for developers.

Capabilities set for Custom Post Type

June 10th, 2012

Special capabilities for custom post type

custom post type capabilities

You configured custom post type at your WordPress managed site. You did it with special plugin or manually. It works good. But what to do, if it uses standard WordPress posts permissions, e.g. ‘edit_posts’, but you need to separate access for standard and custom posts for authors and editors? Does WordPress offer a decision?
Yes. Custom post type may have custom capabilities set defined and it could be fully different from the standard post capabilities set.
What variants do you have?
1st, – use plugin which can manage not just custom post types, but custom capabilities set for those custom post types too. Good example is Custom Post Types UI WordPress plugin. I used it myself long time at my personal Russian language site FiNovel.com. Inspite of little quant of “Works” reviews at WordPress plugins repository page, I confirm – it works.
