    Thank you for your plugin it does a really good job setting up the roles, Nonetheless I think I’ve found  a bug: 
    When the plugin is active nobody can moderate comments (except for admin) I have tried several combinations of capabillities (I have thick them all with a role) and still doesn’t work.

    I install a brand new WordPress, download the plugin, once activated editor, author etc. can’t longer moderate comments.  Any idea about whats happening?

    After some testing and debuggin I’ve figure it out that is not your plugin’s fault it’s a third-party plugin that is preventing any user (except admin) to moderate comments. That means that no matter how many capabilities I gave to a new user it will not moderate comments

  • Thanks for letting me know that User Role Editor is not the reason of your problem, finally. May be it will better to use some other plugin with similar functionality?

    Vlad, Sorry about the late answer, thank you for your advice But I haven’t found anyother plugin that has similar functionality, nonetheless I found the error, the plugin wasn’t encue an ajax call if the user is not an administrator: current user can ‘administrator’, after change this to current user can ‘manage_options’ all worked like a charm 🙂 with your plugin.

  • That’s cool. Thanks.
