WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to give a user the capability to add pages to the menu. So I gave him the edit_theme_options capability using the User Role Editor plugin.

This gives him the capability to see Appearance - Menus, see the structure and also add pages to the menu, or so it seems. Because although the system allows him to add the item to the menu structure and move it to the right position when he presses 'Save Menu' the system just says that the menu was saved, but the new item is not there in the menu.

It seems that Wordpress is just acknowledging the request and discarding it in reality. It works OK with Admin so I presume this might be some permission issue. Is there any other capability I need to give the user for menu editing to work?
