I have added a custom post type "Review", and a custom role "Reviewer". The issue is when logged as admin I take review which current author is admin and I want to change author to a Reviewer I have no options in dropdown besides admin. When I change a post whose author is a Reviewer, I have 2 options in dropdown: the current author and admin. Other Reviewers are not visible.
here is a part with capabilities
'capabilities' => array( 'edit_post' => 'edit_review', 'edit_others_posts' => 'edit_others_reviews', 'publish_posts' => 'publish_reviews', 'read_post' => 'read_swpd_review', 'read_private_posts' => 'read_private_reviews', 'delete_post' => 'delete_swpd_review' ),
and setting new role
/* Add guest author role to the blog */ add_role('reviewer', 'Reviewer', array('edit_review','read_review','delete_review')); //add capabilities for admin $role_object = get_role( 'administrator' ); $role_object->add_cap( 'read_review' ); $role_object->add_cap( 'edit_review' ); $role_object->add_cap( 'delete_review' ); $role_object->add_cap( 'publish_reviews' ); $role_object->add_cap( 'edit_others_reviews' ); //set level for reviewer (should fix a dropdown bug) $role_object = get_role( 'reviewer' ); $role_object->add_cap('level_1');
Is it a matter of capabilities? What could be wrong?
