I'm using a plugin that create an additional record in the wp-option. Everything is great with the admin account, the record can be save and update. But I'm stuck with allowing one of the custom role I have made. I want to enable these role to do the same as well. I have try the "manage_options" but no luck. I think I might have miss something very simple. Anyone has any idea?

    Please add the code of how option table item is saved and updated. In which page user can do that? Please describe in more details. – sakibmoon Jul 2 '15 at 5:35
  • Hi @sakibmoon, I was using this plugin. This is for the custom tax meta field. So these field appear in my custom tax. From looking at the code it is using the update_option to store the data in the wp-option table. So I think it has something to do with the capability for my custom role to access that wp_option table. – Kuma Ranger Jul 2 '15 at 6:51

I sort out the problem now. It seem that the permission for 'manage_categories' is needed for this plugin.
