This is my first plugin using roles and capabilities. How can I give the "subscriber" users access to my plugin in the WP admin, or make a menu for just subscribers?


You can wrap the parts you want a subscriber to see by wrapping the code with:

if ( current_user_can( 'read' ) ){
    // the code you want the subscriber to see

You can checkout the role and capabilities here https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities#Subscriber

  • Super, but i fixed changing the manage_options to "read", and after that some logic to show/hide things. Thanks! – Asinox Oct 2 '15 at 3:37
