I just wonder if there is a way to display dashboard for other than admin user(it should be) but for some reason nothing displaying except my account page.

I created a new user role staff using user role editor plugin and added a new user set to staff using basic capabilities adding post, reading private pages etc. However, when I login nothing displays other than Myaccount page

You must assign admin capability to custom role.

You can assign 'manage_options' capability for user role plugin.


Add following code in custom plugin or functions.php file of child theme, and reactive plugin/theme after code is added.

$result = add_role(
    __( 'Staff' ),
        'manage_options' => true
  • I tried ure_manage_options for some reason nothing changed, I wonder it should be easy to add a new post other than admin that's what I am trying by creating a new role for it. All I want is based on user login dashboard changes to their capabilities
