I have created a non-admin user role to manage users. I have given this role the following capabilities: Create User, Delete User, Edit User, List Users, list roles. A member with this role CAN create a new user. However when they list Users from the dashboard, they cannot edit any users. They do not get a edit button. I am using the "members" plugin to mange roles, although I see the same results when I set the capabilities programatically. I really don't want the user manager to be a full admin.
The following capabilities are needed to fully manage users:
create_users edit_users promote_users delete_users remove_users list_users
Remove role, you've created with Members plugin. Add the following code to
functions.php of your active theme:
add_role( 'users_manager', __( 'Users Manager' ), array( 'read' => true, 'list_users' => true, 'promote_users' => true, 'remove_users' => true, 'edit_users' => true, 'create_users' => true, 'delete_users' => true, ) );
Once 'users_manager' role is created, you can remove above code from
