Troubleshooting PublishPress Permissions

We’ve had a couple of reports from users unable to access the “Permissions” menu link in PublishPress.

If this happens to you, follow these steps:

The Capability Manager Enhanced plugin for WordPress
  • Go to User > Capabilities.
  • In the top-right corner, look for “Select Role to View / Edit”.
  • Click “Administrator”.
  • Click “Load”.
  • Also on the right side of the screen, look for “Custom Capability”.
  • Enter “pp_manage_capabilities”.
  • Click “Add to role”.
  • You can now check the “pp manage capabilities” box in the center of the screen.
  • Click “Save Changes”.

Now check to see if you can access the “Permissions” menu link.
