TOPIC: User Access Control

User Access Control 9 years 6 months ago #22154

Currently it appears that only site ADMINISTRATOR can access the Spider Catalog options. Is it possible to set it to allow access from a site EDITOR as well?

It doesn't show up on the back end for any level under Administrator. I would think it would be more logical to have a option to allow your site EDITOR to access it as well. I am sure I can use a separate plugin if needed but, prefer to see if I was missing a simple change within the plugin itself first.

Reason: I set up the site with the look and plugins desired, but would want another person to be able to add and edit products/categories etc. as well as add pages and post, but NOT CHANGE SITE PLUGINS AND UPDATES etc.

UPDATE: Really do not want to have to use a third party to make it viewable to a EDITOR. If you can point me to the file and code to change I can easily fix it for my use.

However, I can't understand why that is not a OPTION for it to really become more useful for its purpose. I can't see why it wouldn't already be available to a EDITOR level...or at the least a option for the administrator under its GLOBAL SETTING.

It's forcing me to bloat my site with additional plugins for such a simple code change.. B)

Dear Hal,

Please be informed, that unfortunately Spider Catalog does not have this functionality by default. You are correct about using another plugin to achieve the mentioned. You can use this plugin for example: wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-access-manager/

Thank you.

I knew that was the answer, however...could you point me to where I can change the line of code to change for my site instance?

Dear Hal,

Please find Spider_Catalog_options_panel function in catalog.php file. There are different pages mentioned there, so if you need to allow other users to manage. You will need to replace the manage_options with manage_categories in add_submenu_page.

For example if there's the following:
add_submenu_page('Categories_Spider_Catalog', 'Global Options', 'Global Options', 'manage_options', 'Options_Catalog_global', 'Options_Catalog_global');

You will need to replace it with the code below:
add_submenu_page('Categories_Spider_Catalog', 'Global Options', 'Global Options', ' manage_categories', 'Options_Catalog_global', 'Options_Catalog_global');

Thank you.
