Thank you very much. You wrote „ Adding terms to a taxonomy requires the WP manage_categories permission.“
In the field settings I gave anyone the right by enabling „add new tags“ (the frontend form is only visible to user role „author“ anyway, so no misuse risk).
Again: when accessing the form as admin, in accordance with the above setting, I do see a plus sign appear on hover that allows adding tags. But that same plus sign isn’t visible for „author“ role. To me, that doesn’t make sense, because the setting isn’t role specific (I thought).
How and where can I add the permission you mentioned?
