LOL… are we telepathically in sync or so 🙂
I just did that and wanted to ‘report’ that it does work when all capabilities are turned on… so will investigate further…
Edit: I killed caps 1 by 1 until I got to manage_options which seems to be the trigger.
I then looked throughout the entire template but I can’t find any indication where this would be set. I only have 5 functions which check if
current_user_can and non indicate that it could be related.
I might know a workaround, by adding the capability manage_options to this user role and then extend all if
current_user_can('manage_options') queries with specific roles.
The most important one being to redirect any user who has no business in the admin.
It’s not ideal, I’m the first one to agree, but I don’t see any way right now… I don’t know where to look anymore.
