    Hi – can any other role than Admin approve vendors and interact with this plugin? My client will run their marketplace but I don’t want them to have access to everything otherwise it will surely lead to disaster…
    Thanks in advance.


    Hi CyberSnaby,

    The user requires the ‘manage_options’ role at this stage. So you could use User Roles plugin to create a new ‘client-admin’ role that is a duplicate of the editor role with manage_options. However I think manage_options opens up quite a bit of the site. It’s late here so I cannot be sure, so you might need to check what manage_options provides.




    Thanks for the super-quick response Jamie. I just wondered if it had to be an Admin level user to work the Vendors functionality.

    I’ve used this plugin on another site so may give that a go: Admin Menu Editor Pro.

    It’s allowed me to hide the bits I need while showing the bits I want on view so far… just gotta test the functionality now…

    Shop Manager Role can also approve users I believe……..
