For the time being, we will leave our forums open for reading and learning while we work on creating a more robust Knowledge Base for everyone to use.

If you are a WC Vendors Pro customer please open a support ticket here. 

If you are a WC Vendors user please open a support ticket on the Wordpress.org forums.

    The capabilities allow for submitting live products & editing published products: ‘can_submit_live_products’ & ‘can_edit_published_products’ capabilities.

    Bit there’s nothing in the way of a vendor editing another vendors products. Worse still, if that product is edited it’s ownership changes and not shows up in the new owners product list!

    Bit of a security breach. Easy enough to do by just adding /edit/xxx to a product in the dashboard.

    Interesting. Thanks for that. We’ll have that patched up immediately for v1.1.1.

    All fixed. It was just a typo. You can fix this immediately by editing:


    and changing line #317 from:

    case 'products':


    case 'product':

    …and this will be included in v1.1.1, as well by default.


    Thanks. Though I’ll have to change the droids message! 🙂


    Hi Stephen,

    Thanks for finding this, I’ll update the permission.php template to something sensible for the next release so you don’t have to override that template 🙂
