Allow Moderators to see private messages?

  • hauge.james


    Currently only admin are able to see private messages of the users. This is good, but is there a way to allow moderators this ability too?

    The site is using bbpress and buddypress and a couple other small plugins to help with making the forum the way we want.

    The ability to see private messages is controlled by the check bp_current_user_can( 'bp_moderate' ) which is true for site or network admins.

    You could probably filter that value for some other role, like editor, but it would be a bit complicated to make it work only for private messages. Here’s more information about working with the WP capabilities system:
