Giving editor access to edit extended profile

    I want to give the editor role access to edit the extended profile of any user. The only way I can see to do this is with the manage_options cap, which obviously is not the sort of cap you want to give to an editor.

    Is there a way of just giving access to edit extended profiles without using the manage_options cap?

    BP 4.2, WP5.1.1

    Hi John, that’s odd I’m nt seeing that error, are you multisite or single-site?

    Single site, although it is a heavily customised BP install with some legacy code that I’m yet to fully un-pick. That said there’s nothing that I’ve seen that should affect permissions.

    I just checked the administrator role, which does have every cap granted.

    Settings pages for all other plugins on the site work fine.

    I could only find the settings link on the plugins page, it doesn’t appear elsewhere does it?

    Ah that was it, I’ve been using the settings link from the settings menu, I’ve fixed the link on the plugins page now.

    Still get the same error I’m afraid. Can see that it points to /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bp-devolved-authority-settings now. I couldn’t see any link directly from the settings menu.

    That indicated it’s not recognising you as admin. I’ve changed this check now, could you reload and try?

    Think I found the problem, it was only loading if messaging was active, I’ve removed that check now.

    Ah yes, messaging is not active on the site. That fixed it anyway – looks to work perfectly at the back end. Pretty much all of the front-end BP functionality is disabled so I can’t test that. Thank you!
