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!

    Hi—I’ve been trying to solve this same issue, and Venutius’ plugin works great, but I’m running into is that while the plugin active, the Groups page seems to vanish—it’s no longer listed on the Dashboard menu, and if I try to navigate directly to /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-groups it just returns a blank page. This happens even when I’m logged in as Administrator.

    Not sure if this is a bug or a conflict of some kind, but any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Does anyone know id there is a solution for this yet? I want to be able to grant some Admins just to be able to edit/update/etc USERS, but I have given “edit_users” permission and I have the same issue as described above where they cannot view the extended profile.

    @kjcarleo The easiest way without going to tinker with the database https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-switching/

    That doesn’t appear to address the issue. I want to be able to assign them to a particular role (User Role Editor), in this case, I created one called “Community Outreach Coordinator” and I simply want them to have permissions to edit user and extended profile fields.
