I am using the plugin “WP Front User Roles” for one of our projects in the PRO version – but I have considerable problems with the plugin.
I created several “Custom Roles” and assigned them to some users – Although it is possible to edit the menu for the individual roles (e.g. display only certain menu items for certain roles), an actual backend usage is only possible with the role “Administrator”.
I have created my own “Management” role and tried to give access to some custom post types created via Toolset (https://toolset.com/) – no matter what permissions I give to the “Management” role, each time I interact with the user in the “Management” role.
a.) wants to edit something,
b.) wants to create something new,
c.) wants to delete something
I get the error message “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”
After that I tried to go the other way and give the role “management” all permissions and remove them bit by bit.
Even if the Management role has more permissions than the Administrator role (Management [Capabilities]: 427 / Administrator [Capabilities]: 393), it is not possible to edit or create content.
Even “regular” post types integrated into WordPress (such as normal pages or contributions) cannot be edited or created, and it is said that this cannot be due to the custom post types.
I already tried to activate “Read / Write / Delete” for all existing elements via Bulk Edit – that didn’t help either.
Since I felt like I tried everything and the plugin is driving me a bit into despair, I ask for your quick help!
Many thanks in advance for your efforts!February 25, 2019 at 7:44 pm #81649
Do you have menu editor enabled for your roles?

for sure the menu editor is enabled!
Display Deprecated Capabilities: Off (unchecked)
Remove Non-Standard Capabilities on Restore: Off (unchecked)
Override Edit Permissions: On (Checked) (here I tried both, nothing solves the problem)
Disable Navigation Menu Permissions: Off (unchecked)
Override Navigation Menu Permissions: Off (unchecked)
Customize Permissions (custom post types): All on checked
Disable Extended Permissions (post types): All off (unchecked)
Remove Data on Uninstall: Off (unchecked)
The editing of the menu is also possible without further ado – however, there seem to be problems with the permissions.
Please read my description carefully, it describes everything in detail!
Even if I really activate EVERYTHING for a role, I can’t edit the standard WordPress types (pages and posts) or Custom Post Types, because I always have to deal with the aforementioned errors.February 25, 2019 at 8:05 pm #81653
So if you have menu edited for these roles, then that message might be coming from there. You will get the same message from menu editor. Is it possible for you to enable all capabilities and deactivate this plugin and check?

yes, if I give the role “Management” all permissions and then deactivate the plugin, it works – but that’s not the point or the sense of the plugin, isn’t it?
On the basis of this information, can you tell me how we can fix the problem and tell us exactly what to do?
Many thanks in advance!February 25, 2019 at 9:36 pm #81655
This shows that your menu editor configurations are not working the way you expected. Can you restore defaults on it and start over?
