Mismatched permissions for theme settings Forums » WordPress » Nirvana » Bugs Author Posts March 21st, 2020 at 00:13 #100295 sternerstuff The Nirvana settings page is added for all users with the “edit_theme_options” capability, which seems appropriate. However, the settings are then created and managed using the WordPress Settings API, which only allows updates by users with the “manage_options” capability (see the first yellow flag on the documentation). So if a user (such as an Editor) has been granted the “edit_theme_options” capability, they can view the settings page, but get a permissions error when they actually try to save. Both viewing and saving these settings should be behind the same permission. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You need to log in to reply to this topic.
