Members - Core Create Caps

Adds the create_posts and create_pages caps to posts/pages to separate them from their edit_* counterparts, providing more flexible editing capabilities.

About this plugin


Click on the role(s) you wish to edit via Users > Roles and grant the following capabilities (they’ll be listed):

  • Create Posts (create_posts)
  • Create Pages (create_pages)

From that point forward, only users who have roles with these capabilities will be able to edit posts or pages.

The create_* issue

Currently, there’s a bug in core WordPress that prevents users from having only the create_posts or create_pages capability. You’ll need the edit_posts or edit_pages capability to go along with that.

However, you can still have users who have the edit_posts or edit_pages caps without being able to create new posts/pages.
