User Roles and Permissions

You can control users roles and permission in WP Eventin in order to give specific access to users. You can manage your events smoothly in more secure ways. With the user’s roles permission, you can get the following advantages.

  • Give specific permission to any user group or a user
  • Restricting users within specific capabilities

In order to set the ‘User roles and permission’, you will need to create users and then assign the permission. We tested and set the user roles with the User Role Editor and Adminimize orAdmin Menu Editor‘ plugins. However, you can use other available plugins to set user roles and permission. Let’s see how can you implement it on your website.

Required Plugin – 1) User Role Editor 2) Adminimize or Admin Menu Editor

Step 01
Create user/users on your site.

Go to the WordPress dashboard and click on ‘Add New’ from the ‘Users’ menu. You will get it in the left-side menu. After that fill up all necessary details such as user name, email, first name, last name etc. Scroll down and check the ‘Role’ section. Please carefully add the role and keep notes for future use. Once you are happy, click on the bottom button, ‘Save Changes’.
