Roles and capabilities Task

Govintra includes custom capabilities for each of the custom post types and taxonomies.

Existing core WordPress roles work across all post types and taxonomies. So an editor can edit news, events, vacancies, blog posts etc.

You can create roles that are more granular and restrict publishing permissions to specific types of content or taxonomies.

You will need to install a third-party plugin to create new roles. We recommend Members.

Use your role management plugin to create new roles using the Govintra capabilities. For example, you could create a ‘News editor’ role, with permissions to create and publish news stories but with restrictions on all other types of content.
