Hi

We are wanting to give forum admins access to parts of the Wordpress admin but not all of it. Right now the requirement to establish if they are admin are quite high. (activate_plugins, install_plugins, create_sites)

Could I request that you add a filter on the function wpforo_current_user_is, which would allow us to determine if they are admin ourselves.

Or is there another method to solve this?

Thanks

Mistral

Hi @mistral,

The hook will be added in the next version release.

Please follow the steps below to get it to work in your case: 

In the functions.php file located in wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/ folder, find the wpforo_current_user_is() function and replace with the following one:

function wpforo_current_user_is( $role ) {
$role = strtolower( $role );

$filter_result = apply_filters('wpforo_current_user_is', NULL, $role);
if( !is_null($filter_result) ) return (bool) $filter_result;

switch ( $role ) {
case 'admin':
if ( current_user_can( 'activate_plugins' ) ) {
return true;
}
if ( current_user_can( 'install_plugins' ) ) {
return true;
}
if ( current_user_can( 'create_sites' ) ) {
return true;
}
break;
case 'moderator':
if ( WPF()->perm->usergroup_can( 'aum' ) ) {
return true;
}
if ( current_user_can( 'moderate_comments' ) ) {
return true;
}
if ( current_user_can( 'edit_published_posts' ) ) {
return true;
}
if ( current_user_can( 'manage_categories' ) ) {
return true;
}
break;
}

return false;
}

As I've already mentioned, the changes will be included in the next version, so you can update the plugin without any worries, the changes will not be lost.
