Following situation: We want to build a role system which is in a sense hierarchical:
Administrator: can create “Supervisor” accounts …
Supervisor: can create “Create” accounts …
Create: Can create posts …
User: can only read
So right now we have a White Label Plugin installed (http://codecanyon.net/item/white-label-branding-for-wordpress/125617) including a Role Manager which can do:
– Set permissions per Role
– Create new roles
– Create new permissions
Only problem we are having now is:
We can allow roles to “creater user”, and “set user role”, but then it’s not restricted. So a “Supervisor” can create other supervisors, which he is not supposed to be able to.
Any ideas how to achieve this with minimum effort?
One Idea would be to write a plugin where you can map roles to other roles and then have a custom “add user page” which reads the options of the plugin, but maybe there is an out of the box solution I oversaw oder maybe a plugin like that exists? I didn’t find one…
Thanks for your help!
