    Hello @Ohad

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    Please try to add the following code:

    add_filter( 'eab_post_type_register', 'eab_post_type_register_cb', 99, 1 );
    function eab_post_type_register_cb( $event_type_args ){
        $event_type_args['capabilities'] = array(
            'edit_post'          => 'update_core',
            'read_post'          => 'update_core',
            'delete_post'        => 'update_core',
            'edit_posts'         => 'update_core',
            'edit_others_posts'  => 'update_core',
            'publish_posts'      => 'update_core',
            'read_private_posts' => 'update_core'
        return $event_type_args;

    You can add those codes in your functions.php in the theme, if you think your theme won’t be changed. Otherwise mu-plugins is the best solution. To use mu-plugins, go to /wp-content/ and find the folder with name 'mu-plugins'. If there is no folder in that name, then create a folder, name it 'mu-plugins', create a file inside that, give any name you like and paste the code in there. You don't need to activate that plugin. Mu-plugins means must use plugins, so it will be activated automatically always. If you use mu-plugins then add a php start tag at the beginning of the code.

    Let us know if it works for you.
