Writer userrole can delete events from other users

Hi,

On my website users with the role Writer are able to delete events from other users.
Is that suppose to be like that?

    Hi,

    I noticed the term Writer is wrong (I use Dutch and there it's called Writer).
    It's the Contributor role in WP.

    I also noticed the Event add-on Capabilities. I activated it and for that role it shows:

    Your Contributor users can...

    V …Edit Events
    …Edit Others Events
    …Publish Events
    …Edit Published Events
    V …Delete Events
    …Delete Published Events

    So it looks that the mark before Delete Events means Delete Others Events.
    I unchecked it and now 'normal' users are not able to delete others events.

    Is that a bug or is it working as designed?

    Greetings Age,

    Thank you so much for your additional input and clarification, it is greatly appreciated and explains why I thought you were possibly using a role manager to create and manage the "Writer" role.

    This indeed explained a lot and thank you for that.

    This is indeed the intended use of this function and happy to see that you got this resolved.
