Using WP4.1.1 and Civi4.5.8

How do we display a menu for a non Admin WP role? We created a new role in WP for CiviUsers and would like to display the top Civi menu like Admins get. THANKS.

  • Could you clarify which menu you mean? Is it the regular civi menu with 'Search', 'Contacts' etc.? Commented Apr 16, 2015 at 12:37

If I am understanding correctly you wanting other roles to access CiviCRM menu, which is linked to the WordPress Access Control and giving that role CiviCRM: access CiviCRM. You would then have to give them the access to whatever other features are needed. These settings are in Administer > User and Permissions > Permissions (Access Control) and select WordPress Access Control.

  • That is already set. We have a WP Role called CiviYHFH and the CiviCRM:access CiviCRM is checked. When I log in the CiviMenu at the top does not appear. I will have to check deeper.... Commented Apr 16, 2015 at 21:19
  • Clearing cache maybe?

  • After digging deeper I found that the menus are being blocked by our main developer for security reasons! Only Admins had access. Commented Apr 23, 2015 at 18:30
