I am trying to: ensure that a child custom post type is locked to certain user roles.

I have a parent custom post type of 'vendor' and a child custom post type of 'vendor-review' and I have a user role type of 'vendor' who can only edit their own listing. I want to ensure that vendors are NOT able to create, edit or delete any vendor reviews on the back end.

The vendor listing shows all child vendor reviews within the 'edit' screen of the vendor custom post type. How do I hide this, or lock it so that vendors are not able to alter or delete reviews.

I visited this URL: its an admin link, so without login details you won't be able to see it.

I expected to see: hopefully a list of all the child reviews for that vendor greyed out or hidden entirely.

Instead, I got: Was all the child custom post types fully editable within the parent vendor edit screen.


Please try Access plugin, more help:
Access Control for Standard and Custom Content Types:


Hi Luoy,

Access has caused known problems in the past and I've had to stop using it as it was the only plugin that clashed with everything else and caused it to stop working.

What else can I do?



I suggest you try Access and feedback if there is any problem you meet, and if it is a bug, I will forward it to our developers to fix.


I suggest you modified the access settings:
hidden link
post type "Vendor Reviews"

enable the "Publish" privileges for the user role "Subscriber"

please feedback if there is any "problem clashed with everything else". thanks


Why would I change the publish privileges for the Subscriber? I don't want them to have any access at all.. what would making this change accomplish as I'm confused?


Access is using wordpress User Levels system to manage the user roles.
According to wordpress document:

You will need set user role "Vendor" as a lower role, which can not be able to create, edit or delete posts of post type "vendor reviews".
