Where is your changelog for Discussion Board Pro? I think my recent update to 1.8.2 created a permissions issue with my intranet, causing all of my authors and editors NOT to be able to upload files other than jpgs and pngs or view media files other than their own (even when they are doing regular posts outside of your discussion board).
I traced the issue to your file class-ct-db-pro-uploader.php lines 75 ,100, 120 where you limit uploads to if( current_user_can( ‘manage_options’ ) )
I understand the logic here, but in my case I need my trusted authors and editors to be able to see all media and upload files. I changed the code to if( current_user_can( ‘publish_posts’ ) )
Can you update your code so it doesn’t mess with general WordPress user roles? Authors and editors should have this capability built in, but your code apparently removed it in my case.
I love your plugin, but this issue hurt my credibility with my clients when their capabilities went missing and they needed to share files. Fortunately, those capabilities are now restored but I don’t want them to go missing again with an update to this plugin.
Thanks for your insight and assistance.
