#8072 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

'edit_users' capability not allowing extended profiles to be viewed/edited

Reported by: venutius's profile Venutius Owned by: dcavins's profile dcavins
Milestone: 10.0.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Members Keywords: needs-patch good-first-bug


I've raised a couple of tickets to address some capability checks for 'edit_users' in bp membes admin ( #8069 #8070 ) however, with these changes in place we still don't get the desired results. Whilst those users can now see the 'Extended' option in the user list, clicking on it returns a page with a content of -1.

This is caused by line 904 of `buddypress/bp-members/classes/class-bp-members-admin.php not including a check for 'edit_users':

if ( ! bp_current_user_can( 'bp_moderate' ) && empty( $this->is_self_profile ) ) {

I suggest we change this to:

if ( ! current_user_can( 'edit_users' ) && ! bp_current_user_can( 'bp_moderate' ) && empty( $this->is_self_profile ) ) {

I'd like to see a patch about it, if this can happen, I'm fine with including it into 10.0.0

In 13161:

In BP_Members_Admin, add checks for 'edit_users' capability.

BP_Members_Admin checks the bp_moderate
capability in several situations when
checking whether or not the user can
generally edit users is also a sensible check.

Props venutius.
