Alpha Version Released

Custom Write Panel version alpha is available below. Though unstable (I suppose, since it hasn’t undergone many test cases), it should be safe to install it.

The agreement is, when you download it, you’ll be testing it for me. Thanks :). Significant enhancement requests most likely will be turned down, but do mention them. I’ll save them for the next release. Please direct any feedback to my forum.

2007-07-10 1.0.0a11

Change log:
Allow restricting access to a custom write panel to a specific role.

Upgrade instruction:
Do either one (not both) of the following.

  1. Do complete uninstallation as specified in readme.txt, de-activate, and re-activate the plugin. This will remove all custom write panel data previously saved.
  2. Run the following SQL statements in phpMyAdmin (or similar tool) in your WordPress database. Change the table name wp_rc_cwp_write_panels accordingly.

ALTER TABLE wp_rc_cwp_write_panels ADD capability_name VARCHAR( 50 ) NOT NULL ;

For the latter method of upgrading, you also have to update your existing custom write panels for the right field in the table to be populated. Just edit, hit update (no need to make any changes), and you’re set.

To enable access restriction of a custom write panel to a specific role, go to ‘Options’ > ‘Custom Write Panel’ and select “Assign custom write panels to a role.” Secondly, you need to install the plugin “Role Manager.” After activating Role Manager, go to ‘Users’ > ‘Roles.’ You should see a list of roles with all capabilities that can be assigned to them. You should see capabilities with names similar (if not the same) as the names of your custom write panels.

Yes, the implementation still has some holes in it. But do report it in the forum when you see one.
