I am getting closer to finishing the WP People version 2.0.
I have the administration page work. I have the install and upgrade buttons working. I also have the post replacement part working. All that is left is putting the link on a different menu so that Authors can update their WP People. Also, I need to format the css for the popup display.
So, after getting the install/update feature working, I figured out that only the Admin could see the WP People link on the User page. I figured this wasn’t good, because I setup WP People so that different users could have different WP People lists. So, the menu link needed to go somewhere else, because the User menu is not available to Authors. I tried to find a way to put it on the Profile menu, but couldn’t. Then I read about adding menus in the codex, but that didn’t seem to help me, because it talked about adding the menus in the Admin menu. So, it would still get back to only people with access to the Admin menu could see the new menu item.
However, I did decide that it would be better to add the WP People link to the Manage menu. It makes sense to manage the list there, since the links end up in the posts.
I think I might have to find some sort of plug-in to do this. Maybe like this one.
We’ll see how it goes.
