If your users are receiving this error it is because the role they have been assigned does not have add or edit entry capabilities for Connections. Huh? What did you just say? Let me explain. Every registered user is assigned a user role. These roles define what a user is permitted to do and not do once they are logged in. By default all users are a “Subscriber”. Ok, so how do I give my “Subscribers” the add/edit capability? This is really easy. Go to the Connections : Roles admin page, there you will find all the roles that are available and under each a list of every capability that is available for Connections. The capabilities you’re interesting in are two pairs of options; “Add Entry” / “Edit Entry” and “Add Entry Moderated” / “Edit Entry Moderated”. If you check “Add Entry” and “Edit Entry”, the users assigned to the “Subscriber” role will be able to add and edit their entry for Connections without admin moderation. Similarly, if you check “Add Entry Moderated” / “Edit Entry Moderated”, the users assigned to the “Subscriber” role will be able to add and edit their entry for Connections with admin moderation. While you here, make sure to add the add and edit capabilities the other user roles. Once you set the options, don’t forget to save them by clicking the “Update” button. That’s it, your users will not longer receive that nasty error message and they’ll be able to add and edit their own entry. Easy, right?
