Logged in as admin I have the “tools” in the connections sub-menu where we can export entries, so all ok.
But, when logged in as editor, all the other connections sub-menus are there, BUT the “tools” one… how can I get the “tools” link to be available for editors?

The Connections : Tools admin page will only be available to admins. You can use a plugin like User Role Editor to give the Editor role the required capabilites so the menu will show. The capabilities you’ll need to add to the Editor roles are:
Note of caution, this will also open up other areas in WordPress that are managed by those same capabilities.
Hope that helps!01/06/2016 at 6:30 pm #360222
Thanks for quick reply.
I tried adding the capabilities, but no change. Am I missing something?

I’m sorry! I forgot to mention something important. The capabilities I listed are for the 8.5.8 version that I plan on releasing tomorrow/Friday. With 8.5.7 you need only the install_plugins capability. When developing the new tools I used the install_plugins capability… forgetting to set the correct capabilities. Version 8.5.8 fixes this.01/11/2016 at 4:20 pm #360767
I update to the latest version but nothing changed. the editor cannot see the tools menu and export (You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.). I need them to be able to do this so what now? they are on my every hour here so not sure what to tell them.

Oh, fudge!!! I made a mistake with the permissions. You want the editor to see the Tools menu and the import and then export tabs, correct?01/11/2016 at 6:21 pm #360770
yup – thanks.

If you can give me a temp admin login, I can make the two very minor tweaks to make this show up properly for the editor as long as they have the import and export capabilities which I believe they have by default. You can post the login detail here as a private reply.01/11/2016 at 8:50 pm #360777
Ok, was incorrect editors do not have the import export capabilities by default… just wanted to correct that statement I made in my previous reply.01/11/2016 at 8:51 pm #360778This reply has been marked as private.
