Author role overrides edit image title set by editor
|Reported by:||noyu||Owned by:|
If assigned as 'Author' as Role in Wordpress User Setting, Author cannot add or edit the 'Edit Image Title' field for any images (even though they upload themselves)
Furthermore, if there is an existing text in 'Edit Image Title' field, and if Author 'Save Draft' or 'Update Post' (without doing any editing at all), the Image Title will be removed.
In other words, only the Roles of 'Admin' and 'Editor' are able to add Image Titles to images. The Role of 'Author' cannot add image titles and not only that, by accessing and saving a post, any existing Image Titles added by Admin or Editor becomes removed.
I tested on Wordpress version 2.8.6 and 2.9.1
I have previously posted a thread on the support forum here http://wordpress.org/support/topic/356199?replies=1#post-1365412
