Authors can see files uploaded by other authors in Media Library
|Reported by:||andreyk||Owned by:|
I build a site for many users (but not multisite) and find that in the media library (wp-admin/upload.php) the 'author'-user (not admin) can see the list of all files uploaded by other authors.
It is not a problem in case users are close friends and the list is not large but it's unsuitable when users are competitors, also hundreds of other's pictures is a bother.
Yes, current_user_can() prevents from editing or deleting pictures uploaded by other users but there is no need even see them here (or maybe make this feature switchable)?
