I asked a question over at StackExchange about this. Went into their chat room to talk to a few people and came to the conclusion I need to post this ticket.


When accessing an admin page located at post-new.php with a custom post type on a user that's in a custom role that has the available permission to "Add New", you get "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

$post_caps = array( 'delete_post' => 'argus_admin', );
$visitor_caps = $post_caps;
$visitor_caps = array_merge( $visitor_caps, array(

'edit_post' => 'argus_visitors',
'read_post' => 'argus_visitors',
'edit_posts' => 'argus_visitors',
'edit_others_posts' => 'argus_visitors',
'publish_posts' => 'argus_visitors',
'read_private_posts' => 'argus_visitors',


$v_args = array(

'labels' => array (

'name' => 'Visitors',
'singular_name' => 'Visitor',
'add_new_item' => 'Register New Visitor',


'public' => true,
'publicly_queryable' => false,
'exclude_from_search' => true,
'show_ui' => true,
'show_in_menu' => 'argus',
'show_in_menu' => false,
'hiearchical' => false,
'supports' => array( ),
'capabilities' => $visitor_caps,
'register_meta_box_cb' => array ( &$this, '_wp_visitor_meta_box_cb' ),


register_post_type( 'visitor', $v_args );

I've tested it with 3.0.4 and it worked flawlessly. However, when in 3.1, it doesn't want to work.
