No way to view_others_posts without being forced to have edit_others_posts enabled
|Reported by:||archon810||Owned by:|
I'm using the Roles plugin to tweak default roles, and I'm looking to add the capability for Authors to read unpublished posts (drafts by other users, so that they can give feedback before they're published).
Unfortunately, it seems that while there's an edit_others_posts perm, there's no equivalent read_others_posts, so doing this is impossible unless you enable editing as well (that's not something I want to do). Read_private_posts doesn't do the trick either, in case you were going to suggest trying it.
The right solution, IMO, is to introduce read_others_posts (and same for pages).
