The capability used for managing tags should be separate from that for categories
|Reported by:||johnbillion||Owned by:||johnbillion|
The capability used for managing categories is manage_categories. Guess what it is for managing tags? It's not manage_tags, nor manage_post_tags. It's manage_categories too.
This causes a problem when you're trying to control capabilities for tags and categories separately.
The patch to change the capability for tags to manage_post_tags is a simple one, but it could potentially introduce an issue where people who have the manage_categories capability would no longer be able to manage tags.
Thoughts? Should this be changed?
