    11Hi @pyrobd,

    3 I figured out why it works on the fresh install. If you create a new user with the Contributor or Author role those users will have the "edit_posts" capability. Existing Authors and Contributos on my site don't have the "edit_posts" capability. That's why it works on a fresh install but not on my existing site. There was apparently a change made to the default Capabilities for these roles (maybe in 5.9?). You can install the User Role Editor plugin to remove the edit_posts capability for these two users to see the problem.
