    I am having trouble getting permissions to work for my custom post types, but only the ones that live in a custom admin menu I created:

    add_filter('custom_menu_order', 'pw_custom_menu_order'); // Activate custom_menu_order
    add_filter('menu_order', 'pw_custom_menu_order');
    function pw_custom_menu_order($menu_ord) {
    if (!$menu_ord)
    return true;

    return array(
    'index.php', // Dashboard
    'edit.php', // Posts
    'edit.php?post_type=page', // Pages
    'pw-parts-slug', // Parts
    'separator1', // First separator

    So, when I assign a permission to this custom post type, it doesn’t work (the user gets a “Sorry, you don’t have permission” screen:

    /* Speech Post Type */
    register_post_type('speech', array(
    'labels' => array(
    'name' => __('Speeches'),
    'singular_name' => __('Speech')
    'public' => true,
    'show_in_menu'=> 'pw-parts-slug',
    'show_in_rest' => true,
    'has_archive' => true,
    'hierarchical' => true,
    'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'thumbnail'),

    But if I change the above line to:

    'show_in_menu'=> 'edit.php?post_type=page',

    The same user can access the post type area. Any ideas for workaround? I’d really like to keep the custom menu as there are many custom post types.
