    Hey,

    I have a user whom I want to set to Author level so that they can write, publish and delete Posts only and not have any control over Pages or any other settings. I set them up as Author and edited the Role Capabilities for Author to have these permissions, yet when I login as this user, it says “Cheatin’ uh? Sorry, you are not allowed to access this site.”

    Here are the capabilities I have set:
    Editing/Deletion/Reading capabilities for Posts
    Manage capabilities for categories and tags

    In Other WordPress Core Capabilities:
    Manage links, Moderate Comments, Read, Unfiltered HTML, Upload Files

    Additional Capabilities:
    copy posts, create posts, wpseo bulk edit

    Under groups, I see “[WP Author]” which this person is a user of and there’s no supplemental roles or exceptions set up.

    Thanks!
    Matt
