Allow or Disallow Subscriber Auctions

WP Auctions v5.0 added the ability to allow your Subscribers to host auctions on your site. This feature is turned on by default and understandably you, as an admin, may not want to offer that feature to your users.

No problem.

Here’s a step by step process to amend this:

  1. Install this plugin: User Role Editor
  2. Go to the Users > User Role Editor admin panel and select the Subscriber role to edit.
  3. Scroll down to see the “Custom capabilities” and you will notice a checkbox that states ‘create_auction‘.
  4. You can select or deselect this checkbox depending on whether or not you want to allow your users to host auctions on your site.

Here’s a screenshot of what it looks like –

Hope that helps you get set up with the plugin faster while not needing a feature right away.
