Here’s what I did:

Created a Role called “Volunteer”
Added a Field Set called “Volunteer Fields” – under Capabilities, I left it as “edit_posts.”
Added some Fields – under Capabilities, I left it as “None (Same as Field Set)”
Used “Import Users from CSV” plug-in to import 800 users, including custom field values. It worked great.

I am successfully reading these user custom fields values on the front end (using Masterpress functions), and they appear in the WordPress “Edit User” Page too.

However, when I try to change them on the “Edit User” page, none of my changes to the custom fields stick. I click “Update User,” and the page reloads, but all of the custom fields have reverted to their original values. Changes to the core fields like First Name, Last Name, Website, etc. DO stick.

I also tried adding a new Volunteer through the WordPress “Add New User” page – I was able to add them, but when I tried to add values to the custom fields, they wouldn’t stay. So it’s not isolated to the imported users.

I tried deactivating all the Non-Masterpress plug-ins too – no change.

I am logged in as an Administrator, and checked capabilities, every single capability is checked for Administrators.

This was resolved by updating to latest version of Masterpress (1.0.1). Thanks!

Latest From the Blog

MasterPress 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the hosted service.
