Resolve permission error with Multi-Category Dropdown WordPress

  • SOLVED

Recently [[LINK href="http://wpquestions.com/user/profile/id/4312"]]Jurre Hanema[[/LINK]] created a plugin for me on this [[LINK href="http://wpquestions.com/question/show/id/2799"]]question[[/LINK]]. I've since found that it only works when a user is logged in. When not logged in it shows the message<blockquote>no categories found</blockquote> This is caused by the plugin "[[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/role-scoper/"]]Role Scoper[[/LINK]]"

I'm itchy to get this live for my customers, any help would be appreciated. You can find information for the download and implementation in the thread below Jurre Hanema.

I modified the plugin by Jurre Hanema (fixed the conflict with "Role Scoper" by removing ajax function and use javascript only)
download it here http://bit.ly/nAy5pk


Zach Shallbetter comments:

Resolved the categories appearing but when selecting the category it redirects back to the main page instead of the category page.


Hai Bui comments:

Where does the form submit to? Can you post the whole page code?


Hai Bui comments:

hang on...


Zach Shallbetter comments:

Originally we were using
<form action="http://www.openeye.net/" method="get">
<?php
if(function_exists('mcd_print_dropdowns')) mcd_print_dropdowns();
?>
</form>


Hai Bui comments:

I fixed it, please download it again http://bit.ly/nAy5pk


Zach Shallbetter comments:

Ugh still redirecting, I wonder if something else is occurring with Role Scoper.


Hai Bui comments:

hmm... can you send me the url? either here or to [email protected]

Doesn't seem to work at all now even when Role Scoper is disabled.

Romel Apuya answers:

I bet the ajax isnt localized.

change your function mcd_print_scripts to this one :

function mcd_print_scripts()
{
?>
<script type="text/javascript">var mcd_ajax_url = "<?php wp_localize_script('mcd-script_json_config', 'mcd-script_config', array('ajaxurl' => admin_url('admin-ajax.php'),)); ?>";
</script>
<style type="text/css">#mcd_child { display: none; }</style>
<?php
}
?>


if not working you can have a better reference in [[LINK href="http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/3610/how-to-manage-ajax-calls-and-json-in-wordpress"]]here [[/LINK]]


Zach Shallbetter comments:

That's exactly what I thought first but it didn't seem to resolve the issue. In fact, when I change mcd_print_scripts it no longer shows the second drop-down.


Romel Apuya comments:

how about changing the two functions.

function mcd_enqueue_scripts()
{
wp_enqueue_script('mcd-script', plugins_url('multcatdropdown/mcd.js'), array('jquery'));
wp_localize_script('mcd-script', 'mcd-script_config', array('ajaxurl' => admin_url('admin-ajax.php'),));
}


function mcd_print_scripts()
{
?>
<style type="text/css">#mcd_child { display: none; }</style>
<?php
}

?>


Romel Apuya comments:

and changing

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mcd_enqueue_scripts');
to

add_action('wp_head', 'mcd_enqueue_scripts');


Zach Shallbetter comments:

Still nothing it no longer loads the second category list when logged in or out.


Romel Apuya comments:

can you post the link to your website?


Zach Shallbetter comments:

it's [[LINK href="http://www.openeye.net"]]http://www.openeye.net [[/LINK]] The site that I'm applying this plugin to is in development. If you send me a direct message with your information I can get you access.

ej_emman answers:

is this just happen after you activate the role plugin?


Zach Shallbetter comments:

Yeah, Role Scoper is embedded pretty heavily into the site. When I disable it I'm able to use the multi-category plugin without logging in. Otherwise I need to be logged in.


ej_emman comments:

have you try to unrestrict the post reader on role plugin restriction page?


ej_emman comments:

Zach Shallbetter comments:

Which page is that? I'm not seeing it here.


ej_emman comments:

just follow the screenshot on my attachment.....
