How to authorize contributors to make calendar post?

Unread post by optionzz » Fri May 09, 2014 6:51 pm

For most users, most of the time, they do NOT need to see the WordPress "Dashboard" so I route them to the home page. But this also seems to mean that they cannot post to your (very nice) calendar plugin. What am I missing? How can I let them add/update calendar entries, but not throw them into the (mostly incomprehensible) "Dashboard?"

Thanks!

Sorry if this has been answered before. I searched but could not find a good approach.

If they want to manage events they'll need to use the dashboard, there is no other way

Thanks...I was afraid of that. Makes it unusable for the majority of my group who are less than literate. I'll have to post for them via a simple form added to the end of the calendar unless I get energetic and dig into the php.

I appreciate your good work on the calendar; nice one.
