Possible to disable change user role on post listing


I’m using a member plugin and give my registered users user roles with custom names. As I’ve understood things vendors need the contributor capabilities for the functionality to work. Would it work to disable change user role when adding a listing if all my users already have contributor capabilities with their custom user roles they get when they register via my members plugin?

If yes, how is that achieved?

With best regards,



Unfortunately, there is no way to disable it. However, if the user has the role of contributor or higher, it will not be switched.

Hi andrii and thanks for the swift answer!

The solution for this is to download the plugin “User Role Editor” and add my custom user roles and grant them contributer capabilities. When doing that Hivepress won’t change their userroles to contributer.

Have a nice day!
