Allowing a user to edit a View

Editing a View requires a permission that is normally only assigned to Administrators. This is because Views allow users to display HTML, which is a capability that is restricted in WordPress.

The unfiltered_html permission must be granted to non-admins in order for them to edit a View. Please be aware that this permission should only be granted to trusted users who are in higher level roles.

Warning: The instructions below show how to add the capability to all users who have an existing role. It is safer to create a new role that has the unfiltered_html capability and add users to that role. Read how to do that here.

To allow non-administrators to edit Views:

1. Install and Activate the Members plugin:
