Allow editor role to edit privacy policy

September 7, 2018 · 15:21 · Dora D.

Currently by default only admin roles can edit privacy policy page.

Request: Modify feature

I don't feel editors should have the power to edit legal documents; this is admin territory in my mind.

I agree with Mike in that this shouldn't be a privilege available to every editor. However imagine a situation where the admin sets up and maintains the site for a client where the client needs to be able to edit their privacy policy without having full admin rights.
Perhaps the best solution would be to have this as its own capability, for example 'edit_privacy_policy'. It should by default be an admin-only ability. But if you wanted to you could easily add an above-editor-but-not-quite-admin user role and grant it that capability.
