This free ClassicPress plugin allows administrators to allocate multiple roles to users.
The capabilities of a user with more than one role will be a combination of all the capabilities of the roles they have.
The plugin takes advantage of the fact that internally, ClassicPress and WordPress support multiple roles per user, they just don’t provide for it in the admin UI. ZP Multiple Roles provides the missing UI components.
It has many uses. One example is a site with two important plugins, both of which create custom roles for users to manage their operation. Now you can use the same user account for both functions.
