Allow non-admin to Add xAPI Content

If you want to decide whom to allow adding xAPI Content.  You can add the following code to your theme's functions.php file.

And then, use a plugin like User Role Editor, to assign related custom capabilities.  


// GrassBlade xAPI
add_filter("gb_xapi_content_post_args", "custom_gb_xapi_content_post_args");
function custom_gb_xapi_content_post_args($cpt_args)
$cpt_args['publicly_queryable'] = false;
$cpt_args['show_in_nav_menus'] = false;
$cpt_args['show_in_menu'] = false;
$cpt_args['capability_type'] = 'xapi';
$cpt_args['capabilities'] = array(
'edit_post' => 'edit_xapi',
'read_post' => 'read_xapi',
'delete_post' => 'delete_xapi',
'edit_posts' => 'edit_xapis',
'edit_others_posts' => 'edit_others_xapis',
'publish_posts' => 'publish_xapis',
'read_private_posts' => 'read_private_xapis',
return $cpt_args;

add_filter("learndash_submenu", "custom_grassblade_learndash_admin_tabs");
function custom_grassblade_learndash_admin_tabs($admin_tabs)
if (current_user_can('edit_xapis')) {
$admin_tabs['grassblade']["name"] = __('xAPI Content', "grassblade");
} else {
return $admin_tabs;

    Hi Pankaj,

    There seems to be an issue with this code. When adding, it removes the xAPI Content menu item from Administrators even though they have the edit_xapi capability.

    Similarly adding the edit_xapi capability to a custom role, the xAPI Content menu doesn't show for that user.

    So it seems the code is thinking that the capability is not present and unsetting the admin_tab or isn't able to assign the admin_tab

    I was having same problem but resolved...

    Using above code it's just create "xAPI Content" in submenu but has no access. I also tried user role plugins to achieve access but did not work.

    so at last i have gone through the code of plugin "instructor-role" which i have used to create new instructor role and found solution to access "xAPI Content".

    It is in root file "instructor.php" around line no. 55 where it says,

    // array of all custom post types of LD posts.

    i have added there 'gb_xapi_content' and it works for me for the non-admin instructor role.
