Perch Events - editor role cannot add events


I have a client calling me on the weekend, because they no longer can add new Events. In my testing just now, only admins can add new events in the Perch UI.

Events 1.9.5 Perch: 3.0.10

Before updating perch to v 3 recently and also inline with that, events, all was fine...

I have tried the 'manual update' to see if that helps, but no joy: when logged in as the 'Editor' role, the 'Add Event' button does not show at the top right of the Perch UI.

Any speedy tips or an update to the Perch / Events codebase would be appreciated.

Note, I just added 'content' and 'categories' to apps.php but to no avail.

Have a search through the forum - others have had similar issues.

Here’s one example:

Yes, it's a known issue.

This is from the other linked thread on this issue.

Drew McLellan said:

define('PERCH_PRIV_ASSIST', true);

Then visit the page in the control panel where the button should be. That should trigger the privilege to be added.

Log back in as the admin and enable the new privilege for the roles that should have it.
