Assigning user with custom role as author to posts in WordPress

If you have a user with custom role (read this post about roles and capabilities), you will not able to assign it as author to a post. This is due to a WordPress bug.

For now, there’s a workaround: add level_1 capability to your custom role.

Method 1

add_role('custom_role', 'Custom Role', array(
    'level_1' => true
    ...
    )
);

Method 2

$role = get_role('custom_role');
$role->add_cap('level_1');

Notice: if you already had users in your Wordpres, to take effect you need to temporary change user’s role to another role, save and then back to your custom role.
