    On my website, I have a document management system that will show the edit history of a particular page. I would like to show, next to each user’s name, a small indicator if that person is an editor or admin, for example.

    Could this be done in any way, perhaps using ure_role_additional_options and add a CSS class on the user’s name?


    You need to change the template which outputs user’s name, add user’s roles there using a function like below. It returns the string of comma separated user roles by user ID:

    function get_user_roles($user_id) {
        $wp_roles = wp_roles();
        $user = get_user_by('id', $user_id);
        $roles = array();
        foreach ($user->roles as $role_id) {
            $roles[] = $wp_roles->role_names[$role_id];
        $roles_str = implode(', ', $roles);
        return $roles_str;

    thank you I will see what I can do with your suggestion
