Do you want to allow contributors to upload images without providing them with the ability to delete other images in WordPress? Follow our instructions to allow image uploads for contributors.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

<?php
//allow contributor to add photos
if ( current_user_can('contributor') && !current_user_can('upload_files') ) {
    add_action('admin_init', 'allow_contributor_uploads');
    function allow_contributor_uploads() {
        $contributor = get_role('contributor');
	$contributor->add_cap('upload_files');
    }
}
?>
