 Replying to [comment:2 johnbillion]:

 That doesn't seem to have resolved the problem. Still seeing PHP Notices

 The Codex must be incorrect then. The Codex demonstrates using those


 > Thanks for the ticket, @michael.ecklund.
 > I narrowed down the problem to the existence of three meta capabilities
 in your `capabilities` array:
 > {{{
 > $args['capabilities']['edit_post']   = 'edit_post';
 > $args['capabilities']['read_post']   = 'do_not_allow';
 > $args['capabilities']['delete_post'] = 'do_not_allow';
 > }}}
 > These are singular form meta capabilities, which shouldn't be defined in
 your capabilities array. They map to the `edit_posts`, `read_posts`, and
 `delete_posts` primitive capabilities respectively. If you remove these
 from your capabilities array, the functionality you're attempting to
 create appears to work as expected.
 > Let me know if this works for you.
