would love these features.
Would be very very useful.
Roles are great, but the workflow is hardly optimal when there isn't a method for alerting editors that there are posts awaiting approval. We need a proper post approval queue that sends an e-mail alert to all registered editors. In addition, it would be oh, so wonderful if, once a post has been approved, the system could track which editor approved the post.
One thing to add to user permissions is a "limited" member user option. That way I could create a single login/password for a group to access semi-private content (such as press photos of a product). This is content that I don't want freely available to the public over the web, but creating user-by-user permissions is to unwieldy. A single username/password that I can mail to users in a group would suffice to give them access to the site w/out creating their own logins.
This could be solved by having an area of my blog (or an entire blog) that's accessed by a shared password and login. Users can not change the login or password, and don't have permission to change anything.
I know there's the chance that users could leak login info, and that this isn't the strongest security system, but there ARE types of content that benefit from being SLIGHTLY more secure than wide-open web, but are easier to get to than requiring customized login for each user.
We have about 15 folks that need access to content that doesn't belong to the rest of the free web. It would be great to have more CMS-Like access control...
I'm wondering if we can do this to work with bbpress as well, given that they're integrated. But I guess this is more a bbpress issue.
I'm willing to start development on this if there's isn't already. Anyone else up for it?
Thumbs up for this idea!
The most important thing to me is that I can make pages and posts visible just to certain custom groups.
I love WP to death, really, but to me it's worthless without this feature. I have a tiny private blog with some dozens of registered users and I also want to write about things that are nothing to the rest of the internet.
Since I've installed WordPress for the first time (I think it was in 2005), I've been using different plugins for this. I had to change the plugins and adjust all the protected entries (!) at least with every big WP update because the plugin wasn't supported any longer or buggy.
There are two really good plugins who do the job, Disclose Secrets and Role Scoper:
I had to abandon DS when I updated from WP 2.1.1 to 2.6 since the plugin has not been updated for a quite long time.
I'm using Role Scoper now... as long at it is updated or until this feature is part of the WP core.
Livejournal which has just a fraction of WP's features can do this and also every bulletin board software I know.
Please, make this function part of the core!
Reliable way to manage roles/groups for WP is in a great demand.
What about integrating the WordPress Role Manager plugin?
The more I use WordPress the more often the issue of user management pops up.
I run a web design firm and we often use WordPress as a content management system for our clients. Unfortunately the user management is not strong enough and we're always forced to install the Role Manager plugin, which, whilst improving the situation a lot, does not completely solve the issues that we encounter.
I really would love to see big improvements in this area in coming versions.
