Built in Role Management

    WordPress should adopt a built in role management system like the famous Role Manager:

    That would make plugin developers consider role management as they create their plugins. For me as a blog admin, its very important to give only limited access to my authors, sometimes I find some good plugins that are not compatible with role management and that can be very frustrating.

    Completely agree, but that's more a CMS function request... ;P

    I see this more as plugin material. I can't imagine how many support queries there'd be if we gave average users control over permissions out of the box. Just imagine the 100s of users that'd lock themselves out of their sites. I'd rather see it as something that users willingly choose to install and are given a chance of understanding the risks.

    In future version, WordPress should integrate the following:

    Mutliple User Accounts
    Create multiple user accounts, each with their own login details and permissions.

    User Groups With Permissions
    Create multiple user groups, each with their own permissions right down to the item level.

    The flexible allow/deny logic makes it easy to create accounts for content contributors, managers and super users - in fact anyone in your organization who needs to contribute to your website in any way.

    All/Own/Specific Items
    User groups can be setup with flexible access types including full control, create new, delete, edit and approve.

    Workflow Approval System
    Content can be set to require approval before being published on the website. You can set some content types (such as press releases and staff profiles) to require approval and allow others (such as blog posts and videos) to be published immediately.

    Active/Inactive Users
    Easily disable a user account with one click from the control panel. Once disabled, the user will no longer be able to login and make changes to your website.

    Users in Multiple Groups
    A user can belong to multiple groups if required. In fact, a user can be in as many groups as required, simply by selecting the groups when you create/edit their profile.
