Pages/Categories/Posts Viewable Per User Level

    I'd like pages and categories visible by user level. For example only logged in Admins can see a page called "Stats" in the pages menu, or only logged in Subscribers can see the "Subscribers Only" category. There might be plugins that do parts of these things, but I'd like to see it in the core, I think it's necessary to extend the reason why the user levels are there to begin with. Anyone?

    Agree with categories (and posts in it) visible for registered / special users. With such feature it would be possible to make company blog with some posts available to everyone, some to registered users and some to company partners only.

    Hi,

    I would be interested in such a feature as well. It would be nice to be able to set up user groups like 'Donators' and allow them to view additional content which other users can't see. Or maybe even completely different content.

    Regards,

    Stefaan

    Extend it so the admin can set who can post in which category on a per user and per userole base. This will make team blogging more feasible.

    Our organization is using the "Category Visibility" plugin to make some categories visible to accredited members only, and some categories visible to the organizations officials only, and one category for blog admins. This works reasonably well, but there are problems as well: We need to use the "Event Calendar 3" plugin, and as the category visibility feature is not a built-in feature of WP, the EventCalendar does not use it. So, we have an information leak ;) Having proper read/access controll built-in would be VERY welcome.

    Please extend the "category visibility per user level" to static pages, too.

    ps. We also need more user levels - especially various READER LEVELS (public, member, inner circle, admin msgs). The RoleManager plugin is wonderfull for that purpose...

    I've tried several plugins that are meant to do this kind of thing, but I'm always disappointed by the implementation. I need something like this so everyone can read in one place, but not everyone can read everything (or at least, make some posts/categories invisible to search engines).

    Ultimately I want to be able to say that category A is only visible by logged-in users, category B is only visible to people I nominate as authorised (assuming they are logged in), and category C is visible/readable by all logged-in users but can only be commented on by people I authorise (not necessarily the same people for category B).

    Theoretical categories A, B and C have to be able to be mixed with other general categories, and still work. The priority has to be given to A, B, C to determine handling. I guess I need a plugin that allows me to prioritise the behaviour of categories of posts AND groups of users. I also need to be able to specify what each user-level is capable of. Some people should never be allowed to use html in their comments, for example...

    yup, i think it's a great idea. currently i'm using David Coppit's Category Access plugin. but occasionally when new upgrades come along, i always have the fear that the plugin would cease to function properly.

    it'd be great if such a feature could be implemented as part of the core. (=
