    I use Role Manager plugin. Is there some plugin that could restrict access to categories based on user permissions / user role? There are many 'almost-fit' plugins, but no one of them could make such access list based on 'groups' user belongs, not per-user.

    I'll list here those i found:
    'Category Visibility'
    'Post Restrictions'
    'Page Restriction'
    'Subscribers-only'
    'ViewLevel 2.0'
    'Limit Categories'
    'Private Categories'
    'UserExtra'

    Some I missed? Already thinking about write yet another such beast..

    BTW, AFAIC figure, such plugin (with some additional features or another plugins) could easily fulfill "WordPress-based Forum" niche -- most needed functionality WP has already, only few pieces is missing.

    Limit Categories actually does exactly what you are asking for: limiting the posting access for groups/roles.

    Forum? With WP? Who needs that, and most importantly who wants that??? Use htpp://bbpress.org

    Yes, 'Limit Categories' works. Thanks for pointing me, i don'run it by myself, and description in code of plugin says only about user levels, not roles.

    But it's not ideal: it could not create custom 'capability' to write or read specific category. Imagine that i have 2 categories: to manage access to them I must have 4 Roles (yes-no, no-yes, no-no and yes-yes). Next imagine that there are more categories..

    Standart WP interface don't let you select simultaneously 2 roles for one user (AFAIC WP core is ready for such sheme).

    Some other plugins?
