Category Viewable depending on Role (6 posts)

    Does anyone know if there is a way or if a plugin has been created for restricting categories/pages being viewable based on the Role?

    I have role-manager installed, but I want some pages and categories to be viewable to certain Roles.

    Says it does what you need but I haven't tested it yet. Good luck. Let me know if it works.

    Well, it definitely seems to work for posts in categories (and well I might add, though I did get some errors with the role-manager plugin when moving roles around).

    However it doesn't seem to work for pages, just posts. Which I can work around, it'd just be nice if it worked for pages too :) It says it filters out pages from search results, but you can't assign categories to pages that I'm aware of, so I'm not sure how that works.

    Also forgot to mention, it appears if someone knows the URL to the post that should be hidden, they can still see the information. Which kinda defeats the purpose :/
