[resolved] custom user levels (3 posts)

    Greetings,

    WordPress is almost the perfect media for my current project, with the exception of one thing:

    I need to have a user who is capable only of editing a post to which he was assigned ownership by admin. Said user cannot post new articles.

    I have searched plugins and the forums for other information about custom user levels, and so far I've come up empty-handed.

    I found some discussion, but alas my php is quite rudimentary and the development topics are beyond my current capacity to comprehend. I have looked at capabilities.php, but I can't find where the roles are really defined.

    It seems that I am limited to the 5 Roles defined in the code. I know that there is a variety of 'capabilities' that are assigned to the different roles, but those roles appear to be statically defined. Are there any plugins or features that allow a more granular control over user levels?

    Thank you,

    Darryl G.

    You need to search for the role-manager plugin mentioned here:

    I haven't played with this one myself yet, but plan to use it soon.

    Wow I swear I read that page about 10 times, looking for hints on where to find the plugin I was looking for. I will check it out - it sounds just like what I need.

    Regards,

    Darryl
