defining user roles to restrict read & write permissions (2 posts)

    I'm considering using WP for a (small) community site (<30 users),
    where users should have different capabilities depending on their
    roles. In particular, I'd like to have parts of the site readable
    only to a subgroup of users (some committees using their own
    forum within the site, say).
    Is that already possible ?

    Capabilities that I have found so far all revolved around writing /
    posting, or changing settings, but not reading. Also, I didn't find
    mention of custom roles to which I could assign page-specific capabilities.

    Any help is highly appreciated !

    For specific roles you'll need the Role Manager plugin.
