Great Plugin - Especially when using sister plugin (7 posts)

    I have a site where each editor has their own pages. By using this plugin I can restrict what they can do.

    Used in conjunction with the sister plugin to view only their own content, I have a workable system where editors cannot edit each others content or mine.

    When they login, they only see their own pages and media. Thank you for such an elegant solution.

    Is it work with Custom Post Type? How did you do to assign each editor to their own page?

    Hi. I am not familiar with the phrase Custom Post Type. I probably know it as something else, but have never used it.

    The plugin enables you to set permissions so Editors can only edit, not create or delete pages. I create the page as Admin, but set them as the owner (author).

    When they login, they can only see their own pages. If you use the sister plugin, they can only see their own media as well.

    The plugins can set or deny any permissions you choose and turns WP into a very useful multi-author type CMS. No need to have a separate installation for each Editor.

    Well worth installing and having a play to see what it can do. Do a full backup first and if you don't like it, restore the backup, or just delete the plugins.

    Thank you for your answer but I want to set permission so a Editor can only edit one page.

    I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are trying to do.

    The procedure is a two part process.

    Firstly, you use the plugin to give Editors permission to only "Edit pages" and not "Edit others pages".

    Secondly, you go to WP's native "Pages" menu and set the author of the page to that person.

    Now only that person or the admin can edit that page.

    If you do not make him the author of any other pages, then that will be the only one he can edit.

    Lopinsjk, I'd love to know how you resolved. I have a similar situation.

    Thanks
