    How can I edit the capabilties of the "Contributor" or remove the "manage" option in their dashboard?
    Thanks.

    Yay! Thank you! I'll just ramble on over there and download it and give it a shot!

    just an fyi. Owen informs me that the plugin hasn't been officially released yet. When I installed it, I got some database errors, so it's probably not ready. Oh well, at least there's something in the works. Thanks!

    Hmm. I've got it running pretty on 3 sites now (one I wouldn't have gone live with without it!). But I'm sure Owen is on the case to get it all neat and shiny for all.

    Guess it's something I'm doing then. Back to the drawing board..

    Note that 1.3 of Role Manager is now up. Owen makes it official here:

    thanks kaf. The new one works great.
    Unfortunately, it appears that the default settings for "read" still allow contributors to manage/comments and therefore still see email addresses and IP addresses.

    drawing board part 2. Do you think you could help me with this? I know a lot of forum users have asked to be able to hide email addresses and IP's.

    ok, I've come up with a solution. I'm going to write a new post so others can do this as well. And then I'll come back here and link to it.
    UPDATE added link
    Here's a link to what I came up with.
    Hope it helps someone.
