How to allow a user to add categories but not to remove them (1 post)

    Hello there,

    I'm writing from Italy and I'm new to WordPress, so please excuse me if this question is trivial, I searched through these forums but I was not able to find anything useful to me for this issue.

    I'm setting up a blog where all registered users should be able to create posts (i.e. Authors role), and to add new categories, but I would not like them to be able to remove existing categories (maybe created by other users), only Administrators should to this.

    I also installed "Role Scoper" plugin to see if it matches my needs, but it seems it can't, maybe I'm wrong.

    How can I achieve this goal? Is it possible to use an existing plugin or do I have to write a custom one? Or do I have to hack WordPress code itself? If so, may you please me point at the right part?

    Many many thanks for your kind reply,

    Matteo.
