Limit specific users to post in specific categories? (7 posts)

    I am looking for suggestions on how to let specific users write new posts only in specific categories.

    For instance, if I have Joe logged in, I want Joe to only be able to post in Joe's Town category. Likewise, I might want Pete to only be able to post to Pete's Town, and so on.

    I am aware of the Limit Categories plugin - however, it seems as though that will only create limitations around user roles (editor, author, contributor, etc). I need specific user settings based on their login, not their role.

    Is this possible? Your advice is appreciated.

    Hey Dan, did you ever end up finding a solution to this? I'm looking for something similar that'll word with WP 2.3

    I don't think there is anything like that. Limit Cats doesn't even work with 2.3.1.
    And I can't remember any plugin that would limit users individually (i.e. not based on user groups).

    I need this as well. There is a plugin called "bind to category" but it does not work.

    Wow this works, but it is final if active. It affects all users and is automatic. It even takes away the category option from the admin:
