    Is there a way to limit a contributor's posting authority to specific categories?

    I believe the Role Manager plugin does this:

    There used to be a plugin (of the same author) - Limit Category; although not sure if it works with the latest WP.

    Nope, neither the role manager linked above, nor the follow-up at http://www.im-web-gefunden.de/wordpress-plugins/role-manager/ will do this.

    Acess by Category apparently will do so for versions up to 2.0 (maybe 2.1). No joy for anything newer.

    I'd be interested in this as well.

    I found one! Thank the stars! :)

    Level2Categories 2 does the job for 2.3+. You can specify a minimum user level for the users to be able to post into a category

    The interface is quite tiresome if you have 50+ categories like me, but it works. I have asked the developer if he/she will either set up a default minimum level or improve the interface.

    Uh, wait. Spoke too soon. I think it doesn't work properly if you have categories and native tags. Left a few comments on the creator's post - hopefully he'll let me know.

    the old fashioned usermeta/userextra plugins do this and still work in WP2+
