Making Sidebar Content Optional Based on Role (1 post)

    I'm a WordPress newbie so please excuse my obvious lack of knowledge...

    I was hoping someone could provide advice on what is the best method of achiveing the following outcome;

    A sidebar widget that presents the following content based on a users role...

    So a editor would see the following options in the sidebar;

    Edit Profile
    Draft New Article
    Review Article
    Favourite Articles
    Print Article

    A contributor would see the following options in the sidebar;

    Edit Profile
    Draft New Article
    Favourite Articles
    Print Article

    And a subscriber would see the following options in the sidebar;

    Edit Profile
    Favourite Articles
    Print Article

    Are there standand WordPress functions to filter sidebar content based on a role or do I need to use a community plugin???

    Thanks,

    Sean.
