Modifying the default permissions (3 posts)

    I want to modify the level's permissions. For example, I don't want people with levels 1-5 to "Publish" posts, or I don't want a level 7 user to be able to see or change the preferences, edit themes or plugins... How can I edit these permissions? Which files, and how, should I edit them?

    Thanks in advance...

    Most likely in wp-includes/functions-post.php. Search for user_levels in that file.

    Also, as a heads-up, the next version of WordPress will employ a different and more flexible set of permissions.

    Thanks Michael. (And I'm also glad to hear that permissions will be improved in the next version... :) )

    BTW, I just checked wp-include/function-post.php, and it seems like it only involves the posting permissions. Maybe I should check the wp-admin folder for the options/users stuff...
