[Plugin: Bind user to category] Half works on 3.2 beta (5 posts)

    Yes it binds a user (author) to a category when they post. Problem is it allows user to 'think' they can set any category, because the cat selectors are still available ans checkable in the post screen

    "Restricted users won't view the category selection panel in edit screens". is Not True

    You can hide it for the user manually as a quick fix. Log in as that user, and click Screen Options at the top - then just uncheck the 'categories' checkbox.

    It's what I've done - does the job for now I guess.

    Ok, that's a neat solution ... for now. Thanks for the comment.

    I was looking for a similar solution to this plugin. I had researched making my own, but found that editing the admin page to remove, replace or modify the category display in the post edit window is harder than it seems. (No filters or hooks in the code.)

    In 3.0, one can use the get_terms filter to modify the categories of a post. (Described here: http://soulsizzle.com/wordpress/filtering-wordpress-categories-using-an-undocumented-hook )

    I've found this advice, which really only moves the menu item for the plugin to the USERS menu.

    This plugin sets it so that each user can be constrained to a specific category. I'd like to make it so that each user will have their posts assigned to a specific category in addition to whatever they set their category to. Nothing in this plugin (or the code in the forums) will hide the category box in the edit page under 3.0

    Bind user to Category is just what I need. It does what it is supposed to do but in WP 3 it make a mess of the file/image upload window and also the next-gen gallery does not respond well.

    Is there someone that can fix this... I'm no programmer but the plugin has only two files.... :)

    Thanks in advantage
