    Hello, i have tried to delete the "read" rights of the contributors, but they are still able to see others'comments and posts.

    1)What do the "read" rights are?
    2)How can I prevent "contributors" to see the comments that are left to somebody else's posts?

    Hello,

    1) 'read' right - is a right which allows ordinal site visitor to become your blog subscriber. Subscriber could see and edit his user profile at wordpress back-end and you as blog owner have his e-mail to send blog news, etc.

    2, 3) By default all published WordPress posts and comments are visible to all site visitors.

    There are other plugins which can add additional restrictions to the blog content.
    But what the sense if author will see his posts only? Do you plan to show such posts to somebody else? If not, what the purpose of such post publishing?

    2,3) I'd like to hide them in order to prevent some authors to see the drafts of other authors. I'd like the contributors to see only others'posts, only when they are already published.
