    I would like the "Categories" option to not appear for Authors; in other words I would like them to have only the option of using tags when composing and publishing their posts.

    Any help on how to do this would be appreciated.

    Here is the solution that i have found . Go to your file manager and find meta-boxes.php in the location /wp-admin/includes/ inside your wordpress installed directory.You will find these functions function post_format_meta_box( $post, $box ) and function post_categories_meta_box( $post, $box ) . You can either comment these functions or you can override these functions. However, it may affect future WordPress Upgrades.
