Restrict access per user (pages or categories) in admin panel (5 posts)

    Hi, I'm looking for a way to restrict certain access to certain users. Like role manager, only to make it impossible for some authors to edit eachothers posts. Is there an easy way to accomplish this? - I checked out the user extra plugin (http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/Userextra) but it didn't make much sense to me once I installed it -. Any suggestions? Thnx a million :)

    You can limit the access based on
    role and categories with this plugin:

    However, I can't remember any solution to limit user's access on different Pages. It is either all Pages or none, for example using the Role Manager plugin.

    Allright, thanx anyway. I didn't know of the limit categories plugin yet. Maybe I can find a way to 'hack' around it somehow or add a limit pages function. In an earlier topic I saw you referring to this plugin:
    http://trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/2301/restrict_pages.php

    I'll have a look at that well.

    I'm in need of this functionality too, which for a multi-user system should be a reasonable thing to aim for 'out of the box'!

    I only wish I had the abilities to help make it happen....

    What I'd like is the following:
    1) Ability to restrict users to a given category (categories) and their sub categories (optional)
    2) The ability to restrict what users can do with pages
    3) To be able to define classes of uses with certain restrictions (e.g. define a class of users as 'The Simpsons' and have them unable to post in 'The Flanders' category).
    4) The ability to restict users to editing a particular page (and to create new pages with that page as a parent, or more distant ancestor).
    5) All the while maintaining authoring/publishing roles, with a 'submit for publishing' button for editors, which emails the relevant person/people with 'publish' permissions!

    exactly, as of yet I haven't found a solution for it still. I've found plugins that will route certain users to certain pages, but still make it possible for them to edit others. The only thing that comes close sofar is the restrict-pages plugin above but that isn't sufficient by far. I might extend it if I have some more time... Any suggestions for workarounds or other plugins that might help with this?
