User ID's and Categories (3 posts)

    Is it possible to limit a single User ID to view only posts that exist within a category? For example, if I were to set up an ID called Sports, is there a way to grant them access to only Basketball, Football, and Baseball categories, but when they clicked on the category Work or Headlines News (or whatever), it would give them a permission error or redirect (or whatever)?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    No such functionality currently exists.

    The post level plugin resticts access on a per-post basis, not a per-category basis. Conceivably this plugin could tweaked to work on categories, instead.

    There is a Private Categories plugin - http://willwyatt.com/. After a minor modification, it seems to work fine in doing just what you want to do.
