[resolved] User Role modification (3 posts)

    I'm looking for a plugin that will allow me to modify what options users will have access to. I want to be able to restrict them from say Pages, Themes, etc for certain groups and other things for other people.

    Apples and oranges. :-)

    Changing the "role" of a user implies, in WP parlance, to give or restrict access to certain capabilities (enter a new post, publish it, check comments for spam, activate plugins, etc.) What you seem to be looking for is an access management plugin - there are several very good ones out there - that allow you to control who gets to access which content. If you look for "membership" plugins you'll quickly see what I mean. There's an absolutely fabulous plugin by Justin Tadlock, called (if I remember correctly) "Members" that should also be in the WP plugin repository.

    It has tons of options, it's "free" (free to use and free as in free beer) and its author deserves a lot of kudos for putting such a great plugin out there. You really want to try that one.

    Good luck.
