    I was reading the codex, and i saw this about Contributor account type:

    Contributor:
    -delete_posts
    -edit_posts
    -read

    Can the contributor delete and edit all posts on the website, or just those that they have written?

    Thanks in advance,

    Only their own posts. The capabilities to operate on other's posts have 'others' in the capability name, e.g. delete_others_posts.
