    Hi, I would like to set some Categories not available for certain Roles. E.g. Authors cannot insert posts in some Categories that are available to Editors and Admins, and can post only in certain categories.
    The Authors will see in their Insert/Edit Post pages only the Categories in which they can post.

    That's actually a good idea for grown-up blogging software. We should be nicer to multiple-user configurations.

    I think this feature is essential for such a big blog! I really hope this will be implemented soon!

    Although I can see a need to people able to post in different categories

    (e.g. you're an editor HERE and a publisher THERE, whereas Jim is a publisher HERE and has no rights at all THERE).

    Ideally, it'd be possible to define groups of users with certain rights and publish to those groups.

  5. Hi guys,
    I wrote a plugin for wordpress 2.0 some time ago (2006-01-27). It uses the RoleManager as base and then you can set viewing rights for categories and users.
    Enjoy

    I think I will adapt it today to work with 2.3

    Regards

    Yes, that would be ideal for what I need.

    ManuelBlechshmidt, thanks for the heads up on the Plugin that is very helpful.

    I agree that this functionality is something that a lot of users would love. I'm in a band that would love to grant access to to posts for just privet band related stuff (Music stores, Directions to gigs, contact info), Stuff for Fan Club Members (everything but Band 'privet' stuff), and stuff for general views of the site (everything but the first two listings). Yes this can be done with plugins like roll manager and the like, but it would be nice to see this kind of content separation based on user groups as a core of the WP Platform.
