Lock Pages

Lock Pages prevents specified pages (or all pages), posts, or custom post types from having their slug, parent, status or password edited, or from bei

Who can move, delete, etc. a page once it's locked?

The definition of who is able to move or delete locked pages is made via a plugin setting that specifies a capability. This also defines who can edit the plugin's settings, and who can lock individual pages. Be careful not to bar yourself!

It defaults to manage_options, which by default is only granted to the Administrator role, but it can be changed. You will get a warning if you enter a capability that doesn't exist in your system.

Lock Pages will work with Justin Tadlock's Members plugin, if it's installed, to respect any custom capabilities you may have entered.

Does the locking work with Quick Edit as well?

No. I'm having problems getting this working properly. Until then, sadly, I've had to remove the Quick Edit link from locked pages for users who are barred from changing locked page attributes. Sorry! They can still edit other things with the normal edit screen.

What's the donate link about?

I feel I gain more than enough already from the WordPress community in monetary terms, through the work it lets me do and the services it lets me offer. For me, part of writing a plugin is precisely to give back to the community - so it seems odd to ask for money for a small plugin (even if it's not obligatory).

Still, I know that sometimes a plugin really makes your day and you want to give back in turn. If this plugin tickles you and you feel like giving, I've given the link to donate to Corporate Watch, who perform what I think is a hugely important role in holding large corporations to account.

Of course, contributing back to the WordPress community is also a great way to express gratitude for a plugin!
