FAQ

Does this plugin require any changes to roles?

No, it works with any account and any role.

Does this plugin allow users to create new posts?

No, you use the existing roles for those permissions. This plugin does not change any of the existing admin menus. E.g. a Subscriber who is allowed to edit a post does not see a Posts menu item in the wp-admin page, but will see an “Edit Post” on the admin header if it is visible.

Does this plugin restrict reading of pages or posts?

No, there are other plugins that provide that function. This plugin is just about restricting the ability to edit a page or post to a specific account.
