Post Levels


The Post-Levels plugin allows you to set a numeric “level” to each of your users, and then author posts that are only visible by users above that level.

Known Issues / Bugs

  • This plugin requires version 2.1 of WordPress. For version 2.0, see Version 1.0
  • Category listing will only be correct if you include post counts


  1. Deactivate the plugin
  2. That’s it! 🙂


  1. Copy the post-levels.php file into your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the ‘Users’ section of your admin area, then go to ‘User Levels’ and assign levels to your users.
  4. Make posts private when writing or editing by using the ‘Post Level’ drop down, and setting the ‘Post Status’ to ‘Private’


When is the FAQ going to be written?

Good question!

I’ve found a bug, how can I tell you about it so you’ll fix it for me?

Go to and fill out the contact form. Make sure you let me know the following:

  • What version of WordPress you’re using
  • What other plugins you’re running
  • What your permalink structure is
  • Exactly what problem you’re seeing

Unfortunately, I do have a life outside of this plugin, so don’t be sad if I don’t fix the bug within 5 minutes.
