Press Permit Core

Advanced yet accessible content permissions. Give users or groups type-specific roles. Enable or block access for specific posts or terms.

Press Permit is an advanced content permissions system. It is derived from Role Scoper, but with extensive improvements in versatility, performance and user-friendliness.

Core Features include:

  • New "Roles and Exceptions" model is closely integrated with the WP capability system
  • Assign supplemental roles and exceptions for custom post types

  • For any user, group or WP role, customize reading access by specifying "also these", "not these" or "only these" posts or terms.

  • Control reading access to specified categories

  • Post and term edit screens get a straightforward and uncluttered UI to "enable" or "block" users, roles or groups

  • Permission Groups integrate with Eyes Only User Access Shortcodes for conditional display of content blocks within a post
