My plugin will help you to add restriction category to User profile, so the author or editor can post in just specific categories.
* New Update: If user is restricted to a category, the first one in the list will be chosen as a default for that user if he didn’t chose the category he wants to publish in ( thanks to ash for this bug ). AND delete Category no longer show an error in User’s Profile !
* New Update: Include a new function to restrict author using media file ( image/video ), just a checkbox in User Profile, you can restrict Author using all media file or just his/her own file !
Just a small code, and run in Admin Screen so it’ll never slow down your website !

The plugin does not work properly, it’s only possible to add the limitations to create a new post, however the user can still edit any post.
very nice plugin and simple in aplication but it does not work on front end post entry like “social articles” in buddypress profile page. Are there any modifications i need to make to work for it? thanks and keep up the good work, excellent product
Faz exatamente o que promete: restringe as categorias em que um autor pode postar.
Particularmente, estava procurando um plugin que limitasse as categorias que um editor pode editar. Ao usar o plugin com um usuário editor, ele tem as categorias em que pode escrever restringidas, mas continua podendo editar qualquer post do site, tanto pelo frontend quanto pelo backend.
Para mim não serviu, mas não deixa de ser um ótimo plugin.
could you display disable select in post the categori…?
This plugin is very good and does what it says. You can easily restrict authors to a single category or more.
The author can view all posts in all categories but can not edit them except within the categories he has access to.
like the plugin and it does what it’s supposed to in the browser. But sadly it doesn’t work with the app. There, the user still has access to all categories. I’m not sure if you can fix that but for me personally it’s not so important. Thanks.
