Restrict Taxonomies

Description

Based on the Restrict Categories plugin, this plugin allows you to restrict the taxonomies terms that users or roles can use when they publish content. It also provide front end restriction for non logged users.

ToDo List

  1. Prevent the user from accessing the single view of a CPT that is in a disallowed taxonomy

Screenshots

  • The settings are located in Settings > Restrict Taxonomies
  • First choose the post types and the taxonomies to handle
  • Select the categories allowed for a role or a user (note that user options override role options)
  • Should the plugin restrict taxonomies in the front end ?

Installation

  1. Upload the restrict-taxonomies folder to to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure the plugin in Settings > Restrict Taxonomies
  4. Choose the taxonomies AND the corresponding post types
  5. Activate (or don’t, as you wish) the front end rescrictions

FAQ

Does this plugin also works for page taxonomies ?
Yes, the page post type will always be handled, therefore, it doesn’t appear in the post types and taxonomies settings

Reviews

Nice setup, but a bit buggy

This plugin seemed to be just what I needed. After messing around with too complicated membership plugins, this one is exactly right for my purposes. However, after installation my new settings were not saved. Then I read a workaround from anothe ruser: “you need first to click on “Reset config”. after that, plugin work as expected”. This worked. But then I found that the plugin didn’t behave as I expected. When I restrict a product to a certain user based on a product tag, it becomes the only visble product on the main shop page. That is good. But when I go to the category of that product, suddenly all products appear again. So they’re hidden on the main shop page, but are still visible on the category shop page. I fooled around with the settings, but I couldn’t get this right.

Plugin not working

Some php warning in log and plugin have no effect : when you click to “save settings” button, form was reseted and nothing was saved.

EDIT : The bug occur only on fresh install. To correct it, you need first to click on “Reset config”. after that, plugin work as expected

it works

it works for restricting categories. i don’t know about it restricting tags
