Grant read-only permission for selected users (with no administrator role) on selected private posts.
Have you ever wanted to create separate section for different kind of users?
This plugin will enable you to
Create Reading Groups, associate users and private posts with one or multiple groups
Once these users logged in they will see those private posts which you granted access
Publish your post to public as usual
Your users will not be aware (unless you tell them) of what Reading Groups they are part of (if any).
I have to admit that there are other plugins out there which let you setup your WordPress site like this, but this Plugin is way much simpler to setup and use than general purpose robust permission management systems.
For example you create Friends and Family Reading Groups. Then you create some users (Mom, Dad, John, Nancy) and assign these Reading Groups as follows: Friends: John, Nancy Family: Mom, Dad
When you move to London you write posts about it:
and you attach some nice pics about the city - you publish this post to general public (no magic, do it as usual)
and you attach some nice pics about the flat you just rented - you want to grant access to your Friends and Family only (so you publish this post privately and check the Friends and Family Reading Group checkboxes)
including your address – you don’t want to tell your address to anyone so you want to grant access to your Family only (so you publish it privately and check the Family Reading Group checkbox only)
As a result
Mom and Dad will have access to all 3 posts (about the city, the flat you rented and your address) after they logged in
John and Nancy will be able to read your posts about the city and the flat you rented when they are logged in
All your other friends will see your post about the city
That is it.
