WP Post Limits


When running wordpress for short term projects, contests, etc. it can be useful to be able
to define a limit on the number of posts a given user can make. This plugin allows admins to
define limits on a per-role basis.

Say you wanted ‘authors’ to be limited to 5 posts and ‘contributors’ to just 1, this plugin is
the way to do it.

Please Note: This plugin is only tested on PHP5 and may not work on earlier versions.
