Support » Plugin: Page Security & Membership » Ability to filter categories in Categories widget based on permissions?

  • Hi Matt,

    First off, great plugin! Does (almost) everything I need. I am using it to create groups, restrict the pages based on those groups, and restrict posts that users can see based on category.

    The only snag I have run into is I use the “Categories” widget in the right rail of my theme and the plugin doesn’t restrict visibility of the categories that a group doesn’t have access to. If they try to view the posts, they get an error, but I’d prefer that they don’t see the categories that they don’t have permission to access.

    As an example, I have two groups and three categories:

    GroupA – has access to category1 and category2
    GroupB – has access to category2 and category3

    When someone in GroupA logs in, they see all the categories in the “Categories” widget. If they try to click on category3, they get an error because they don’t have access.

    Is there a way to restrict that view? Let me know if this doesn’t make sense.

    Any thoughts here?

    I am also interested in the answer to this. I am restricting access to certain categories for non-members. The restricted categories still show up as an option in the menu widget (the content is hidden, which is good) and I would like that to be hidden. Any luck figuring this out?
