Support » Fixing WordPress » Adjust contributor capabilities to write, publish, but not edit

    My searches have come up with some responses, but I’m at a loss how to implement this.

    I’d like the contributor to be able to publish their post, but not be able to edit ANY post. This is for security purposes.

    Alternately, I could create a user that can write, publish posts but not manage anything?

    Is there anyone with experience hacking user capabilities and/or roles that knows how to go about this? Thank you!!

    Try the Role Manager plugin:

    Thank you, that is an excellent application:) However, is there any documentation on how to do this without a plugin?

    No, there isn’t, mainly because ou cannot without a plugin.
    More exactly, you probably could by editing core files – but I never advise doing it: first, because I don’t know what file to edit; secondly, because editing core files make every upgrade a nightmare.
