    Hi all,
    I need set different default categories to different users.
    It means that a single user is only allowed to add new post to a specified category. he\she can only read other post under different categories. when she\he adding post , the particular post should come under the category which he\she give rights.

    I tried plugin bind-user-to-cat. but it didn't give me the results which i expected.

    please help..
    thank you.

    The only plugin I know of that does this is "bind user to category." You don't say what results you didn't expect, but I can say from experience that it only allows the author to write to the category in which you name, but it doesn't restrict them from seeing anyone else's stuff. They can't *edit* it, but they can see it.

    Of course, I also used this plugin with Role Scoper - which allowed me to set it so that people could only edit their own posts - again it doesn't prevent them from seeing others' posts, but they can't edit or publish them. But other than that, it works fine.
