Support » Fixing WordPress » Groups so only certain users can see category X?

  • I’d like to set up a category so that only certain users can see posts in that category. I’m familiar with password-protecting entries, but that’s not what I want. I’d like to setup a category and if you are not logged in as a user who’s been given permission to see that category (or in a group, which I don’t think WP has), then those posts never show up for you.

    Is this possible? I found this article in the forum:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/14428?replies=1

    But the page it links to doesn’t exist.

    Help? Thanks.

    Try this:

    Not really what I’m looking for…I want to limit a category to only certain users, not just subscribers. If you’re not in that user list, the category’s posts never show up for you.

    Another options? There is a plug-in called “Category Access” but it is not maintained and the site it’s linked to doesn’t offer it any more.

    Don’t get mislead by the name.
    You want certain registered members to read certain categories.
    As it is said on the plugin’s page: combine this plugin with the Role Manager plugin and you will have more than you hoped.
    I know it works because I use it, and if you dind’t try it don’t tell me it’s not what you are looking for.

    OK, sorry for my ignorance…I’ll give it a try. Thanks for the pointer.

    D’oh! Downloads are offline while he works on the plugin. Oh well, I sent him some cash, so maybe he’ll slip me a zip of the last version he released…

    Josh, thanks for the donation. I didn’t know you sent anything as my email has been sporadic due to problems at my chosen hosting company. I’ve also been sick for nearly a week. Just started feeling all right today. So I’ll get the plugin finished up soon! I already added support for WP 1.5 and some other goodies — plus some bug fixes!
