How to limit author to a specific category? (10 posts)

    I read posts in the forum regarding this topic. Ultimately, the thread I was reading suggested using Role-Manger and Limit Cat plugins. I downloaded the Role-Manager plugin. There is very little documentation and none I could find on redalt.com's website.

    On redalts website, I select WP-Plugins.org Interface and then type in Role-Manager into the search box and get 10+ plugins--but no Role Manager.

    The zip I downloaded contains this text file: %c3%a9-%c3%a9%c2%a6%c3%a9%c2%af%c3%a9+%c3%a9%c2%bf%c3%b4%c2%a6%c3%a9%c2%a6%c3%a9%c2%a1%c3%a9+%c3%a9%c2%a6%c3%a9%c3%b3.txt. This file appears to be corrupted.

    Role Manager appears to install in the root of the plugin directory? Is this correct? Or should this plugin be installed in a plugin directory titled RoleManager?

    Can anyone assist with some basic install instructions? Thank you.

    Download page for the Role Manager:
    http://redalt.com/Resources/Plugins/Role+Manager

    and this is for Limit Categories:
    http://redalt.com/Resources/Plugins/Limit+Categories

    You are right: the Role Manager plugin should install its own folder - /wp-content/plugins/role-manager/

    Not sure about that one Limit Cats download rudolf45, does that work with 2.1? I played it safe, and grabbed this guy's "Fixed" version of it:

    Thanks for that - I don't use it, just had the download page in my bookmarks :)

    I'm running WP 2.1.3 and when I use the patched version of Limit Categories, any page that edits / creates new posts fails to load. Anyone else have this issue?

    Does anyone know if there a WP 2.3+ compatible version of this or a similar plugin to restrict users to a particular category?

    yeah, Limit Categories won´t work on 2.3 because of the new taxonomy...

    The Bind User To Category plugin seems to work if modified as indicated in this thread
