[Resolved] How to limit author to a specific category?

    A similar forum post re this topic is here, but it leads to what looks like a dead plugin.

    I need a way to limit specific Authors to post only to a specific category.

    Pointing me in the right direction will be well appreciated. Many thanks.

    Not sure what’s up with Owen’s site/plugin downloads. But I can put Limit Cats up on my site, temporarily:

    thanks so much Kafkaesqui!

    For those looking for the same solution as I was, I managed to use it alongside the plugin ‘Role Manager‘.

    Basically Role Manager makes a new Role and then Limitcats limits the categories that role can make. Role Manager can set a whole lotta different settings for roles, btw, all except limiting the categories, so Limitcats fills the gap.

    Thanks again!

    This is exactly what I’m looking for. Is there a version of limitcats (or comparable plugin) for WP 2.5?

    i was using this and it does seem to not work on 2.6 yes?

    is there another solution anyone please?

    I’m interested in this as well, I hope there’s something out there that works! All I need is a plugin to restrict category posting access to users. The new “Role Scoping” plugin is nice but too extensive for what I need. Anything that just modifies permissions for categories (posting, not viewing) would be perfect for me…

    limitcats.php would be great, is it ready for WP 2.6?

    any news about this issue ?

    Any updates for Version 2.7? I get an error about ‘nesting tables’. Very sad…
