    Hi there,

    Im setting up a blog for someone and am looking for a plugin to restrict users from posting to any category but the one which is 'connected' to their account. (or a plugin to prevent users from posting in certain categories.)

    Also im looking for a plugin to only show posts in a certain category on the index.php

    I've been looking through the codex and wp-plugins.net also looked on some other random pages but didnt find what i needed.

    Thanks alot in advance!

    You can specify only a certain category be displayed on your site without a plugin:

    ?php query_posts('category_name=muse&showposts=1'); ?>
    ?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    And then format the entries as desired. The "muse" word is the cateogry name, and the "1" is how many entries from that category I want to display. I use this on my own journal. So I'm going to check that portion out now :)

    I'm also looking for a way to limit what categories people can read pending their role with the role-manager plugin.

    Actually, I realized what I am looking for is slightly different. I'm looking for a plugin that only shows certain categories to certain users. Like Editors could see categories intended for only them, etc. Is there one like this?
