Support » Fixing WordPress » New users (author) can post only in specific category

  • I have 32 categories in my wordpress. I want to use wordpress as small blog system. Main page is moderated by administrator. I want few specific categories to be moderated by specific users (author role).
    For example, i have categories:

    • main (posts shown on main page)
    • history
    • sport
    • photography
    • BLOG 1
    • BLOG 2

    When User 1 logs in worpdress, i want him to have option to post only in category “BLOG 1” and that he has authorisation to publish his own posts.
    It would be the same for User 2, difference is the this one could post only in BLOG 2…

  • Any luck on this? I have a need to limit users abilities to edit/post to certain pages. User 1 can only maintain pages A,B & C. User 2 can only maintain pages X, Y & Z. The administrator would have complete control over all and be able to periodically change these user’s passwords.

    Perhaps there might be another post better suited for my question, if so, please accept my apologizes.


    I’ve been looking for the same thing. There used to be a plugin called limitcats, but that’s for older versions of WP (pre-2.5). Let everyone know if/when you find a solution!
