only certain people can read entries in certain ca

    is there something already existant, or in development, where you can assign only users of a level or higher to be able to read entries in a category?
    for example, when i post to my private category, i dont want everyone looking at the entries, but i do want a few select people that i pick to be able to read those entries.. So is there any way to do that , or is that going to be part of the “better access control system” in development?
    I just thought it’d be pretty useful.. at least to me 🙂

  • Right now, they are working on passwording a post (it’s there in the Post/Edit section, but I don’t think it’s active just yet). Nothing has been mentioned for private catagories that could be accessed with a password, to my knowledge.

    Password protect is active.
    I think a more comprehensive permissions system would be helpful; for example, there is a setting for ‘allowing’ new users to post, but not an option (that I have seen) for allowing the admin to specify a minimum level for posting. FlashBang’s suggestion certainly has merit.
