Per-Post User Level Restrictions (3 posts)

    Hey there Skippy. I take back what I said prior. Your hack was a lot easier to implement than I originally thought. The installation was very quick and easy. The only tiny thing is, I think you may have forgotten to comment in the /wp-admin/edit-form-advanced.php, designating where you made the changes. I did a search for "// SDM 23-05-2004 post_level modification" and nothing came up. Otherwise, all the rest had the comments. I hadn't made any changes in those files originally, so I just replaced them with your modified ones. Great job on this. You have no idea how long I have been looking for this kind of hack.
    Now, I just need to work in the redirection hack and change the permissions of the user levels and voila! I'll have what I'm looking for!
    Keep up the good work, Skippy.

    Thanks for the positive feedback! My apologies if I fouled up the download file. I have a typo in wp-admin/edit-form-advanced.php:
    <?php // SDM 23-04-2004 post_level modification ?>
    Wrong month. Silly me. Thankfully, it sounds like my oversight wasn't an impediment to implementation.

    Skippy, just curious, does this filter the posts from the RSS feeds as well? What about the comments RSS feed? wyzewoman has done another hack, but she says that her comment RSS feed is not being filtered. I'm just wondering whether you took care of this already or not.
    And of course: GREAT WORK! It's people like you that make WP even more polished than it is now. Hopefully some form of this will be commited to the code base so it'll be a standard in the upcoming versions :)
