I have recently installed WP for my Cubscout Pack's website so that we can log the activities we do and announce future events. The site is still fairly new and I am working the bugs out.
Within our organization there is a hierchy: Cubmaster > Den Leaders > Scout Parents > Scouts > Friends and Family. I have 2 main categories; The Pack and Events(using calendar plugin). I then used 'The Pack' as a parent to each of the different dens.
What I am looking to do is assign each user to a position in the hierchy. That way if say the Cubmaster posts something for 'The Pack' everyone would receive an email notification, but if a Den Leader posted something for the 'Wolves' den only the parents and scouts in that den would receive an email.
Also, if I could limit the users post to the category they belong?
I do have some programing experience, but I am just getting into php and mySQL.
