Permissions of an 'Author' (2 posts)

    I'm looking for a role type that would be similar to those of an author but not only on 'post' level, but also on page level. Meaning he would be able to edit pages that are assigned to his username.
    Is something like that possible? Because role-type 'editor' gives permission to edit all pages and posts, but I would be looking to restrict that.
    Interested to hear any options!

    I just got to know that there are plugins to customise roles in wordpress, for example role scoper http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/role-scoper/. I have installed but haven't worked on it yet as it seemed a little confusing to use. I believe it should be quite complex and powerful in terms of customizing the roles.

    I chanced upon your thread whilst trying to figure out my prob regarding Author Permissions http://wordpress.org/support/topic/356199?replies=1#post-1365412

    I might be trying out role scoper too, so if it works, i will post an update for u.
