Custom Content Type Manager
Feature request: Limit post type editing to user's role (3 posts)

    I'd like to make a suggestion for a new feature which, I think, would make an already indispensable plugin even more awesome!

    I would like to be able to limit a user's access to a custom post's editing features by their roles and capabilities.

    For example, I have 2 post types, exhibitor and press_release, and two user roles (created with another plugin), exhibitor and pragent. I would like to be able to make the post type of exhibitor editable by admin, editor and exhibitor, but not pragent; and likewise the post type of press_release editable by admin, editor and pragent, but not exhibitor.

    Sure, there is a plugin that will give me such, but it's clunky, and I do subscribe to the belief that one should have as few plugins as possible. It seems to me that such functionality would be a logical extension to CCTM.

    Thanks for listening

    Thanks for posting in the issue tracker -- that's the only thing that keeps me sane. Your idea here is a good one!
