    I’d LOVE to use your plugin on an upcoming project, but it doesn’t seem to work.
    I am trying to create an access level so editors can only edit posts in a certain category. I’ve read the documentation, and experimented for the past two hours but nothing is happening. I’m using a fresh local install with and without other plugins. The problem? The restriction does nothing. I can still edit posts as a an editor that are outside of the category the administrator specified for me.

    Initially tried pairing it with User Role Editor (as the capabilities set in RUA didn’t do anything either. When that still didn’t help I deactivated the two other plugins I’m using (Classic Editor, & User Role Editor) to make sure there were no conflicts. Now I can’t access the homepage unless i uninstall RUA. it keeps updating the URL to : http://findhelp-test:8888/?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Ffindhelp-test%3A8888%2F

    A real shame, would be interesting in buy the premium, but don’t want to fork out for something that doesn’t work and isn’t stable. Help would be appreciated.

    I get the same problem. It totally broke my site, but I didn’t realise for a while because it only affects non-admin users. All their URLs become encoded and then no longer work. Everything ends up redirecting to the homepage.

    I’d love to use this plugin, but I had to uninstall it, as I need site members to be able to navigate the site.

    I hope this is fixed in the future.

    Thank you for reporting this.

    While it’s possible to grant/deny any capability to any access level, Restrict User Access does currently not support conditional capabilities.

    Restrictions control what users should be able to view content on the site, not edit.

    I have noted this feature request down, so it might be included in a future version 🙂


    It sounds like this is a different issue. If you’re having trouble getting restrictions to work, please open a new thread I’ll gladly help. If possible, provide screenshots of the access level restriction conditions.
