In order to create an intranet, I needed to manage access to the different categories in the site.
I used Restrict categories (combined with User Role Editor) until I had to face a major problem: restricted users could create a sub category in those they had access to, but only when creating it through a post, and couldn’t access it anymore after, couldn’t see it in the category manager, and so couldn’t add any more post in it.
The only way would be that administrator manages sub categories which is not to consider.
So, my main question is: is there a way for restricted users to have a full control of the child categories they need to create in their own categories?
Continuation of my story. As I had this problem, I tried other plugins and found Advanced access manager, which replaced perfectly both Restrict Categories and User Role Editor, as long as I tested it on my own server. But it refused to work at my clients… So, I switched back to Restrict Categories and User Role Editor, did my categories restrictions by users again (I have about 50 users now, but more will come), SAVED of course, but each time I change the page to manage other users, all the buttons I checked got unchecked…
As it’s an intranet, I can’t go at my clients easily, and I did not have enough time to clean the tables yet, so I get this could cause my problem. But I wanted to know anyway if there was something else to suspect…
Excuse my english (I’m french), hope I’m clear in my explainations…
And in advance, thanks for any help you could give me.
