This is a FAQ that doesn't appear in the FAQ. I'm using WP as a CMS for a site I'm moving from http://www.eurocall-languages.org, and want to restrict certain authors and editors to particular pages/sections of the site. I can't see how to do this in the basic WP interface, so does this need a plugin, and if so which plugin would folk recommend?
I'll likely be using the s2member plugin at some point and that may have such a restriction capability, but it may not and I would like to know how to do this in a standard WP installation.
This is definitely a FAQ because searching the Codex for "restrict+author+by+page" gets gadzillions of hits, but most are many years old, and the more recent ones I've seen refer to posts rather than pages, for instance restricting editing to certain post categories. I have no posts in my site, only pages, and AFAIK you can't set categories or tags on pages.
I've read the good document on Roles and Capabilities but can't see an answer to the Q in there. If there is a FAQ somewhere, or I've missed a manual page which I should have read, feel free to say RTFM but please be gentle about it :o)
