Restrict categories by user capabilities? (4 posts)

    Hi Steven,
    A great plugin so far!
    I would be happy to purchase PRO version (when is it available? and can't find link tot the mailing list that you mention!)
    BUT - one big thing for my site is stopping me using this plugin.
    I Need to be able to restrict front-side categories in both full calendar AND the Agenda widget. (So that ONLY users above a certain capability can see additional categories)
    I have worked out a php filter hack for the Full calendar, but just can't see how to restrict events with the Agenda widget, or individual event posts.
    (I am ok with php, not so good with JQuery etc)
    Is this currently possible?

    I'm glad you like the plug-in :)

    EO doesn't support 'hidden' event categories, however, it should work with most plug-ins that allow you to restrict content.

    Alternatively you could use a bit of custom code to exclude a certain category from all queries (see https://gist.github.com/stephenharris/5600396).

    You can use the shortcodes to include a specific category - in particular the event list (shortcode and widget) and fullCalendar shortcode (see these links: http://wp-event-organiser.com/documentation/shortcodes/ ). Unfortunately this is not available the agenda widget.

    Event Organiser Pro has been available for just over a month now :).

    I had in mind: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/members/ when I mentioned content restriction plug-ins, but I've never tested it...

    Thanks Stephen, I will play around with the github example code!
