I’d really like to see a feature in WordPress that restricts various levels (or categories) of users to posting to certain categories only.
Could not figure out how to do this in the admins panel, so I assume its not easily possible?
The current user level system is pretty inflexible. For example, for several small organizations I’m going to be developing blogs for, I need to be able to restrict level 1 users to only being able to post to a “community events” category (for example). I don’t want them able to post to all categories (like organization press releases, etc.).
Also, I need to be able to restrict certain admin users (such as the head of a particular group) to edit and delete only those posts in their own category, not other groups categories.
The level system just makes everyone able to post everywhere, and sets up a (relatively un-useful) heirarchy of who can edit who’s posts by level rating of post only, not by category or content area.
At least as far as I can figure. Am I wrong?
