[resolved] Restrict users to groups (4 posts)

    I am doing a multisite install. My aim is to let the different users belong to group A or group B. The big difference between these groups is that user from A are supposed to post in category 1, while useres in B are supposed to post in category 2. Both groups can comment on both.

    But ... how to do it?

    To be more specific: I want to assign each user in my multisite to a pre-defined writing category (I am planning to query these categories on the front page, separated according to the category). When each user are writing a new post, their category of choice is already given to them by superadmin (hopefully, it should be possible to change category A to B and so on later on).
    I have tried a lot of plugins, but I can't find any one capable of doing this. Anyone with any idea?

    User Access Manager

    It won't autoselect a category for you, but you can restrict which categories they can post in with it.

    Thanks! I will try this one, as well as Author category which I discovered by accident.

    Another way to solve this issue must be to add one extra type of metadata for each user and query on this value, I think.
