Support » Fixing WordPress » Restrict writing of category; but public viewing

  • I would like to allow one user to write to only one category, and no others. Then I want that category to be publicly viewed by everyone.

    Essentially, I want to assign a different contributer to their own category, but not to have writing access to any other categories, besides the public viewing.

    Most plugin limit the posting AND viewing of a category, which is not what I am looking for.

    Or should I be looking at a different program other than WordPress?

  • Version 2.04 actually.

    A) Please upgrade your blog, you’re a security issue waiting to happen

    B) The plugin you’re after is titled “Limit Categories”. It has been updated and some discussion can be found here:

    I upgraded to 2.2.1

    I had looked at the original version of Limit Categories. This upgraded version doesn’t appear to have changed. I would like to have
    Author1 post only to Category A
    Author2 post only to Category B
    Author3 post only to Category C

    This upgraded version does not allow this. It looks like I can only do the following: Author 1, 2 & 3 will all have access to each other’s Category’s of A, B, & C. This will make things messy.

    Any suggestions?
