    I too would prefer a more role based user priviledge system. Your proposal looks good. In addition, authors and editors could be given priviledges in one or more categories, not just one, via a simple checklist of categories. The Big Chief/Editor-in-Chief would also have privs to manage links and categories. For single user setups, one Big Chief account would be used for the day-to-day stuff, and the admin account would be for tweaking options.

    sounds like the
    textpattern system to me…

    @anon: maybe, but I swear didn’t see that befor 🙂

    It’s a fairly typical workflow.

    If this is going to be implemented, then also having a privelege system for viewing posts would be awesome!
    Something like only users with userlevel greater than x can view this post.

    I’ve notice similar issues with the comment moderation system and userlevels. I’ve posted them as a bug report, although the more I think about it, the more I realized it’s equal parts documentation request and feature request! But some of the behaviors are clearly bugs…it’s hard to pin down exactly which, without a clearer understanding of what the WordPress community, esp. the dev team, intended or wants in the fugure. In my bug report I put a link back to this support request too.

    Somehow it will all work out…eventually. Thanks for reading.
