Works very well indeed

The reviewer @Godaisies has misunderstood what this plugin is for.

It's for restricting a User's access to Categories in the WordPress Dashboard. So, if you want to allow a particular user to log on to WP and add a post in the Bird Watching News section of your site, you can give him or her access to that Category and that Category only. He or she will still have unrestricted access to the whole of the public-facing website.

This plugin is used purely for controlling content creation, not restricting public access.

In that respect, it works perfectly. The only glitch is that the user search does not currently seem to work. So, if you have a site with a lot of users, you need to page through them one at a time till you find them alphabetically. Which is a bit annoying but not enough to stop me giving a five-star review.

The plugin is great and it works as expected, but would be fantastic if the plugin author will implement a feature to make it work with custom taxonomies too!

Great plugin

Tests done on two other plugins for wordpress set that authors had access to only one category. They worked well but the mobile version of wordpress does not work.
Thank goodness because I found this amazing plugin Restrict Categories 2.6.3 and did exactly what I wanted.
Many thanks to the author of the plugin. :)

Fiz testes em outros dois plugins para definir que autores do wordpress tivesse acesso a uma categoria apenas. Eles funcionaram bem mas na versão mobile do wordpress não funcionou.
Menos mal porque encontrei esse plugin sensacional Restrict Categories 2.6.3 e fez perfeitamente o que eu queria.
Muito obrigado ao autor do plugin. :)

It's a useful plugin when you create a community on your wordpress site.

Doesn't work

I set my user to only see a few specific categories. However, when I log in as that user, I can see everything on the website.

No effect in restricting the catoegory

I created a new user role with WPFront User Role Editor. Then use this plugin to restrict the category permission. Yet, no effect.
Then I tried Press Permit Core,which I succeed. Search Limit read access wordpress to get the step on how to do.
