Works very well indeed
By , for WP 4.3.1

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.

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. :)

TRADUZIDO PELO GOOGLE TRADUTOR DE:
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.

Just what I needed
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was apprehensive after reading the latest reviews, but this plugin works great for what I needed, which was to restrict the Contributor role to posting in specific categories. When a Contributor clicks Posts > Add New, only the categories I selected are available to choose from in the Categories metabox.

I'm not sure if the plugin is suppose to limit showing just the user's own posts under Posts > All Posts and on the dashboard Activity widget (it doesn't), but if that's a concern, try adding the following code to your theme's function.php:

function query_set_only_author( $wp_query ) {
    global $current_user;
    if( is_admin() && !current_user_can('edit_others_posts') ) {
        $wp_query->set( 'author', $current_user->ID );
        }
}
add_action('pre_get_posts', 'query_set_only_author' );
