Hi, Can I hide certain categories from all over the site? Works with WPML? Thanks

Thank you for looking at Post Categories by User. The plugin is for restricting users or user roles to be able to post to specific categories (taxonomies/terms) in wp-admin. It doesn’t apply to the frontend.

The plugin has been prepared for translation according to the WordPress Codex for Internationalization, so it should also be compatible with WPML.

There are 167 text strings in the plugin ready for translation. It can also easily be translated with our Easy Translation Manager for WordPress.

Oh i need to repost.

No problem :)

I’d like to list links to posts in specific categories in a sidebar, filtered by the author of the post.

For example; If the category is “favorite recipes”, when a user views a recipe post posted by “Sally”, all the other recipes posted by Sally would appear in the sidebar under “Favorite Recipes”. Favorite recipes posted by other authors would not appear.

Alternatively, I could add “Sally” as a tag, and filter by both Tag and category.

Do you have a plugin that will allow me to post links in a side bar filtered by two criteria as above? If not do you know of one? thanks, W

Thank you for looking at Post Categories by User, however this plugin is for the wp-admin, and you are looking for something for the frontend.

This plugin is for restricting which categories and taxonomies that users can post to when they write a post, post, custom post type in wp-admin.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

Can you show a screenshot about the restriction of the category for a role. For example. Restrict one role to only have access to publish on a particular category Thanks

That is what the screenshot shows above – I just didn’t check any boxes. If you go to http://plugins.righthere.com/post-categories-user/ – you can also see how it looks when you restrict access for a specific user.

hello I have a site for magazine and each section like sport , news , art have its own category I want to put editor assigned to each section . can I use your plugin to make a certen editor or specific category only ie 1- if some contributor post in his category he can see the post and approve it . 2- he only see the post related on the category he is admin on 3- he can post only in the category he is admin on

thanks for be fast response let me give you senarion . 1- I have user name mark I will make this user admin on sport section so he will see all the post in sport caegory 2- I have user name mark I will make this user admin on sport section so he will NOT see posts in other categories 3- I have user name mark I will make this user admin on sport section so he only can publish posts contributors post to this categories .

please answer me with true or false .

Please notice that this plugin doesn’t make someone an admin of anything. It simply allows you to assign Terms from a Taxonomy to a specific user role or user. This means that the user or user role can only post to the specific assigned terms. And the user will not be able to see any other terms from any taxonomies.

Hi, I want to buy this plugin but i need to know if it can do that :

Allow only the last Sub-cat for contribtors to add a post : - CAT A - – Sub cat a - – - Sub cat 2015 (this one)

These categories “CAT A” and “Sub cat a” must be visible but in “grey”.

- CAT A (visible but can’t post) - – Sub cat a (visible but can’t post) - – - Sub cat 2015 (can post)

Thank you for looking at the plugin. You will need to check the different taxonomies and terms that you want the user or user role to use. You control completely which Terms that each user role or individual user can use.

Thank you for your answer. You said : “You control completely which Terms that each user role or individual user can use.” ok but in the dashboard, when a user want to post something in the last sub categorie, does the hierarchy will be viewed ? - CAT A (visible but can’t post) – – Sub cat a (visible but can’t post) – – – Sub cat 2015 (can post)

No only the Terms that you check will be visible.

Hello, could your plugin work in frontend? i would like to restrict my multi user restrict to choose the categories, may you help to customize the plugin? could be make a quotation for this customize, many thanks.

We have a plugin called Pages by User Role for WordPress. It makes it possible to restrict or allow access to Pages, Posts, Custom Post Types and Categories in the public part of your website.

Is it possible to assign and create individual categories automatically?

So when user registers a unique category is created e.g. $user_id And a child category e.g. “my posts”

The user should only be able to submit posts to his personal category and be able to manage/add his own child categories.

Is such possible, or is such possible to create?

No it is not possible to automate this process. I guess anything is possible to the person that doesn’t need to do it themselves. :) Put another way it can be done, but you will need to do custom programming.

is custom programming a (paid) service you offer?

We do not do custom programming. If a feature is requested by many customers we normally review and might add the feature. If you look at the change log of many of our plugins, you will see that we constantly work on improving the plugin.

Does this support bbpress? Specific bbpress forums or bbpress categories.

And does this plugin support specific tags?

I have not done any testing with bbpress. It works for Taxonomies (and the terms). I will have to do some specific testing with bbpress in order to be able to give you an answer. However we follow the WordPress Codex for Taxonomies (and terms), so in theory it should work, but I will need to test.

Can you please test it and let me know before I decide to buy the plugin?

Ok now I get it. That will require custom programming. This is not supported out of the box.

Hi, great plugin. My problem is with visibility of posts from other category. I’ve got two users and two categories. I assigned restrictions. And works fine. But one user can see other posts from second user in posts lists page (admin area). How restrict this. User with restrictiction to one category should see only own posts. please help.

Thank you for buying the plugin. Please notice that Post Categories by User for WordPress doesn’t restrict access to posts. It restricts access to Taxonomies (terms).

If you want to restrict access to Posts, Pages, Custom Post Types and Categories in the public part of the website or in wp-admin you can use the Pages by User Role for WordPress.

Did i understand correct? I have 7 types different user role (created user role editor) and all user can publish new post but user A publish on category X, user B can publish on category Y (both of them admin selection) , right?

Yes that is correct. You can assign terms by User Role or by individual user.

I should ask before, sorry, i purchased Kleo Theme on theme forest, any conflict? or theme is not important…Thanks

We have no reported conflicts with this theme. If you run into issues we will be happy to assist you. Just submit a ticket through our Help Center.

Hi there, Does this plug in support hierarchies.

So if I allow user A to post to Cat A, will it also allow posting to the sub Categories B, C and D, but not a category from a different Hierarchy.

Also, I’d like User A to be able to create her own categories, but only under the Cat A hierarchy, not a different hierarchy.

Does your plug in support this?

Thanks,

Thank you for looking at the plugin. I know for sure that you can not restrict which Taxonomies users can create terms in with this plugin.

You would need a plugin like our White Label Branding for WordPress to restrict users access to different menus in wp-admin, but this would still not limit the creation of terms to a specific taxonomy.

If you take a look at the screenshots http://plugins.righthere.com/post-categories-user/ – you can see that there is no hierarchy build in. You need to check the terms, which you want the user to be able to post to.

I will talk to the lead developer and see if we can add support for allowing posting to children of a parent. That is definitely not a bad idea!

Hi. 1 – Any screenshot with taxonomy assignation on a specific user (is it in on profle page ?) 2 – Do you maintain this plugin ? :-p thx

Thank you for looking at the plugin. Yes, of course we maintain the plugin :) Go to the item page and then click on the screenshots button – then you can see the interface and how you assign Terms to each user role. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, does this plugin works with custom taxonomies for CUSTOM POST TYPES, or only with custom taxonomies for normal WP posts? Thanks.

It should pick up any Taxonomy (term) that follow the WordPress Codex. In some rare situations some plugins are not following the standard way of creating Taxonomies and we might need to take a closer look. However this is very rare.

Hello may i know. 1) If i create new role user call wholesaler by wholesale plugin. This plugin will also allow to role this type of user? 2) This plugin allow both of Post of wordpress and add product of woocommerce?

Example: 1) Admin when post , admin will see all catalog website have
2) wholesaler when post product they will only see catalog wholeale—> Another catalog hidden
3) Normal user when post product they will only see catalog of normal product (such as: clothes catalog, shoes catalog…) —> Another catalog without this role, hidden

Thanks

The plugin will pick up all custom user roles and should also display all your taxonomies and terms.

Hi, the last update marked in the details seems to be from 2015? Is this really so or is this plugin still beeing developed?

We are looking for a way to move a website from another platform to WP with multiple users (205 users). Most of the users are doing blogging, but we don’t want to open a multi WordPress. This plugin would seem like a way to achieve that all.

Is this still being developed? Do you think this would enable one WordPress installation + some 100 bloggers having each their own category and this way their own blog page?

Thank you for looking at Post Categories by User Role.

There are no changes in WordPress Codex, which requires this plugin to be updated. And we have not added any new features. What this plugin does it pretty straight forward.

You can definitely use this plugin to assign specific Taxonomies and Terms to user roles as well as individual users. It might take a bit time to set up if you are doing this for 100+ individual users, but once done you are good to go :)

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, is here posible show category only for current user (user create category, and he see only his own category)?

This will allow you to assign specific categories (and terms) to users and user roles. It doesn’t take into account future categories/terms. I will submit this to our wish-list.

hello.. ive seen this plugin after ive checked your whitebrand plugin … i’ve thought that this plugin will restrict specific user from posting and editing specific categories.. so far i can only see that i can post in specific category but i can still edit all other posts on my website? is this correct ? i wanna limit specific user to have only 1 category to edit / post and not be able to see or edit any other posts..

You are correct that this plugin can restrict which categories you can post to, but it doesn’t restrict what you have access to e.g. Editing, Deleting etc.

This is all controlled by WordPress Capabilities. In our White Label Branding for WordPress, we have a Role and Capability Manager and you can set the capabilities in a way that users CAN NOT edit other users posts or pages.

oh :| ... in that case i need your other plugin which was actually one i was thinking of buying but after searching comments i expected that this will be enough .. is there any chance for refund ?

White Label Branding for WordPress can not restrict which category (taxonomy) users can post to. So If you want to achieve what you described you would need both plugins. This way you can assign specific categories to individual users or user roles and with White Label Branding you can then make sure that it is not possible to Edit Other Users Posts or Edit Other Users Pages.

Hi – presales question, if I may.

1 – If I extend categories support to Pages, will this plugin work for them?

2 – I want certain club members to be responsible for the content in specific categories. So, ‘Joe’ will be able to add/edit/remove pages in ‘social events’, and that category only. Will this plugin support that?

Thanks!

This only applies to Post Categories (taxonomies and terms). If you want to restrict access or allow access to specific Pages, Posts, Custom Pages, Categories and Taxonomies you can use the Pages by User Role for WordPress plugin.

This plugin was originally created for the frontend, but you can reverse the features so they work inside wp-admin. This will allow you to apply these restrictions to user roles in wp-admin.
