Wordpress plugin to limit author permission


Well-known member
Anyone knows any WP plugin that limit post/page authors to only edit their own page/posts?

I have a couple users who need to create/maintain their post/pages. I don't want them to have access to any other WP area or other people post/pages.

Hi Andy, you don't need a plugin; this is already in WordPress. Just make their role an author (somebody who can publish and manage their own posts). There are a variety of roles that can be assigned. See: WordPress Roles and Capabilities.

Edit: Sorry, I realized that you want them to be able to edit their own pages as well as posts (so the default roles won't do what you need).
