WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm currently wanting to have it so that writers on my site have to have an admin approve their content before it's published, but still be allowed to do other tasks such as uploading images, adding tags, etc, and the wordpress static permission levels are either too restrictive, or let writers publish themselves.

I know on drupal there is an easy way to edit permissions for account types, but I was wondering if there is a way to do the same level of functionality with wordpress at all.

Check out Members or Role Scoper plugins.

Memebers is a decent plugin - similar but better than the Role Manager plugin. The Role Scoper plugin I found simply way too confusing. –  icc97 Jan 11 '12 at 21:09
