I am in a similar situation to this person, only I need a bit more hand-holding. I don't have a good understanding of php but can cut and paste code with the best of them.
I have Justin Tadlock's Members plugin, and have set up a custom post type and associated custom taxonomies in my functions.php file.
Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:
- User registers and is set as Contributor by default.
- User can now see only this custom post type and can make an entry to this post type, but not publish it.
- User can only see and edit their own post(s).
If possible, I need specifics on what and where to add to my post type registration function. I understand it involves 'map_meta_cap' and 'capability_type' but I don't know how to write the code or where to put it in the function. Once the capabilities are established I can add them as custom capabilities in the Members plugin.
