I'm currently working on a site which requires a business directory for 80 tennants.

In an ideal world I'd like the administrator to create a user for each business and a page in a custom post type. The user would then be restricted to editing and updating only that page.

On the front end these posts would be listed on a page which is searchable.

Has anyone encountered such requirements in the past, any tips, ideas. All feedback welcome.

I've seen Role Manager used to restrict editor access only to pages on which they have been designated as authors. Would guess it would work with custom post types.
