I want enable a user to only edit specific post. I am using the members plugin. I do not see a way to achieve this. Do I need to do some code for that post?

Thank you!

the Short and sweet way would be to store the post id that they are allowed to edit in custom user meta. Then us wp_update_post and check if the id is in the user meta if so update if not don't.

and thanks for not voting me down lol, for my reputation is low enough as start hehe :) – Adam Feb 25 '13 at 21:16
To Be honest, I thought about down voting you as this seems like a "Tell me how to do this for free" type question. A suggestion would be to tell us what you've tried what didn't work and other ideas. This encorages the community to then help you though the process. – BandonRandon Feb 26 '13 at 6:02
