Wow. Thank you. That is exactly what I need. I saw that function elsewhere, but failed to realize that you could pass in a role name. You Rock!

comment Is there a plugin to make attaching images easier?
I have accepted your answer, however, I still prefer the interface provided by the "attachments" plugin because it gives you a list of thumbnails on the edit page itself (not in an overlay).

The benefit that the plugin provides is the visual interface. It allows you to sort by drag and drop and allows you to add, remove attachments very easily.

comment Is there a plugin to make attaching images easier?
I didn't know that this sort of functionality is built into Wordpress. Thanks for the explanation. However it doesn't really achieve what I was hoping to. I have posted an answer (to my own) question which describes a plugin that does exactly what I was looking for.

comment Display a portion/ branch of the menu tree using wp_nav_menu()
I am not sure that I am following what you're saying. I am looking for a read-only solution for displaying "sub-menus" related to the current page a user is at. Are we talking about the same thing? - I do appreciate your deeper explanation about the database schema though.

comment How to increase the file size limit for media uploads?
Thanks a ton! I am new to Wordpress and PHP so this was very helpful. Just a note for anyone else out there, if you're running on IIS, you'll need to restart IIS after editing your php.ini file.

comment How to use query_posts() with a date filter on a custom field?
I tried swapping out to use date("Y/m/d h:i A"). That didn't seem to make any difference though I think it should have.

comment How to use query_posts() with a date filter on a custom field?
Is there a way for me to store the date as a Date? I thought the only way to store custom meta data was as a string.

comment How to get the Date Format and Time Format settings for use in my template?
Thanks, turns out that the jQuery plugin uses different date and time tokens to specify format after all. So, while this doesn't solve my problem at hand, I appreciate you sharing for my future benefit.
