I am looking for a plugin that allows me to restrict access for a individual post/page to a specific role or individual. It also needs to restrict files attached to that post. I have tried several but none seem to have this complete combination or just dont work. What is the best plugin to achieve this or will I have to roll my own?

I have tried:

  • Role Scoper
  • Members
  • User Access Manager
  • 3
    Well, would be nice if you listed in your Question the plugins you have already tried...

Have you tried Members? One of the best I've worked with so far.

    It also needs to restrict files attached to that post — the plugin does that? (considering "files" could very well be images)

  • "restrict files" is exceptionally vague, so I suggested a plugin that might get @kidbrax off the ground. It's got a very intuitive roles/capability manager, which they could use to grant/remove custom caps, & then plug into the default upload process. Jul 13, 2012 at 8:23
  • "restrict files" is exceptionally vague — was thinking the same — I don't see a way other than HTTP pass authentication or IP blocking.

  • yes, Role Scoper supposedly does this but just doesn't work. They supposedly do it by altering htaccess to restrict all downloads and then when someone clicks on a link, they use php to grab the file and deliver it. But as I said, it just doesn't work. He has a new paid version of the plugin but the file restriction piece is not included as of yet.
