Plugin details


The other plugins cannot block individual pages or posts for certain groups. This plugin can do it! It is exactly the missing plugin that WordPress needs compared to Typo3 or other CMS with much better rights management. It is exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks to the developers! In my opinion you need more attention.


It’s simple to use and helpful for scheduling posts and getting organized.
