Automatically Add Terms to Your WordPress Posts with TaxoPress

How to Create a Media Manager User in WordPress

Media Manager Header

We had a question from a PublishPress user who wanted to create a “Media Manager” user role. Their goal was to restrict the users in this role so they could only access the “Media” area of the WordPress admin. The users would have full rights to modify any file in the media library.
