What’s the Difference Between PublishPress Capabilities and PublishPress Permissions?

  • PublishPress Capabilities allows you to customize all the default WordPress permissions.
  • PublishPress Permissions allows you to customize advanced permissions that go beyond the scope of the WordPress core.

Here's a simple example:

  • PublishPress Capabilities allows you to control who can publish all your Posts.
  • PublishPress Permissions allows you to control who can publish content with a particular Status, Category or Tag.

Here's another comparison:

  • PublishPress Capabilities allows you to control who can read all your Pages.
  • PublishPress Permissions allows you to control who can read individual Pages, Pages with a specific Status, Category or Tag, or even Pages with a particular parent Page.

There are many more differences between the two plugins, but hopefully this gives you a general guide: PublishPress Capabilities controls the default WordPress permissions and PublishPress Permissions goes much deeper.
