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

You are here:

We provide two plugins that allow you to control who can access what on your WordPress site. This is simple way to understand the difference:

OK, that's maybe too simple, so here's more detail:

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

Here's an contrasting example when it comes to Post:

  • PublishPress Capabilities allows you to control who can publish all your Posts.
  • PublishPress Permissions allows you to control who can publish Posts with a particular Status, Category or Tag, or even Posts without a specific 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 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.
