Role Manager para WordPress

Bien… estuve buscando esto hace un tiempo para algunas de mis paginas. simplemente poder asignarles a cada uno de los usuarios que yo disponga sus respectivas incumbencias, es decir,  tener la capacidad de definir que un usuario determinado solo pueda levantar noticias o posts en la seccion que el administrador disponga.

What does Role Manager do?

WordPress Version 2.0 introduces the concept of Roles. Each Role is allowed to perform a set of tasks called Capabilities. This Plugin allows you to define and manage multiple subscriber profiles – called Roles and their Capabilities. Also you can create new Roles and Capabilities.

If you use this Plugin to manage your WordPress, Users can belong to only one role and can have individual capabilities assigned to them outside of the context of a role.
