Welcome to WPBeginner and thank you for watching.
In today’s video, you’ll learn how how to limit authors to their own posts in WordPress
admin. To get started install and activate the Manage/View
Your Posts Only plugin and that’s all you need to do. As an administrator you’ll be
able to see all posts, but I’ll log in with an author role like this and here you only see
a handful of articles. A drawback to this plugin is that it only
allows administrators to see all posts, but many sites use an editor to edit author’s
posts. If you need that type of functionality, then
instead of using the plugin, just add this bit of code to you functions.php file or a site-specific
plugin. This code looks to see if the current user
is admin or can edit others’ posts and if it can, then they
see all those posts. I hope you liked this video and found it helpful. If you did, click on the like button below and leave us a comment. And if you want to receive more helpful videos don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and check out WPBeginner.com for more useful information on WordPress.
