Controlled access to edit a page

I am looking for a plug in, or process, that will enable me to create a user, and then let them edit only pages I specifically designate for them to edit.

Membership 2 does not do it for me as far as I can tell.

The site is

  • Adam Czajczyk
    • Support Gorilla

    Hey Peter,

    I hope you’re well today and thank you for your question!

    I think you could give Membership 2 another try with an URL protection add-on enabled. This add-on allows you to setup protection rules upon URL strings and overrides all other settings.

    To enable this add on, pleas go to your dashboard’s

    “Membership 2” -> “Add-ons” page,

    scroll down and enable the “URL Protection” module.

    Next step would be to go to

    “Membership 2” -> “Protection Rules” page -> “URL Restrictions” tab

    and add address like this:


    This will automatically setup “Who Has Access” to “Nobody”, thus should protect all your posts and pages from being edited. To grant an access to the post/page to the particular membership then you can add an URL like this one

    yourdoman/wp-admin/post.php?post=2223 (where ‘2223″ is an ID of post/page)

    and simply grant an access on the very same “URL Restrictions” page.

    The drawback here is that it would work on a membership basis, so each user should be assigned a separate membership.

    Simplest solution however would be to use “User Role Editor” plugin:

    It includes the feature for post/page based user management, so it should do the job. I’ve mentioned our Membership 2 because it may work fine along User Role Editor, therefore both plugins should give you very broad user management possibilities!



Thank NAME, for their help.
