Here's hoping all is well with you. I'm interested

Hi Guys,
Here's hoping all is well with you.

I'm interested in controlling...
Who can post in what category
How many times they can post.
Even if it is post per week that would work.

Would membership allow me to control
who can post where and how often?

For example I have a store page that takes the store category.
I would like the stores to only post once.
Like a profile of their store they can edit.

I have an events page that I would like them
to be able to post as often as they need,
but pay per post. I am using the events plugin.

Also, a promotions page which they can post sales to.
This would be pay per post as well.

Kind of a Rubic's Cube I realize but
I don't feel it is impossible.

Any suggestions would be great!

All the best
Richard

    Hello @Richard

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    I also think that it is pretty much possible. But you need some custom coding to do it. You need to create some role and capabilities. You can member or user role editor plugin to do so.

    Then you will correct roles to the users. Then you have to control from your functions.php or mu-plugins, to check that if the current user has capability to post in the category.

    Cheers

    So I may just have the site admin post the stores profile.
    That leaves me with allowing members to
    Post in the promotions and events category.

    Is there a way to charge per post?
    Does membership handle fees?
    Will I have to set up monthly and yearly subscriptions?

    I'm brain storming now. My post looks like a whorl wind.

    Thanks for the feedback

    Post in the promotions and events category.

    Ahh I don't think you can handle in this way. But if it is a custom post type, then it may be done.

    Is there a way to charge per post?

    Charge for who? The creator or the visitor?

    Does membership handle fees?

    Membership handle fees.

    Will I have to set up monthly and yearly subscriptions?

    You can set either monthly or yearly whatever you want. Even you can set it up weekly, bi weekly or for 10 days. You can create multiple access levels for the users, and you can control posts, category, pages, custom post types, BP groups or pages etc with those access levels. It's worth to take a look on the uses guide:
