Manage/View Your Posts Only


This is a very simple and straightforward plugin. The Manage/View Your Posts Only plugin is specially designed for those who have many authors or allow guest posts on their blogs. On WordPress, a contributor can write and submit a post and wait for review until it has been published. But while doing so, when they visit the “Posts” section, that lists all the posts, they are able to see posts by other contributors as well that are under review. While there may be no problem with that if all the authors are closely associated to the website or the company. However, if there are many guest writers contributing to a blog, many webmasters and site owners may not want every one of them view what others are posting and what posts are under review.

The manage your posts plugin is a simple plugin that works out of the box. Simply install the plugin and you’re ready to roll. Once the plugin is installed, a contributor can only view the posts that they have submitted and cannot see what others have been submitting. The plugin also hides the total number of posts and post drafts present on the blog to the contributors.

I wrote this plugin because I wanted this same exact feature on my blog and couldn’t find any plugin that could fix it easily.

Will the Author and Administrator be able to view all the Contributor’s posts?

Don’t worry, The Administrator and the Authors have access to all the posts, only the contributors cannot view the posts submitted by the others

Does this plugin conflict with any other plugins?

Not at all, it’s a very simple plugin and there are no issues with other plugins so far.

It is incredible that this still functions (for now). It won’t be long before this plugin becomes unusable though. If someone wants to take it over and recommend something modern (why WP doesn’t make this a native feature….idk). At least, for the moment, it works still 🙂

If you want this to apply to custom post types, simply modify the following line in the plugin: function mypo_parse_query_useronly( $wp_query ) { if ( strpos( $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ], '/wp-admin/edit.php' ) !== false ) { To include the endpoint of the edit page for the custom post type, like so: function mypo_parse_query_useronly( $wp_query ) { if ( strpos( $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ], '/wp-admin/edit.php' ) !== false || strpos( $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ], '/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=[POST TYPE SLUG]' ) !== false ) { You can add as many custom post types separated by OR operators “||” as you’d like.
