I recently published an article on Smashing Magazine‘s WordPress sub-site. It’s called “Limiting The Visibility Of Posts In WordPress Via Usernames” and is located here. It explains a method that I used to on a music school’s website to allow specific students see music and literature destined for him or her. Using the native WordPress custom field function, I was able to allow a teacher to select which student could see a specific post, or even allow some content to be shared publicly. The system that I established could also be expanded for large organizations by placing the students (or other individuals that need specific content) into groups that then could be chosen by a post’s author. You can read the article at the link above, and tell me what you think in the comments section of the article.
