How to Allow Editors to Only Edit Certain Pages in WordPress

Fantastic post! I didn’t know that was possible in WordPress. I wish I would have found this sooner. Is there a way to assign, let’s say, two or three authors as editors of one or more pages? If so, I would love to know how that works. I have a multi-site setup and I would like for my editors to only see the pages they are responsible for editing. However, I would need some pages to be editable by more than one person… So, in this case, some pages would need more than one author. Is that possible? Hopefully it is! That will help me out a bunch! Thanks!

While WordPress can be used as a personal blogging platform with just one user, most large sites have multiple authors writing about different things under various categories. WordPress has a sophisticated system of roles and permissions that allow fine tuning of what each user can do. By default however, an editor can go to “Posts->All Posts” in the WordPress dashboard and modify any existing blog entry – regardless of whether they wrote it or not. This requires a certain amount of trust to be placed in your editors.
