restrict a group_admin to certain categories

Is it possible to restrict the edition and creation of article of certain cartegory to a certain group of admin ?

I see how to restrict categories to users, but I’d like do to the same with administrators.

    I’ve to different things.

    I have groups for front user, this works well. People who does not belong to the group can’t read protected articles or pages.

    But I would like to have groups for the backend, in order to have one administrator by category for exemple.
    I would like to restric creation / modification / edition by groups and by category, so Admin A can edit and create stuff in category 1, but have no rights on others categories.

      I’ve responded to this earlier here but it seems to have gone unnoticed 🙂 :

      You can protect the category – if the user who is publishing the post doesn’t belong to a group that has access to the category, then it won’t be available to that user. Does that work for what you have in mind?

    Hi Christophe,

    Please correct me if i’m wrong.
    Only this group of users having administrator role, will be capable of adding and editing posts in a specific category and the rest of the users-groups will only be capable of reading these articles?

    Kind regards,
