#2530 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Flickr-like access control for friends and family

I'd like to be able control access to certain posts and pages based on whether I consider the reader family, friend or the public, much like Flickr.com does.

Maybe by subdividing the Subscriber Role into Family/Friend/Public?

Or maybe plugin material.

Yes, plugin material. I've got a partially completed plugin that controls access based on XFN data, kinda like Flickr.

Hi Christian,

This ticket database is mostly for WordPress core items that map to descrete design / programming work. Having the ticket open with a different milestone is unlikely to affect this getting implimented. ("Bug voting" does not work in my experience)

As Ryan wrote it is currently considered "plugin material".

Re-closing as WONTFIX, which just means that the enhancement is known, but a design with what changes to core this would require (if any) is not identified.

Christiaan, no reason to be sorry! Keep on WordPressing!
