How to limit users to certain categories

edited August 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I am looking for a way to limit users to viewing and posting only in certain categories. I have found a few Addons that are meant to do something like this but according to the comments none seem to work very well.

Has anyone had any experience implementing such a feature?

    If you edit/add a category. Check the box 'This category has custom permissions.' and set up the premissions. OK?

    Thanks, I will give that a try!

    I had a look and I don't think that will allow the flexibility to do what I need because there are not enough "Roles" that I will need.

    I found a page on the help site that talks about how to add a custom role and mentions an "Add Role Button" but this button does not exist in my Dashboard anywhere. Do you know if this because I am using the free version?
