How can i give a user permission to be able to create new categories , but not delete or modify any other category settings ????
There is no current support for this in the default installation. All category configuration is done in the dashboard which only an admin can access.
One of the ways that this can be done is in a plugin. Here is a brief run down:
Please read this:
have you read the docs:
Right now the only relevant permission is Manage. So in short no, without programming knowledge.
Also unless you extend how the categories are organised, it is going to be a mess.
Categories are old school. Tags are non hierarchical, and give more flexible grouping as a result.
It is all to do with how you actually interface. Just having an ability doesn't automatically make it useful.
grep is your friend.
