PressPermit Pro introduces some important new features, including custom post statuses, BuddyPress group role assignments and bbPress compatibility. For most sites, it is a functional equivalent to Role Scoper, with major improvements in UI and performance. A few of Role Scoper’s more obscure features are not currently provided by PressPermit (but may be be re-implemented by future extensions):
- HTTP Authentication for feeds
- Customization of NextGEN Gallery editing permissions
- Group membership requests and recommendations *
- Role assignment for limited content date range **
* = But supplemental roles can be assigned to BuddyPress groups, inheriting any membership control
** = However, membership in custom-defined permission groups can be date-limited
