Can PressPermit do everything Role Scoper can do?

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
