The default option is that authors cannot create or edit pages. This plugin:
- allows authors to edit a page that has been created for them, and also to be able to create sub pages for that page.
- Any posts authored by the author are parented on one of their pages. A delete of a page will delete subpages, and it is not possible to restore a deleted subpage if the parent is no longer present.
- allows a contributor to edit published posts, and create and edit new pages which then have to be published by an author or administrator
- changes the user management screen to show both the number of pages and the number of posts associated with a specific author.
