    Well,

    Im planning to hire a guy who will post my link around the web and etc, but he sometimes needs to add some info to my blog(basically he just needs to add excerpt to the post) and I was wondering, how could I do it, so he would not be able to see my blog and worse than that copy or screw it up.

    Any ideas?
    Im using wordpress...

    Not sure what you're looking for exactly, if you mean you want to allow him to be able to only edit the posts there then just add a user in your profile and make it an editor, so he will has access to the backend and be able to only post and edit few things there, also you can use this plugin Role Manager .. .

    But if you meant you don't want him to see your blog at all, and be able to submit posts, you need some kind of standalone script for this, like rss2blog script.. but you may need to tweak it a bit to hide your site URL .. .

    No you got the idea somewhat right, but the problem is, that editor can change/edit/delete all, since its kinda seo blog i would not want him to screw up something there.

    But other roles wont have too much possibilities.

    I will check the Role Manager plugin what you told about :)

    Thanks

    I see, then Role manager plugin can do it good I believe, you can make the editor be able to edit his posts only but not Admin posts. As I see in the author blog he has not updated it for quit a while now so it may not be compatible with latest WP version, but based on some new comments there it seems some people are getting it working with latest wp, anyway give it a try .

    Check this plugin as well, never used it but it sounds like it can do it :
