(Client area?) Allow users to only edit/see their own posts

Hi, I am looking to create a “client area”

so users login:

  • Create posts (limit of 3 for example)
  • Only see & edit their own posts]

is it possible?

This is already possible yes with the “Author” role provided by the v3.1.x release feature called RBAC (Role based access control). Authors will only be able to see/edit their own content

This level of control requires the EE version of the RBAC feature, or something like this you will probably want to use the user REST/GraphQL routes in your frontend as there is no limits and total customization ability of those. The Admin panel is slightly limited in control given to the CE users.
