I have installed teh Buddy Blog plugin with BP Simple Front End Post to allow users to have their own blog. I am having trouble understanding how i set up categories. At the moment i have set up 5 categories in my wp installation. Now all these are visible to all users. How do I set up the plugin so that users only have lets say 3 cat available, but I as admin still have several others?

Please visit the specific group and From Manage->Blog enable the categories you want the users to have.
If that does not serve your purpose, I can provide php code to limit it.

I mean from front end. As a site admin, you should be able to manage any group.

Apologies for my delayed reply.
I believed you have group directory enabled. you can visit Groups directory and then click on individual group and there you can manage things. You can do it from your profile too but that only lists the groups you are member of.
Hope it is more clear now.
I feel really stupid here, but I can not seem to understand what groups has to do with the blog plugin and its categories. What I want to achieve is to manage what categories users can pick when adding a post, and how I can hide certain categries used for me as an admin.
Is the groups connected to the blog?
I am confused.
I give u a screenshot of how it looks on one testuser when I go to the blog section. As you can see the categories give as option are actually ALL the categories I have set up in the wp admin. The question is how do I limit what categories that are visible and available to my users to choose from?

I am sorry. It is all my mistake. I got confused with Blog Categories for groups plugin and told you the way to use that.
After looking at your screenshot and going though the posts I feel like a fool for missing it. You were using BuddyBlog and I did not notice that.
With BuddyBlog, It is possible to selectively allow categories to users but not exclude few and allow others.
Are you using custom taxonomy? If yes, please let me know or is it just category? I will provide you the code that will allow you to limit users to those categories/terms.
No poblem:) I kinda understood we where not on the same page:)
Not sure how i use taxonomy. If you have a simple solution for me to just prevent users accessing my categories(thy only need one) My biggest aim is to keep most categories hidden.
Please provide me with the code and ill try to implement it
