Front-End Users

Hides the WordPress admin section from specified user roles, allows users to edit their settings from the front-end, and more.

Front-End Users is a WordPress plugin that prevents specified user roles from accessing the WordPress admin section (the pages in /wp-admin/), sets up a profile editing page on the front-end, and allows for customization of front-end user-specific pages. This allows you to hide all of the WordPress back-end from specified roles (e.g. Subscribers) and instead present to them a profile editing page (and, optionally, other user-specific pages) that have the same layout as the rest of the site. The front-end functionality is available to all roles, but you can choose which roles are able to access the WordPress admin section (by default, only Administrators have access to it).

Front-End Users also makes it easy to:

  • Display user-specific links that depend on the login state (e.g. "Sign in | Register", "John | Sign out", "John | Dashboard | Sign out")
  • Change the URL of the profile editing page and other user-specific pages
  • Add other user-specific pages and display a menu of all of some of these pages
  • Determine whether the current user has access to the admin section

The documentation for the hooks is in example_hooks.php, and the documentation for the functions is in functions.php.

If the User Avatar plugin is also installed, the avatar-editing functionality it provides will be shown on the front-end user settings page.
