    Hello:

    I have WordPress 2.0 running on my servers, and i would like to edit the dashboard view so subscribers, or others who do not have admin access can see a static page that does not contain any of the info that is on the default admin dashboard. i am new to php and WordPress, so any help pointing me in the right direction will be highly appreciated!!

    thank you in advance

    S.

    In WordPress 2.0.2, you could change wp-admin/menu.php at line 7 from:

    $menu[0] = array(__('Dashboard'), 'read', 'index.php');

    to

    $menu[0] = array(__('Dashboard'), 'edit_posts', 'index.php');

    That will send Subscribers to their profile page.
