    Is there a way to completely lock down the admin interface for all users except the site admin?

    I assume if you only give your users low level access, then it won't be a problem. Failing that, you could create a shortcut to the admin file on your desktop and login in that way, instead of having a link on the website?

    "I assume if you only give your users low level access, then it won't be a problem."

    Since WP does not support user groups, I want to have only 3 or 4 different users (friends, family...) each with a different password - and I don't want people to edit prefs/pw for that user at all.

    Hiding the link wouldn't work as everybody who realizes I am using WP can manually type the URL to the admin interface.

    I found out however that using http-authentication for the wp-admin directory works fine. I would have preferred a solution integrated with WP, but for now that's good enough. Really hoping for more user/group/permission features though...
