Login LockDown

    How is it possible to restrict who has access to the configuration options page. loginlockdown.php page on the dashboard and profile pages of users.

    I want to hide these options from users.

    I have Role Editor installed but can not see any capabilities for this plugin.

    Hello Steve,

    The options page should only be visible to Administrators but the plugin is still using user levels which were deprecated a while back so this might not be the case. User levels were replaced with the new roles and capabilities instead which the Role Editor plugin uses.

    Check out this thread with more info on this:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-login-lockdown-plugin-using-deprecated-argument?replies=3

    From that thread you can change the 'edit_users' part to what ever capability you wish to create or you can keep it to edit_users which only Administrators have access to.

    Let me know if this sort of answers your question.

    thanks that has answered my problem.

    I had deleted the old user levels from some roles using the Role Editor plugin. After some further spring cleaning of role capabilities I can now hide your plugin options from all those roles that I want to.

    By using the User Switching plugin I can also now see how things look for any user without all that login/logout stuff that I had to do when testing in the past.

    Glad you were able to solve your issue!

    Yeah I just started using the User Switching plugin myself and I agree that it makes things much easier when checking roles and capabilities of users.
