[resolved] Front end logged in users can access back-end of website! (3 posts)

    Hello! I am testing my website as a subscriber with the WP-Members plugin and can still access the back end of the website just by adding wp-admin to the end of the URL. When a person subscribes to the website, I want them to be able to access additional information on the front end, NOT be able to get to the admin side of WordPress.

    Is there a way to restrict who can get to the back end of the website based on their user level? In other words, subscribers should not be able to access the admin pages of WordPress but higher access levels can.

    Thanks!

    Access to the back-end is quite different for a subscriber versus an administrator. This is a feature of WordPress, not the plugin.

    Unless you have some poorly coded plugins providing information on the dashboard, the only access a subscriber has is to edit their profile (registration info).

    I can't find anywhere in the WP Members plug in that allows for a Profile pic.. how can I add this functionality and when I click 'profile' for someone who's not an admin, I can't even edit the profile to add a pic.

    How can I get a pic for profile added to the Registration page?
