Membes and Authors have access to the dashboard since they can create posts.
Virtually everything WordPress admin setting wise is not even viewable let alone editable.
However, several sections of the Symposium settings can be edited. I need an option were all of them can be hidden or give the message "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."
Now I'm not a coder, but I can at least copy and paste code if I'm shown it.
This is a serious problem since I can't have my members playing around with such settings.
