WP User Frontend
Users Can't Access 'Upload Avatar' When 'Admins-Only (1 post)

    In the plugin settings I have 'allow backend access' set to "admins only" (which is what I want because I don't want anyone but me using wp-admin).

    However, when I do that and then click the upload or change a user avatar link in edit-profile of wp-user-frontend (using a non-admin user account) it redirects to the wordpress page that says "the admin has restricted access to the wordpress backend" (which is true obviously, but how do I restrict access to backend while still letting non-admin users to upload a user avatar).

    NOTE: When I change the 'allow backend access' settings in wp-user-frontend to "all access" THEN non-admins can upload an avatar just fine, BUT it doesn't happen in the frontend, it takes them to the backend to do it (which is obviously exactly what I don't want, ie, the whole point of this plugin).

    ALSO NOTE: I'm using the User Avatar plugin on my site:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-avatar/

    Any chance that there is a conflict with that particular plugin? And if so, I'll gladly use a different one; please just advise me as to which wordpress avatar plugin is known to work with your plugin.

    I'm using the latest updated versions of wordpress, wp-user-frontend, and user-avatar

    Thanx mate, awesome plugin!
