I need to prevent my users from accessing the dashboard. I'm baffled as to why the default behaviour allows it in the first place, I'm totally bewildered that there isn't an option somewhere to stop subscribers seeing the Dashboard!
I would have thought this was a very basic requirement for a site with any sort of membership structure. You want them to see your site, not the WordPress backend! Only Admins and editors need access to that area to publish content.
I've tried using the Customize Your Community plug-in, and it works to a certain degree. But, when logged in there is a "Site Admin" link in the sidebar that all users are shown. Clicking on it takes them to the WordPress Dashboard. When they are there they can't do anything, but that's not the point, they shouldn't be able to see it in the first place!
See for yourself at http://www.techietalk.co.uk I don't know how to sort this out. What I want to do is have that menu for admins, but everyone else should only have access to their profile.
Can anyone help me sort this out?
