WP User Frontend
Restricting back end access blocks 'Press this' bookmarklet (3 posts)

    Hi, I have successfully set up User Frontend and it is doing exactly what I needed - I've been looking for something like this to get out of a mess of often conflicting plugins I had been trying. I have one problem remaining which is causing me problems as the site I am developing will rely on registered users submitting posts. Each user has been set the 'Author' level but if I prevent back-end access to everyone except Admins (which is a key requirement for me) users are no longer able to access the Press This bookmarklet - /wp-admin/press-this.php. They just get "Access Denied. Your site administrator has blocked your access to the WordPress back-office."

    Is there any way of making an exception for this page? Or maybe it's as simple as copying it to another location, and if so, where?

    Thanks

    why would you prevent back-end access to everyone?

    Sorry, I didn't explain that too clearly - I'm not preventing access to everyone, just to new users who sign up and are assigned the Author role. This is a feature of the WP User Frontend plugin which allows you to block back-end access at certain levels.
