    Is there a way to lock a user account from being edited?

    I have a membership site and I set up a user account for everyone to use so they could log in.

    The thing is the way it is set up now, any member can go in and edit the password to whatever they want.

    Is there a way to lock it so no one can edit the credentials or account details but me?

    Thanks!

    This plugin will hide the Dashboard, but it will not disable the "Reset Password" link at Login:

    Thank you

  4. I'm the author of WP Admin No Show (so thanks @leejosepho for the recommendation). Removing the reset password functionality was something I'd never thought of, though I may consider it as an option (it's never been requested before, so not sure if there's much demand).

    However, @kytro360, you might check out this article if you need to prevent password resets from the login form:
