Adding a Guest Account that can't change password? (3 posts)

    Hi, I am using WordPress for a family blog. I am using the "Members Only" plug-in which requires users to log-in. Thus far is works great and does exactly what I want. I don't want to make all family member register for accounts... etc. So I have made a "guest" account with a commonly know login and password that family member know.

    The problem is this: when log-in in as this guest account you can still access the "Site Admin" page and people could change the password etc. I am not expecting family members to be malicious, just clueless.

    Ideally, I would like to make either a new Role that is allowed all the normal permission of a Subscriber, yet not have a dashboard and not "Site Admin" link. I don't want to hack the Subscriber role.

    Is this possible and where would I start?
