Change view for authors

  • Hi, am a new WordPress user, and need some help with how to alter the view that the user type author has once they log in.

    I would ideally like them to only be able to view the “write” and “profile” tabs when they log in.

    Also, is it possible to edit so that their view when logged to this section still matches my main blog style?

  • I would ideally like them to only be able to view the “write” and “profile” tabs when they log in.

    For a default registered user, he/she does not have a write permission. Only Read Post/Page permission is given by default so that a user can see only “Profile” tabs once he/she logged in. If you want to give a user write permission,
    1. Change Permission one by one. or
    2. Options -> General, change “New User Default Role” to corresponding user level.
    3. Use Plugin.

    Its all up to your choice.

    If I start from a subscriber level and manually change their permissions, once I give them the relevant permissions to be able to write and publish posts then all the other tabs appear again when that user logs in.

    Would also like advice on how I can clean up the post-new screen so that it only displays the post and upload boxes.

    Want to get rid of everything from optional excerpt down, and all the stuff in the right hand column.

    Any ideas on this?
