Comments on protected posts/pages visible to subscribers. (2 posts)

    When a subscriber logs in to comment and clicks the dashboard he can see the comments on password protected pages without knowing or entering the password for those pages.

    How can I fix that? Preferably without plugins (I'd rather not use ten thousand plugins) but ok if that's the only way.

    I installed the Hide Dashboard plugin which hides everything but the profile editor page from subscribers. That is good enough.

    I think that the fact that subscribers can see comments they shouldn't is a security problem that should be fixed in the main program. Protected should mean protected. No one but an admin user should have access without the password.
