Do users log in and post using the /wp-admin/ link?

  • I’m trying to setup a site where users can make new post with images, nothing more. When I log in as a author (what I have all normal users set to) I’m able to view the IPs of comments. This is something I don’t want my users to see. also I have the thumbnail size adjust plugin (Change size of thumbnails) and this is also something any users are able to adjust.

    I’m guessing that the wp-admin/ link is meant for the admin only, does this mean there’s another place for people to log in that gives them basic access?

    I’ve also noticed that the “write” link is /wp-admin/post-new.php

    once again it uses the /wp-admin/

    Thanks for any help!

  • P.S I’m also running the Sumanasa Design02 1.1 theme, if that makes a difference.

    Nope, themes don’t make difference when it comes about the admin. Everything that is “backend” – goes to the wp-admin folder.
    You may try to give a try to the Role Manager plugin where you can set up custom roles and capabilities, although it may not hide what you want to hide. The problem is, for uploading images you have to set relatively high roles…

    Role Manager is nice, but as soon as they have the option to post images, they can view comments, as soon as I remove the view comments they can’t post images.

    bah.

    no go =(
