    I have an issue with new users, who apparently gets access to others users dash boards, including my admin dash board. They do not have full admin rights i the admin dashboard, but this does not seem right, or am I just touchy feely? :-D

    I am running an multisite enabled version of wordpress 3.3.2 with bp 2.0.2

    I have tried disabling all my plugins with no result.

    Can anybody please confirm that this is not normal behavior and maybe come up with a suggestion of how to fix this issue?

    Thx in advance.

  2. That's how WP has always been.

    This is totally normal behavior :)

    Try this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-hide-dashboard/

    Hehe, Roger that :-D I cant see why anybody would want this setup though?

    I've downloaded the suggested plugin, but the 'mu-plugins' thingy got me downright confused. I have created a mu-plugins folder in the wp-content folder, placed wp-hide-dashboard.php file in there, but this results in this error

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wphd_remove_admin_bar_links() (previously declared in /home/t/e/ftp_teamrampagedk/wp-content/mu-plugins/wp-hide-dashboard.php:46) in /home/t/e/ftp_teamrampagedk/wp-content/plugins/wp-hide-dashboard/wp-hide-dashboard.php on line 62

    Then I placed wp-hide-dashboard.php on the normal plugin folder, tried to activate it via the network admin page, which also resulted in an error.
    My Research in mu-plugins has created more questions than answers, could you point my noise in the right direction on how to get this to work?


  4. Put the whole wp-hide-dashboard FOLDER in /plugins/

    Pick 'network activate'

    Works the same way, and it's easier.

    (mu-plugins is a weird setup if you're not used to it)
