Users' rights and screens - Question (2 posts)

    I have searched under 'roles and capabilities', 'users' rights', 'screen views', etc. but I cannot find that anyone has asked this - although it obviously poses an issue!

    I have just logged into my new wordpress site to check what a user would "see and feel" - when I get one ;-)

    A User sees the entire "Media library" (wordpress standard) and the "Sales" and "Revenue" screens and graphs (shop plugin only)!

    Surely I can't be alone in that I don't want that a User has visible access to all the media I use in my blog, all images, sound tracks, etc. Why is this? How can I please take this out of the User's reach? (Simple solution needed because I am not yet a geek.)

    The "Shop" things I have to ask of course at the plugin-creator's site, but equally I can't understand why someone would want his Users to have access to such confidential data...?

    Am I missing the point on any of the two above?
    Any feedback very welcome! Thanks for reading this. I love the ease of wordpress. All is automatic. Wow!

    Best wishes
