Support » Plugin: Remove Dashboard Access » Works but users don’t know why

  • It has a forced redirect always ON. Why? No reason.
    The warning message should pop up after login attempt in red like the wrong password message. A redirect is useless because people doesn’t understand why it doesn’t work and contact the admin. they don’t see the message above, they want to login.
    When doing plugins you have to think about what real people will do.

    Hi @ctrlaltdelete,

    Thank you for the review. I understand your frustration, though I think it may be slightly misplaced. This plugin is definitely built with the site administrator perspective in mind … if users are expecting to access the Dashboard and lack the appropriate capabilities, the onus is really on the site administrator to properly reset those expectations.

    One way to set expectation from the outset could be accomplished by setting the “Login Message” setting to display a message along the lines of “Non-administrators will be redirected to the homepage.”.

    The warning message should pop up after login attempt in red like the wrong password message.

    Custom errors on the login screen are incredibly difficult to do properly purely because WordPress doesn’t make it easy to customize that experience.

    Hope that helps, and if there’s anything I can do to improve your rating, please let me know!
