Home Forums Back End Custom Admin Page for Registered User Re: Custom Admin Page for Registered User


I think you may be looking for a contributor then…

From the codex:

Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts

In this case the edit option will still be there, but they can only edit posts that they write. They cannot publish anything.

You can change the roles in the admin by going to "Users" and editing an existing user, in the "Role" drop down, choose "Contributor"

Then click "Update User" at the bottom of the page.

If you want all new users to have this role, Go to "Settings" and in the "General" section look for the "New User Default Role"

Set this to "Contributor" and then "Save Changes"
