Blog management. Why "bloggers" have access to "Admin" main blog?

    Installation, key plugins working fine (tatazara.com), and hopping to open the site in about one week. Now that I am testing it as a user, I noticed as a new member that the buddypress navigation bar allows me to enter into the “Admin” section of the site owner. Although it did not allow me to delete posts, it still lists them. This is in addition to the blogger having his own “admin” for whateve blog he created. I am missing something? I surely would have to find ways to disable any access to tatazara.com/wp-admin That cant happen. Thanks in advance

    By the way: I picked the default role for members as “subscriber” in the “Dashboard blog” but after saving, it won;t even take and default back to “contributor” which I suspect is the problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I’m using a plugin called WP Hide Dashboard on the primary blog:

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

    This hides mostly everything from a subscriber.

    Hope that helps!

    thanks r-a-y I installed that one but I think I am facing a bigger problem that is preventing the system to work as intented. Essentially, though I have the site’s “Dashboard blog” ‘user default role’ as “susbcriber” so-called subscribers are automatically tagged as ‘contributors’ on the buddypress menu… In case you are curious, u can log in as user: riski pass: riski123 on http://tatazara.com May be you will discover something I am missing.

    Cheers and thanks for your feedback/

    the user is having access to your admin-interface ?

    where do you click within your navigation-menu, so that the user can access your Admin-interface ?

    I just logged into my website as a user and did not see this issue. However I see that a user is able to install “Plug-ins” and also use the “Tool”-section. This is really not something which I would like to show to my users as they anyway have no clue what to do with all this….

    Erich73.. this may be a worpressMU issue and someone suggested there was already a TRAC for it. In my case, when someone registers and decides to create a blog, the system allows them to do 2 things: they have control over their own blog… and then they are also able to get into the main blog ADMIN (which is yours) allowing them only to submit postings. So in essence, the posting section of the super-Admin is enabled, though it is moderated, so you can decide to post it on front page. So Andrea_r was very kind to post a reply to my crazy FUD on the WordPressMU site but I have not checked it… anyway, here is the link: http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic/13936
