I have a client that wants users to be required to register & login to comment on her Wordpress blog, but she doesn’t want the users to be able to see any of the Wordpress back-end. Can anyone recommend a good plugin for this? Thanks!

Truth be told, there isn’t a good plugin for this.

I’ve been doing the same with a website I run and looked everywhere for what I needed and had no luck whatsoever. So instead I was forced to re-code certain sections, rip apart the backend and add new little features to be included.

If you do find a plugin that works well, I’d be interested in knowing. If you’re by chance looking for freelance assistance, I’m available for help. Just use my profile page to contact me or send an email to sakimaa (AT) gmail.com

Best of luck and have a fantastic weekend!

Not a problem. Be sure to share your findings if you find something new :) I’ll do the same!

Maybe you need to integrate a sidebar widget like I did in a theme of mine: http://themeforest.net/item/phiyaz-entertaintment-community-theme/67220

User can register and login on the sidebar, and when logged in, they will see their panel and their latest posts.

try absolutely privacy plugin

http://www.johnkolbert.com/project/absolute-privacy/

Yeah, that looks like it would do the trick, plus lots of other stuff. I figured out a simple way of doing this in the meantime. I created a plugin that blocks the entire admin area from the Subscriber role. Here’s the code:

function hide_admin() { if (get_current_user_role()=="subscriber") { header("Location: ".get_option('siteurl')); } } function get_current_user_role () { global $current_user; get_currentuserinfo(); $user_roles = $current_user->roles; $user_role = array_shift($user_roles); return $user_role; }; add_action('admin_init', 'hide_admin');

Hmm – Sounds like a great idea for a premium WordPress plugin for the new WP Plugins category, which is launching on http://www.codecanyon.net tomorrow. :)

Any coders interested in building it?

Yep, already built it. Guess I’ll submit it and see what happens!
