Dashboard and "Cheatin’ uh?"

  • jdredd87


    First of all. New to WordPress and bbPress as of yesterday.
    I am liking it very much over all. Different, but good.


    When regular users login into WordPress and goto the dashboard

    The Panel “Right now in forums”

    User can click on “Topics” or “Replies”

    They will end up going to this

    And page just comes up with

    “Cheatin’ uh?”

    Doing searches of similar issues I ended up doing these different steps.

    Ive deactivated a member list plugin.
    Ive deactivated and reactivated the forum.
    Under Tools>Forums I ran “Remap existing users to default forum roles” without issue.
    Under Settings>Forums>Auto Role has been checked on and set to “Participant”
    I unchecked and rechecked Auto Role

    So far no go. Only my admin user can click on these.

    Any help for a newb?

    This is correct and is by design, users should only be using the ‘front end’ user interface and not the ‘back end’

    Also check the codex docs here to help you on your way 🙂




    Ok.. just seemed kinda odd I guess. Is there a way to remove it then from even
    being seen? If it doesn’t really work for the backend way why have it there to temp them. 🙂

    Still learning a lot, just some things like this I question as it doesn’t make sense yet.

    Thanks for the link.

    Basically your users shouldn’t be logging into to backend in the first place, thus they should never see that to be even tempted.

    You can add a login widget to a sidebar or create a page with a shortcode, up to you which way depending on how you want your site to look etc.
