I am using sitewide protection on my site. Even when I log in as the admin, I can not access URL’s on the front side of my site. I get redirected to my wp-emember login page.
However, when I login as a regular user, I can use the site fine and everything is accessible as it should be.
Why can’t the admin access all pages/posts on the frontside as normal when logged in?
I checked and I see that the admin account is created in wordpress but there is no account for the admin created in wp-emember (to tell the site lockdown not to block the admin when the admin is logged in). Wp-emember should allow admins to view all areas of the site.
This becomes a problem when you are logged in as the admin in wordpress (and are using site lockdown) and want to leave a comment or reply to a forum post (I am using Simple Press Forum), because you get redirected to the WP-emember login page (even though you are already logged into wordpress AND log user into both wordpress and wp-emember is switched on).
Wp-emember doesn’t allow you to access anything that is locked down sitewide, because it doesn’t know you are there as there is no “member” account created to let WP-emember know you are logged-in and should NOT be blocking the site in lockdown mode.
Everything should be accessible to the admin in Wp-emember once they are logged into WordPress. Nothing should be blocked via the site lockdown feature.
Please fix this and allow admins to access everything. Many thanks.June 9, 2013 at 12:37 am #56008adminKeymaster
Hi, By default all emember’s protection will be applied unless you are logged in as an eMember user. It doesn’t differentiate if you are logged into WP as admin. This is how most of our users like it. However, there is a feature in eMember that you can enable to do what you are after. Enable the following feature:
You can put your “admin” user into a super all access membership level of eMember and you should be able to see everything when you are logged into WP as admin.June 10, 2013 at 5:01 pm #56009
That would work but the problem is emember never created an account for my admin so there is no way to link the two together.
I see in the control panel there is a way to create a wordpress account for emember accounts that have ALREADY been created but there is no option for the other way around.
I don’t see an option to create an emember account for wordpress accounts (in this case the admin account) which has already been created.
There is an option to automatically create an emember account when a wordpress account is created, but can’t do it for wordpress accounts that have already been created. There is no option for that.June 10, 2013 at 11:29 pm #56010PeterMember
You could always do the following:
1) Enable the following feature in the “Admin Functions Menu”:
“Automatically create eMember account when a wordpress user account is created”
2) create another administration wordpress account. (This should automatically create an eMember account)
You could then delete your old admin worpdress account if you wish.June 11, 2013 at 12:44 am #56011
OK I will do that. This would be a good feature for you to add. Being able to create an emember account (for existing wordpress accounts). Since you enable this going the other way around (creating a wordpress account for any already existing emember accounts).June 11, 2013 at 2:15 am #56012adminKeymaster
Hi, This feature already exists. Go to the following menu and you can import any existing WP user to emember:
WP eMember -> Members -> Import WP Users
