Regarding visitors to my site
I would like for visitors (“users with ID and password”)to be able to do only one thing on my site
read only.. and nothing else whatsoever
is this an option?
Link to your wordpress.COM blog?
Thanks – just needed to make sure you were hosted here at wordpress.COM since we get a lot of users that aren’t. If you go to settings>discussion in your dashboard, uncheck the box Allow people to post comments on the article. (You may also want to uncheck Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) )
This should work:
Go to your Dashboard-> when you Edit Post ->go to Discussion -> then uncheck “Allow comments on this post” and “Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this post”
Right. My way is only per post.
does the menu bar at the top of the page have to remain visible?
the bar with “My account”, “my dashboard”, “new post” “blog info” etc?
If you are not logged in, or a visitor, will not see any of that. Readers have no access to your account, dashboard, nor making new posts.
but the only vistors i want are logged in users who i wish only had subscriber permissions
know what i mean?
They are not logged in to your account. They are logged in to visit your blog. The will not be able to see your administrative things.
Your readers will see a gray admin bar that is linked to there account
instead of yours.
Linked to THEIR accounts. not yours.
They won’t be able to post on your blog, nor change anything on your blog. And if you block comments, they won’t be able to comment either.
anyway of removing the grey admin bar for contributors (which is the least active role possible)
sort of distracting
No, there is no way to remove it. And to be honest, it doesn’t sound like you want a blog at all.
not sure how to take your comment
hope it was meant well
problem from what i can see is.. the logged in user can see my updates under the “your stuff” column
i guess i could use it to my advantage
thanks all for your assistance
enterprisecorruption is also waleskareinhardt (this is my test account)
“… the logged in user can see my updates under the “your stuff” column …”
No they cannot. Read this:
yes they can
but like i said, i guess i could use it to my advantage
I think I know what’s wrong here – you have added these people as contributors to your blog, which you did NOT have to do. You can have a private blog and invite those with a wordpress.COM user name to view it WITHOUT them being contributors.
