[Resolved] How do I stop members to have any access to the back-end?

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:
The user would like to restrict all users from accessing the wp-admin area.

Solution:
Toolset does not offer any way of restricting the backend for the site users. You can still achieve that using a 3rd party plugin or using custom code. Check the following links:

I don't want my members to have access to the WordPress back-end, I only want them to be able to use the front-end.

At bear minimum this is to remove the admin toolbar (automatically upon sign-up, I know this can be unchecked on the profile edit page). Ideally, they wouldn't be able to access the back-end if they knew any of the standard WP paths/pages.

This doesn't seem like a big ask fo ra membership site, so I assume I've missed something obvious but can't find it in the documentation. How is this achieved?

Hello and thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Toolset does not offer any way of restricting the backend for the site users. You can still achieve that using a 3rd party plugin or using custom code. Check the following links:
