Controlling Access to Front-End Forms in WordPress

Toolset forms allow users to add new content to your site or register a user account. It's important to define who has permissions to use these forms. To set access permissions for Toolset forms you need to install and use the Toolset Access plugin.


Go to the Toolset → Access Control page and click the Toolset Forms tab.

Depending on the type of a form you want to edit permissions for, click to expand the Post Forms Front-end Access or User Forms Front-end Access section.

A table appears, with a lists of all user roles and their access to available front-end forms and permissions.
