To keep your clients from risky places or to restrict access to specific pages from the clients, you can customise your WordPress dashboard by adding the below code in your theme’s functions.php. This code allows you to hide parts of the WordPress dashboard menu.
You need to uncomment the line ( remove // ) for the page that you want to hide/remove from the WordPress menu.
Be aware that this only hides the menu items from the dashboard and clients can still theoretically access these menus with a direct link (if they know).
When you try to password protect a WordPress subdirectory by adding
.htpasswd under subdirectory, you sometimes (in fact most of the times) get Error 404 – Page not found when you visit that subdirectory location in the browser.
To fix this error, add the following line at the top of
.htaccess located in the root of your WordPress installation (yes, root .htaccess and not .htaccess of your password protected subdirectory), and you’re good to go now.
ErrorDocument 401 default
Do you have any different solution? I would love to hear your comments.
Adding the following code snippet into the
functions.php of your wordpress theme will allow you to redirect failed login attempts to any location.
