Permissions and Access feature provides finer control of certain WordPress permissions.


The options available are as follows:

  • Disable File Editing - If you don't want your WordPress site users to edit files from within the dashboard, use this option.

  • Force SSL Admin - This option forces WordPress Admin Dashboard to be delivered over SSL. With this option enabled, the WordPress login is always forced over SSL. That means the URL for submitting the login form will begin with HTTPS://. If you don’t have an SSL certificate installed on your site you’ll face login problems so only do this if you’ve sorted this part out first. Please only enable this option if you have a valid SSL certificate installed. Otherwise, you will be locked out from your site and unable to login.
