Redirect Front-End

A small plugin that lets you “hide” the front-end of a site, all front-end requests of logged-in users are redirected to the WP Dashboard (filterable).

Useful mainly for developers, if you’re developing a site and want to give users access to see the dashboard while you’re working on the front-end. Also can be used if you have a site with no front-end and always want users to stay on the dashboard.

Filters included:

  • rfe_redirect_caps: Control capabilities required to bypass redirect, lets Administrators access front-end by default (default: manage_options)
  • rfe_redirect_url: Change the redirect URL (default: admin_url())


Latest version: Download Redirect Front-End v0.1 [zip]

A. Nope!
