Question Is there a way to only give members access to edit the Basic Settings, but not the Advanced Settings?
Yes, with a Pro system this can be acheived by putting the admin in their own membership, and then to modify the html template files for adminpages so that the advanced settings button only appears in the membership that the admin belongs to.
A. If this section is not editable then it would require changing it from PHP file If you are familiar with PHP/HTML then you can follow the following instructions - Go to File Manage - Click edit page icon - Search and replace http with https for the button
It's not recommended to do that if you're not familiar with PHP/HTML If you prefer we can change it for you
A. If the section you want to edit is editable, then you can edit it as HTML code by turning off editor from View/Info -> TURN OFF EDITOR(html code).
If the page is not editable then you can edit it from File Manager after login to your WMT client admin account.
If you have an editable page and want to convert it to be not editable (to be completely editable from WMT client admin file manager), we can convert it for you as long as there is no member edited it before.
To do this go to member variables page (/admin/membervariables) and add a member variable for the about me section
Add it to a Page
Inside of an editable WYSIWYG section of a page add the code ~var#~ where you want the content to appear. Be sure to get the correct code where # is replaced with the number of the member variable. You can get the correct code either from the member variables page or from "View/Info" -> "Dynamic Info (~~)" in the page editor.
Test it Out
Go to the members page (/admin/members) and login as a member. Go to their profile (/admin/profile) and enter a value for their about me section. Then view the member's page where you added the member variable ~~ code and you will see the content there.
