    So until now this has never been an issue. But I am using a great plugin WP Assistant Creator. What is does is guides people through different parts of the site. One problem, to create the targets I need to actually see the dashboard as an admin. Any way I can achieve this?


    WC Vendors Support

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-switching/ — One of the most necessary plugins for an admin on a multi vendor site. 🙂 You can “switch” to a vendor with one click, and back to the admin with one click.

    If, instead, you just want the admin to see the dashboard temporarily, edit /public/class-wcvendors-pro-dashboard.php and delete line 388, 389, 390:

    } else { 
    	echo __( 'Admins cannot apply to be vendors. ', 'wcvendors-pro' ); 
    	return false;

    ….and then admins can see the dashboard. But, be careful, you wont see sales, or products, and if you change your settings page you can mess up the dashboard page too. There are reasons why we restrict this, so you’ve been fairly warned. 🙂


    I’ll try the plugin first 🙂


    Had to do the code edit… But being VERY careful
