Thank you. I'll look into that. A brief look leaves me wondering whether Role Manager can limit access to non standard elements such as "Photos" or "Products" (admin areas created by plugins).

Anybody know?

Or, would I have to create those functions with a separate script on pages not controlled through WP (external scripts - not WP plugins) and give the client separate admin login pages for those (obviously a lot more work)?
