    Word Press gives users a default button in top right hand corner where they can edit their profile - especially passwords!
    Amember does not read those changes
    Amember has provided the
    Create aMember Users By Demand button which must be manually ticked to get around that.
    Another way to limit the changes they make is the false toolbar code change..
    for those like me who are bad tinkerers of code – go to the word press site and get the latest plug in
    Just doing it on my site now

    Yep, you gotta keep them out of the back end.

    I don't think the top menu bar is necessarily a default feature of WordPress for a subscriber to a site. However. when logged in as admin, it will definitely be there.

    For example, my site doesn't show the top bar to a visitor or logged in subscriber with either the default WordPress 2012 theme or with StudioPress themes. I think it might be theme related.

    Also be sure to tick the "Redirect profile page to aMember" box in the WordPress widget (as shown in the image below). My understanding is this should redirect anyone trying to edit their WordPress profile back to aMember.
