Allow admin to bypass all protection

Currently you have to use the preview bar when logged in as an admin to switch between different content levels. While this is cool for development it's not really ideal for day to day usage. By default any wp admin account should be able to bypass all content protection so they can see everything at all times. This would allow us to only use the preview bar when we want to check different access levels while developing or setting up content access.

Yes, thats suuuper annoying! I thought I was the only one :/

Disable it completely.

A simple toggle ON or OFF in General settings would be marvelous.

I can login as a member account and fine..but previewing the page as an admin it won't allow it and it's confusing to force it to allow it.

You need to physically shut the page out then open it again..

Honestly, it's a hinderance.

Especially when I'm designing pages and all I want to do is see how it looks??!!

Please fix this ridiculously annoying issue. How could any developer think that locking a admin out of his own site 95% of the time is a smart idea?

I agree. It would be really helpful.

Brutal oversight


I would also like to see this feature added :)

I've got a slightly different issue. I use a lot of smart tags and it would be helpful to have a toggle that allows me to see the page/post as it is displayed to non-subscribers
