WARNING: Allowing Members/Staff Access

I just wanted to share my experience for the sake of other members:

As a warning, be very careful when allowing other community members access to your WP Admin Area or FTP, including staff members.

I spent quite a while on particular settings within my WP site that have been lost. Thankfully I did a manual backup this morning (and hadn't changed much since then). So just remember that if you're going to allow someone, anyone, access to your WP Admin Area, back it up first!

Please don't make that mistake.

Understanding that none of us are perfect and we all have the ability to mess things up. Stay safe and carry on building!
