If it is just for Editing Posts/Pages etc you can utilise some front-end editors to do this, WordPress are even working on an official one as we speak, but they are still reliant on the client logging into WP.

There are a lot of hooks/options for customising the Admin area also. For example in a recent multi-blog site I did I removed everything from admin for blog users except Media and New Post options. I even wrote a code that forced them to pick a category for posts and integrated that with a Custom Roles plugin. This made the learning curve for the end user a lot simpler..

Hi Hossam! As far as I know, I don't think that's an option. I was looking at your points in Wordpress though, and I think you'll be interested in the later courses on customizing the input options for Wordpress. If you're worried that a client won't be able to understand how to put information or posts/items into their page, there are awesome plugins to customize which make fields really tailored. The videos will mentions plugins like "Custom Post Type UI" and "Advanced Custom Fields". Best of luck! Nicole
