How to prevent all users from seeing the Dashboard

I just started using Vanilla Form from using simplemachine. I imported the database. Now when users come to the new forum all users can see the dashboard. Is there a way to have only admins to see it?

I have change all the roles and premissions

    Welcome to the community.

    If you have changed the roles and permissions in the dashboard, and that is not being reflected in the forum, then perhaas there was an error in the import for
    your database, possibly in GDN_UserRole.

    The standard user role id is 8.

    What is it for your ordinary users?

    What exactly have you changed?

    Only Admin roles should have the Permission Garden.Settings.Manage

    To go back to the default roles:

    Also check your users table Gdn_User. Only the (superuser) admin and System user should have a 1 set in the "Admin" column.
