    Hi,
    First of all thanks for this great plugin.

    In the core capabilities I see 'Edit themes' and 'Edit theme options'

    What I'm looking to do for one particular role is to limit the core Appearance Editing capability to only include the Menu section.

    In other words to not allow Themes, Widgets, etc., only Appearance>Menus

    Thanks for any tips to do this.

    Hi,

    All mentioned menu items use the same "edit_theme_options" capability. You need to redefine 'Appearance->Menus" menu item capability in order to give access to it separately. Try to look on the "Admin Menu Editor" plugin. It offers such functionality. Pro version may be needed although.

    Yes thank you.

    Added a custom capability 'edit_menus' to a particular Role (Shop Manager).

    Using Admin Menu Editor make Appearance and Appearance>Menu require the 'edit_menus' capability.

    All other Appearance submenus require Admin capabilities.

    The catch is that Shop Manager still needs to have edit_themes and edit_theme_options enabled to have any access to Appearance.

    Thanks again.
