Welcome Pack
[resolved] Emails appearing in Dashboard menu for author role (4 posts)

    Customising the emails is one of the great features of this plugin.
    However, is there any chance we can raise the role requirement so that only roles above author can see the menu item in the dashboard? We have plenty of authors that write blog posts but don't want to show the option of Emails in the dashboard menu - it makes no sense to these users / roles.
    Thanks for your time Paul.

    Find (I think) the add_submenu_page and tweak the parameters. Let me know if you need help.

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    The only reference I can find for add_submenu_page is in welcome-pack/welcome-pack-admin.php and the only instance of it is to add the Welcome Pack submenu item (under the parent Settings menu item).

    It must be in there somewhere. Hmmm... Help please :)

    It adds the menu item for roles with the "manage_options" capability. I think if you find what capability meets your requirements (via http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities), it should work.
