Hide items in left nav bar (5 posts)

    Please include an option to 'hide' items in the left nav bar. For example, I never use Posts, Media, Links, Comments or Users.

    It would be very handy to be able to 'hide' those nav bar choices so it was quicker to navigate the WP admin page.

    Thanks

    You could do this via an Admin Theme.

    Thanks esmi. That worked.

    I had never heard of WP admin themes. Learn something every day.

    WordPress is Killer.

    Another way is to totally yoink the page from the menu... for instance I never ever use the links manager... so

    // GET RID OF THE LINKS MANAGER I HAVEN"T USED IT IN YEARS
    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'voodoo_admin_menu' );
    
    function voodoo_admin_menu() {
    	remove_menu_page('link-manager.php');
    }

    added to functions.php or better yet a functionality plugin totally removes the links page from the menu

    Or for a more comprehensive plugin, try this one.
