How to hide but not disable? (6 posts)

    Is there a way to hide something from certain users without disabling it?

    For example, I am using the WP to Twitter plugin to auto-tweet posts. I don't want that to show up for all authors on their New Post screen, so I have restricted it to show only for admin using the additional fields boxes.

    But because I restricted it, WP to Twitter won't autotweet anymore. Can I hide this widget on the backend without disabling it?

    What are your options for 'the lowest user group that can send Twitter updates'? Those options should be completely separate; whether users can view the options shouldn't have any impact on whether they can Tweet.

    I assumed that as well, but it doesn't seem to be the case. WP to Twitter settings are correct, and it didn't stop autotweeting all authors until i installed Adminimize and blocked restricted the WP to Twitter box in New Post.

    Well, that's the problem. Removing the panel entirely will prevent tweeting, because the key variables aren't getting passed on saving.

    Right, so I'm trying to figure out a way to hide certain backend widgets for some roles without disabling the widgets' functionality.

    In this case, you'll need to hide it using CSS, probably. It needs to be present.
