Modifying Admin Menu (5 posts)

    I would like to know the easiest method (preferably via a plugin) to remove certain menu items from the admin for certain user roles.

    For example I would like to remove Comments (edit-comments.php) and manage (edit.php) menu from users with the role 'Contributor'.

    I believe you can do that with the Role Manager plugin.

    Here's a version of that plugin known to work in 2.1:

    I tried with the Role Manager plugin first. It is a very good plugin or use management.
    Unfortunately It does not let me remove the items from the menu.

    You could give the Custom Admin Menu a try.

    I tried that as well, it is a bit buggy on 2.1 and also It does not let me have different menu for different roles.

    So far the method I could use which is not a very clean way is to remove the innerHTML of the IDs of unwated divs using javascript. I hope there is a better way than this.
