Admin Menu Editor
Question about users (2 posts)

    Hi,

    Can you confirm that the free version will change what ALL users will see, regardless of their hierarchy? (Administrator vs Editor)?

    In other words, in order for me to keep all menu options visible to the Administrator, but use the free plugin to hide menus from another user account (ie. Editor), I need to purchase the Pro version?

    Or perhaps this may work??
    If I login to user #2 (currently set to Editor), and remove menus. Will those menu items also be removed from the Administrator?

    Just trying to wrap my brain around how this would work for one client that has one Admin that needs to see everything (me) ... and for the client themselves this is where I need to hide menus.

    thanks

    It is possible to hide menus from Editors but leave them visible to Administrators; you just need to set up the permissions correctly. It's actually pretty easy. As an example, lets say you wanted to hide Posts -> Categories from everyone except the Administrator. Here's how:

    1. Go to the menu editor and find the menu item in question.
    2. Click the white downwards triangle next to the menu title to display menu properties.
    3. Set "Required capability" to "administrator" (any other capability that only admins have would also work).
    4. Click "Save Changes".

    And that's it. Now only Administrators can see that menu.

    By the way, the Administrator is the only role that can access this plugin, so an Editor would not be able to remove any menus.
