    Im having an issue here with the WP Admin menu and im hoping someone can shed some light on the problem and help me to fix it. I have a site that has been created by me for a customer at http://www.dsawempire.me. This site uses WP e-Commerce plugin to show the product page.When a user registers, their role is set to subcriber, this role does not allow them the correct privleges to create a new post from the WP Admin menu (the black bar across the top). So i decided to set the new user role to contributor (next step above subcriber) This step gives the user to many permissions. They are able to add new products.(Not a good thing). I have a link of a jpg showing the dropdown and the items i need to have removed.

    If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great. I dont believe that a different theme is the answer simply because this plugin or theme does not reference this menu bar. this is a wordpress thing if im not mistaken.Im also open to suggestions as far as maybe removing the WP Admin bar all together and giving the user a different way of creating a post. Whatever is the easiest.

    Install a role management plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-role-editor/

    Hi, you can use plugin Hide Admin Menu to do that. This plugin allows you to hide admin bar items based on user role.
