Hide custom menu items based on user roles
The amount of time I wish I had known this plugin existed, oh boy!
I was searching for something like this for an other blog of mine some months ago... I didn't find it. Today I stumbledupon it by accident while searching for an other plugin.
This is what I needed in the past and is what I need now.
Thanks Kathy, for making this plugin! Made my day;)
This plugin is great because it does what it promises :-)
I use BuddyPress, which is terrific for managing a multi-user site, but a bit of a pain when it comes to adding in non BP components to a menu, or direct linking to BP components such as specific docs. While the display of actual BP components is automatically conditional based on logged in/out, it didn't give me a way to resolve this for anything else. The "Nav Menu Roles" plug-in not only fixed this instantly, it was super-easy to install, and required NO configuration. It's options simply showed up automatically as part of the native menu configuration options in Dashboard -> Appearance -> Menus when I select/add menu options. What a terrific plug-in. As her web site suggests, the plug-in's author, Kathy, really is awesome :D Thanks a bunch for sparing me even more gray hairs than I've already earned trying to solve this.
This plugin is awesome! It is great if you have a wholesale website and don't want guest users to be able to access the cart or checkout pages. The Woocommerce Extension, Catalog Visibility Options doesn't have options for hiding parts of the menu, so without this plugin, I wouldn't have been able to get the wholesale e-commerce site running at all!
Overall, this plugin seamlessly integrates into your menu options and is very easy to use, plus it has a variety of options for visibility!
Does exactly what it says: hides menu items based on user role.
Hide menu items, not prevent pages from loading.
Has hooks that allow use of your custom functions based on keywords you add to the "Access Role" check box array, that's above and beyond.
Exactly what I needed. Works perfectly with my membership system. I've been looking fot this one for months! Made my year! Awesome!
That what i need.
I love the way the plugin is set-up and integrated in WordPress.
However, to make it secure the authorizations should also be checked at the runtime of every page. Right now, if you know the exact url, you can still access the pages you want to visit.
Works great, smoothly implemented, easy to operate like everyone else has said.
