Search for helping hands

Over the time the plugin was extended the plugin with much requirements and his solutions. But the source is not easy to maintain for me, I’m unhappy with the source. I have learned about coding, architecture etc.

Currently I search for developer there will help on dev and support the plugin. The plugin have a github repository to easy add a issue or a create a fork, pull request. Also to add issues to understand problems.

Especially the functionality for WP Multisite is currently more a hack as a solution. But is very complex, not easy to create a solution for this.

For development see this repository: https://github.com/bueltge/Adminimize The master branch is the current version and the new will leave in the v2.0 branch.

Also it is possible with version 1.7.18 to use on custom post types; hide 'unnecessary' areas on the custom post types for different roles and post types.

What does this plugin do?

The plugin changes the administration backend and gives you the power to assign rights on certain parts. Admins can activate/deactivate every part of the menu and even parts of the submenu. Meta fields can be administered separately for posts and pages. Certain parts of the write menu can be deactivated separately for admins or non-admins. The header of the backend is minimized and optimized to give you more space and the structure of the menu gets changed to make it more logical - this can all be done per user so each user can have his own settings.
