System Admin


Extends the admin role with a new, awesomer role called ‘Sysadmin’. This new role gives you a menu of options to hide menu and/or sub-menu items in the admin from all other users (e.g. Themes, Theme Editor, Plugin Editor, etc.) Very useful when restricting major changes or updates from clients or administrators.

Special Features

  • Disable core update
  • Disable plugin update
  • Disable theme update
  • Disable admin bar


Just deactivate and delete plugin. This will re-assign Sysadmin role as Administrator and remove all options (unhiding hidden menu items, etc.)


Activate, promote yourself, set your options, high five.

  1. Upload system-admin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Promote yourself to Sysadmin and visit System Admin, select your desired options, save changes.


Is there a premium version?

No. All that this plugin does is included in this version. Nothing hidden to be gained.

Does this plugin add redirects?

No. Simply hides the menu items. You can still access the direct URI (intentional fallback).
