Support » Plugin: WP Admin Bar Control » A good start but it can do better…

  • I installed and tested this plugin. It does what it says. But in my humble opinion, it’s missing one key feature to stand out from the crowd. It is now possible to “Hide Admin Bar for”: 1. Admin page 2. Admins and Users 3. Users only and 4. No one.

    The purpose of the last one escapes me. On the other hand, it would be a huge step in the right direction if it were possible to let the plugin do its work on a per “user” bases or at least on the base or “role”. It would be immensely powerful and very usable/useful for anyone making websites that are handed over a client. Or has multiple people working on a website in different capacities.

    A bit like this plugin which, unfortunately, hasn’t been updated for quite some time now. https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-admin-simplifier/

    Maybe this can be incorporated in your roadmap.

    Please update to 0.9.3

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Just updated to 0.9.3
    The plugin evolves in the right direction and gives a lot more possibilities now that “roles” are available. Thanks for that!

    Would it be possible to integrate the possibility to use the plugin on a per “user” base?
    It would upgrade the different ways WP Admin Bar Control can be used. (with the ability to add custom link(s) for different users). That would make it complete and very useful for client sites.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. Per User added in version 0.9.4, please update 🙂

    Hi,

    thanks for your efforts!

    I’m sorry to say though, it doesn’t work. I mean, the plugin updates but once updated it doesn’t work as it should.

    THE PLUGIN CAUSES PROBLEMS!

    * it causes a blank/white screen when logging out of a wordpress site. The login doesn’t reappear after logging out.

    * it causes a cookie problem when trying to login with a different user (Chrome/Opera …)

    * the menu item of the plugin “yummi yummi plugins” also stays blank/white when clicked on

    I guess you want is the user (any user, whatever role) to configure the “Admin Bar” separately for themselves when they are logged in. But that doesn’t make sense. It should be the Administrator of a website who should be able to configure the plugin and give access to the “Admin Bar” and certain parts of it to users on a per user base.

    I had to remove the plugin for now because it made a mess. I hope you can rectify the problems so I can re-install. Thumbs up you can solve the problems!

    Is there any way to get the version 0.9.3? That version still worked properly even though it didn’t have the “user” available.

    Thanks in advance!

    Updated, but need more tests. Added a lot of functionality. Sorry…

    No problem… Take your time.
    Better to deliver a flawless product than one with endless problems!

    I’ll re-install and check it out.

    Thanks for your efforts and time.
    Big thumbs up!
