Admin Menu Editor
Adminimize plugin conflict. (2 posts)

    I have used the Adminimize (http://wordpress.org/plugins/adminimize/) plugin (To restrict access to certain menu items depending on user role) and Admin Menu Editor for a while now. Recently however they have started to conflict with each other.

    Adminimize works perfectly with both plugins activated, but fails once Admin Menu Editor is used and it's new settings are saved. Previously Adminimize blocked items then appear in the menu. If Admin Menu Editor is then deactivated, Adminimize works correctly again.

    As said above, they previously worked in harmony with each other.

    I am using WordPress 3.6.1 and the latest version of both plugins.

    Unfortunately, that's a known issue and not really something that can be fixed without (re)introducing other bugs. If you use more than one plugin to hide admin menu items, you're bound to run into a conflict sooner or later.

    When someone who has the Pro version of Admin Menu Editor encounters a problem like this, they can usually solve it by using only Admin Menu Editor to set menu items permissions and leaving Adminize menu settings at their defaults. This works because typically those settings are the only thing that leads to conflicts. Other Adminize features work fine with Admin Menu Editor active.

    I think this solution would also work with the free version of AME, but it might be harder to apply since you would have to manually set the required capabilities for each menu (instead of just ticking a couple of checkboxes).
