I am using Platform Pro for my theme and my site is a multi-author site. This theme has a lot of features which I do not want authors to be using because they may basically alter how the site looks like. So I tried to "declutter" the author write panel and tried removing some of the Platform Pro Settings (i.e options to insert ads to their posts and remove page sidebars) using Adminimize but to my surprise Adminimize is not listing these features to be removed.
(Basically, I'd like the author write panel to be just a simple one - "quick press simple" to be exact)
I have tried deactivating and then activating the plugin to somehow "reboot" it to complete its list but still the same. I also tried WP-CMS Post Control but the same result. Can anyone suggest any other workaround (hopefully another plug in). I hate to go through the theme's editor because it is sooo complicated. Thanks.
