    First of all I love your plugin, thanks for having the free version.
    The “Hide other menus” section does not show one of the plugins installed. The plugin is: “WP Simple Booking Calendar”. And that is shown in the WordPress administration menu on the left. By not recognizing it, I can not leave it visible to publishers and Shops Managers, and it is one of the functions that have to be used.
    How can I make it appear?

    Thanks again and a hug.

    Hi Cosmes,

    Thanks for your kind words! The Hide Other Menus section doesn’t change user roles’ permissions, but simply removes the menu link for those user roles. This plugin can’t add access to another plugin’s page, but only remove the menu item for it, due to the way that WordPress plugins work.

    My advice would be to contact the developers of WP Simple Booking Calendar and ask them if there is a way to allow other user roles to access the page, although if they don’t have a setting for it then I suspect this will be quite difficult without making major changes to the plugin.

    To add other menus to the admin area, you could try “Admin Menu Editor”, but even if a menu is added, it probably still won’t let these other users into the page.

    Let me know if you need any more info!

    Thank you very much for your answer, I will try to do it in another way, probably giving administrator permissions to that user and hiding the options of the menu with code. Thank you very much and I wish you the best.

    No worries! The most likely permission required will be manage_options, but giving this permission to other user roles isn’t usually recommended as it tends to give them too much access to other parts of the site.

    Hi, you gave me the solution, the plugin was not visible to “Editor”. When the plugin created a page in the menu, it was only created for “manage_options”. I have edited that in the plugin code and changed it to “moderate_comments”, and everything has been fixed.
    I thank you infinitely for your help for having put me on the track of the problem. A hug.
