  • Hi there!

    Useful little plugin (:

    However, it’s a royal pain to tick off hundreds of checkboxes, one by one.

    I’ve come up with a bit of javascript to toggle the entire column by clicking on the column header. There where a few css selector issues that made this really awkward to implement. Your containers for the options are all using the same ‘poststuff’ id. This is a nono, css ids must be unique. I would recommend generating the ids based on the options area, so for Dashboard options, the id would be poststuff-dashboard-options, Menu Options id becomes poststuff-menu-options, etc… perhaps use something less generic for the prefix… adminimize-menu-options?

    The other issue is that for some custom user roles, such as the ones created by plugins, don’t always match up with the name of the checkboxes. For the built in roles, it’s pretty easy to select the checkboxes based on the column header… for example, the ‘Deactivate for Administrator’ column, I can grab the administrator role by removing ‘Deactivate for’ and the break tag, convert to lower case and replace spaces with underscores, be left with just the ‘adminitrator‘ role and match all the mw_adminimize_disabled_admin_bar_administrator_items[] checkboxes. If you’re using, for example, BackWPup, you get a column ‘Deactivate for BackWPup jobs helper’, and the checkboxes are named mw_adminimize_disabled_admin_bar_backwpup_helper_items[]. The ‘backwpup_helper‘ part of the name doesn’t line up with ‘backwpup_jobs_helper‘.

    I’ve posted the necessary js (mod-adminimize.js) here:

    In my functions.php I’m loading the js like this:

    function my_enqueue($hook) {
        if( 'settings_page_adminimize/adminimize' == $hook )
            wp_enqueue_script( 'my_custom_script', CHILDURI . '/js/mod-adminimize.js', array( 'jquery' ) );
    add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'my_enqueue' );

    With the above tweaks to css selectors, the js could be condensed to about half a dozen lines.

    I would love to see something like this implemented in a future release of Adminimize.

    Hope this helps (:

    Hello and many thanks for this idea!

    Currently is the solution not usable, it works only for the engslish strings. Maybe you can enhance this, that it also works on all translations. The first var in the script define the areas, but check this only on the english language strings.

    Thanks a lot and I see forward for a idea from your side.

    Yea, it’s very specific to this project I’m currently working on. I really just posted this to server as inspiration for others.

    I’m currently under the gun for a very tight deadline, so I can’t really do anything else with this right now… But at some point in the future (in a month or two?) I could take a stab at integrating this into the plugin.

    This is nice and also usable in one or two months. I hope the plugin live longer 😉 I have also to much topics and it is realy hard for me to support all request and questions.
