[resolved] Featured Image metabox gets hidden when hiding Admin Menus (6 posts)

    Great and very helpful plugin!

    I am trying to deactivate the following admin menus for Editors, Contributors and Subscribers:


    But when I apply the settings it does work and hide the menus for Contributors but the Featured Image metabox for add/edit posts doesn't show even if checked in the Screen Options.

    If I Deinstall Options in Adminimize, and deactivate the plugin the Featured Image metabox works again.

    How can I fix this?

    Just to note, I have Role Scoper to manage Contributor groups to only see certain Categories.

    Hope to get help.

    if you select only the menu items, not a meta box settings, or?
    do yoj have active the cbeckbox for featured image in write post and page active for the right roles?

    In Adminimize settings, I only deactivated the menus I want to hide and I did not deactivated the Featured Image under Write options - Post.

    In short nothing is changed in the default options of Write options - Post.

    But if you will hide a Meta Box on write options, than it is important, that you active the checkboxes in this selection. The hiding of menu item have not the result, taht you hide a meta box.
    Maybe you can explaine this, maybe screenshots, that I understand better. Thanks.

    Hi Frank,

    Thanks for you response, that's actually the problem, why when I hide a Menu it will also hide the featured image. Anyhow, I resulted to using a simpler menu hider. Will just try using Adminimize again when I need more control.

    Thanks for developing and supporting this plugin!

    but this is very different. Can you send as image with hints, what you will hide in the backend?
