[resolved] hide certain widget areas in the widget menu on the back end based on the user's (5 posts)

    What I'm trying to do is hide certain widget areas in the widget menu on the back end based on the user's role. Not hide all widgets, but just certain widget areas.

    I'd like to let the editor mess around with certain plugins, but not others. Some are really important, and include opt-in forms where one change in the opt-in html could break the form. The goal is to connect a couple of empty widget areas to templates. That way if the editor wants to put a widget on the sidebar of a page, he could just put a widget in let's say "custom-sidebar-1" from the widget menu, and then assign the post or page to the template "custom-sidebar-1" and he just made his own sidebar.

    The plugin is awesome, but I can't find a way to make specific widget areas disappear for the editor.

    Any ideas?

    I am still having this problem. I want to hide certain widgets from the administrator while I am the Super Admin. Everything works properly except when I try to disable the theme-based widgets. I am using Prima theme and when it comes to disabling the prima widgets, it is as if i had left them enabled...nothing changes.

    I tried disabling plugins, adding new users, changing the roles around and nothing works. I cannot disable the Prima widgets from the back end. How can I send you a screenshot so you can see what I mean? Everything works perfectly with this plugin, other than what I mentioned. Please help.
