Support » Fixing WordPress » hide manage-tab in the admin area:

  • hi…the following post shows how to hide the manage-tab in the admin area.
    first i have done it manually in the wp-admin/menu.php
    this works fine, but i will understand what going on! can someone explain what “2” mean?

    $menu[10] = array(__(‘Manage’), 2, ‘edit.php’);

    and the plugin-idea, i can’t get it working!
    Plugin Name: Unmanage Posts
    Description: Require manage_posts capability to manage posts
    Author: Owen Winkler
    Version: 1.0
    Author URI:
    add_action(‘admin_menu’, ‘my_admin_menu’);
    add_filter(‘capabilities_list’, ‘my_caps_list’);
    // Redefine some menu cap requirements:
    function my_admin_menu() {
    // Make the menu variables accessable here:
    global $menu, $submenu;
    $submenu[‘edit.php’][5] = array(__(‘Posts’), ‘manage_posts’, ‘edit.php’);
    // Define a new capability for the Role Manager to use:
    function my_caps_list($caps) {
    $caps[] = ‘manage_posts’;
    return $caps;

    what have i done wrong?
