  • Is it possible to lock or hide sections of the admin panel?

    I would like to use WordPress as a CMS and would like to lock or hide the sections “Comments,” “Blogroll,” “Presentation” and “Plugins.” I’m afraid some of my clients could possibly do something they shouldn’t in the admin panel and cause a problem that could have been prevented by not allowing them access to these sections in the first place.

    Has this ever been done or is it possible?

  • Ok, well I partially answered my own question by messing with the users! 🙂 If it’s not possible to lock or hide all those things, I can live with creating an “Editor” account for the client which hides/locks most of what I was worried about!

    Wow, that amazes me that in three weeks time there are NO answers to this. Thank goodness I figured it out on my own!

    You could edit the wp-admin/menu.php to delete those options.



    You are looking for Custom Admin Menu for WordPress.

    I’ve used the above mentioned plugin and it’s awesome but I found that it would shut itself off at random times thinking that a new plugin was installed.

    You could also get a role manager which allows you to change many different aspects of what each role can do.
