Option to decide menu location and user role
Hi, I really like this plugin and how it works – makes it a lot easier to create and customise my widgets!
I noticed that you recently changed the plugin to allow Editor roles to access the widgets, and also moved it to the Pages section of the menu rather than under Appearance.
For myself, I actually much prefer it how it was before! 🙂 On my site, widgets are solely a function of the site’s design, which should therefore be accessible only by the web designer (ie. myself, the administrator) – and not by the editors. The editors only deal with content, not layout or design. I don’t want the editors being able to delete or modify any widget as that could damage or negatively alter the layout of the site.
Therefore I’d much rather have the menu located within “Appearance”, which for me is the more logical place (that’s where the “Widgets” sub-menu is already located), and also restricted to Admins only.
I know that other users of your plugin won’t like that – it’s obviously a matter of preference. Maybe there could be a setting somewhere which lets us choose this functionality for ourselves? (Both the menu location and the user role accessibility).
