    Loving this plug in.

    Any chance for some instructions on how to hide the dashboard from subscribers AND contributors (and editors, but only if you can)? =)

    Hi Kevin –

    Glad you like the plugin. 🙂

    The instructions for hiding the dashboard from subscribers, contributors and editors are included in the FAQ tab on the plugin’s page here on, and in the readme.txt file that comes with the plugin download.

    Q. How do I change this to hide the Dashboard link, Tools menu, Personal Options, and Help options from other roles besides Subscriber?

    A. To hide these from other roles, you will need to edit the plugin in a plain text editor and make the following changes:

    Version 2.1:

    Support for removing other admin menu links has been removed from this version (see response to question above).

    Just read it. But apparently the new WP Hide Dashboard version 2.1 doesn’t support removing for other groups besides subscriber.

    Any ideas :{ ?

    @moogle: Did you read the answer to the first question in the FAQ? It tells you what to do:

    Q. Why did you remove support for other roles from Version 2.1?

    I removed support for menu items for roles other than Subscriber. WP Hide Dashboard is a simple plugin, and was built for the Subscriber role. While I appreciate that some users need this type of functionality for other roles, most don’t require it, so I don’t want to bloat the plugin with unnecessary code for the majority of users.

    If you need to hide admin sidebar menu links from roles other than Subscriber, I recommend using the Admin Menu Editor plugin to accomplish that goal. Currently it only removes links in the admin sidebar menu. The plugin author has indicated they may add support for removing admin bar menu links in a future version.
