Hello, I thought I'd let you know that there's an obnoxious bug with customized menu items and permissions. I want to hide (and I know to hide, not remove) the default appearance/themes page and instead create an appearance menu item that directs the user to the customized theme options page I've created, as well as all of the other sup-pages of the usual appearance item.
Unfortunately, when the appearance tab is hidden, something gets messed up with permissions and it is no longer possible to access any themes.php?page=[x.php] page, including my theme options page, the widgets page, and the menus page. For now, I'm resorting to including the default appearance page at the bottom of the menu, labeled ignore, but any better workaround or a fix would be appreciated. Plugin version 1.1.10, WP 3.4.1, by the way.
As a plugin developer myself, I know the importance of bugfixes, and the challenges they can present, but it's unfortunate when bugs diminish the usability of otherwise great plugins!
