Support » Plugin: Editor Menu and Widget Access » Plugin removal is incomplete

    In testing, the Editor Menu and Widget Access plugin worked as desired to give the Editor role the ability to modify Widgets, but not other site elements, via the Appearance menu. But when I disabled the plugin, the Editor role still showed the Appearance menu (which had not been visible to that role before the plugin was added), and now it included access to Themes, Customize, Menus and Background in addition to Widgets. I deleted the disabled plugin, cleared browser cache and server cache, even disabled all my other plugins, yet the Editor role still has access to all Appearance menu items. Is there something I can do to reset this? I’m very leery of installing the plugin if it continues to give access to these core functions even after what should have been complete removal.

    Good point, and thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ll release an update shortly to reset the capabilities on plugin deactivation.

    This has now been fixed in the latest update (v3.1.2). If you want to reset the capabilities to default values, just activate then deactivate the plugin.

    Note: This only removes the capability for ‘Editors’, as ‘Shop Managers’ have access to the appearance menu by default in the current version of WooCommerce.

    That nailed it — Appearance tab is now gone again for Editors after plugin deactivation. Thanks for the speedy fix.
