[resolved] Hide Widgets from Site Admins in Dashboard (3 posts)

    When I restrict a widget, as admin, I can still activate and view the widget, of course. This is expected behavior.

    But, is it expected behavior for a restricted widget to be hidden for members?

    For example, I want to have widgets specifically for my main site, but I want them restricted for other sites. The widgets on my main site are restricted but activated. As admin, I can see them. As a guest/member I cannot.

    Is there any way to just hide some widgets from site admins so they can't use them, but network admins can? Can this functionality be added to this plugin?

    Not expected behaviour, just a side effect from how I handled removing widgets at run-time. Thanks for the heads up.

    Can you try changing the final line of the plugin to:

    if ( is_admin() )
    	new RestrictAllowedWidgets;

    That should limit the effects of the restrictions to just the admin-side, rather than leaking through to the frontend. I'll push out a new version if that works okay.

    Yep, works great now!

    Once again, thank you for these plugins. They're a real life saver.
