Admin panel shows up for Editor (6 posts)

    Using WP 3.2.1. I noticed the admin panel is displaying for those who are an Editor. Is this by design for the admin panel to viewable by other than Administrator?

    same problem, just have to use "manage_options" instead of "extend_search" on add_options_page()

    The problem still exist..

    I do not understand the remarks by @geminorium ? Is that a way to solve the issue and if so can someone explain ?

    WordPress 3.4.1

    Same Problem as @Naturalrush : Search-Everything Options are visible to all Backend-Users. This setting should be only accessable to Admins.

    Is there any workaroud, until it's fixed?
    Maybe @geminirum can be more specific?

    would LOVE an update here to remove this menu item for non-admin users!

    Also, @geminorum, we were able to locate "extend_search" in the Plugin editor (/wp-admin/plugin-editor.php?file=search-everything%2Fviews%2Foptions.php&plugin=search-everything%2Fsearch-everything.php) but simply changing "extend_search" to "manage_options" did not do the trick...

    Are we missing something here?

    OK. Using some other markup we found in our functions.php file to do something similar for a different plugin, we've come up with a snippet of code that will remove the "Settings" menu for non-admins.

    Yes, this will remove the ENTIRE settings menu, which contains the Search Everything sub-menu. While this may not solve everyone's specific needs, this did solve our needs quite well.

    Place this snippet of code in the functions.php file at Dashboard >> Appearance >> Editor:

    //hide settings menu items to non administrators
    if ( is_admin() && ! current_user_can( 'administrator' ) ) {
    	add_action( 'admin_init', 'my_remove_menu_pages' );
    	function my_remove_menu_pages() {

    Does this work for you? Please let us know!
