Controlling Screen Options? (4 posts)

    Hi there, I have some custon fields and so on that I'd rather not have my contributors messing with. In fact, I don't want them to be able to edit the "screen options" at all.

    Is there any way to set a standard set up screen options and just keep people from changing it?

    WP doesn't check user capability to decide if show or hide Screens Options. So URE will not help you directly with it.
    But you can use 'screen_options_show_screen' filter to fully hide this interface element from user.
    Something like this:

    function hide_screen_options() {
      return false;
    add_filter('screen_options_show_screen', 'hide_screen_options');

    Interesting... do you know if it's possible to create a default for any user at the contributor level? Then I can hide it like you say. Then when I create a new user they will see the default that I set up?

    I know this is an old post but I'm after the same thing.

    The ability to give a certain level/user a default 'Screen Options' and better still if that was locked.
