Support » Fixing WordPress » Plugins Still Showing Despite User Role Is Author
8 years, 5 months ago
I wanted to set up an author account on my blog for someone else. Testing this account, I could see that some plugins are still showing up in the dashboard menu:
WP-ServerInfo & WP-Useronline:
WordPress Reports (for Google Analytics):
Also, the “Settings” menu is shown with the ability to configure the plugin “Search Phrases” ( http://gluehwein.junkies.ws/2006/10/16/plugin-search-phrases-anzeige-der-letzten-suchbegriffe/ ).
Why is that?
Shouldn’t they all be invisible for the author role?
How can I fix that?
I just installed Akismet 2.2 which is causing some trouble.
Could that be the culprit?
Akismet was updated to 2.2.1 and seems to work fine now.
Still, the above plugins are shown as author.
Any help would be nice.
At least, FeedStats-de has a settings option which user levels shall be able to see the menu. Changed it.
OK, it was all about the user level in “add_submenu_page” and “add_options_page”. I set it higher than author – and now everything is fine.
