Best control panel customization solution

A little overwhelming and hard to navigate. Would be nice if it remembered your page scroll position after saving.

Does its complex job well though!

Quick Way to hide admin menu for certain Roles!
By , for WP 4.3.1

I installed this and within 10 minutes was able to remove a lot of menu options from the back end admin menu. Whats cool is i can add blocks to hide that werent included as long as it has a class or id i can use to select.

I am using this plugin along with the User Role Editor plugin.

I had to give manage_option capability for "subscribers" to use a certain plugin which also gave those users access to the options settings. I used this plugin to hide all those links from them.

IMPORTANT:
This plugin just hides the link, if the user typed in the url they can still access those pages, so if you want to completely prevent access you will have to do more.

I added a block of code in the functions.php that detects the users capability, checks which page is view with the pagenow then using wp_redirect send them to another page.
something similar to this:

Very useful plugin!
By , for WP 4.2.2

It's very comprehensive and extensive but also very user friendly.

Great if you want to allow regular users to use wp-admin and contribute but restrict what they see/access.

Nice features like import/export and complete/soft uninstall.

Has some minor bugs, it's tricky to make your own IDs or classes from elements/tags work at first but I've been using this plugin for months with no complaints.

It doesn't do everything I need to admin a WP site with multi role users but there's no plugin that does it all. Adminimize is part of a set of tools I use and does its part well.

Great Plugin But will it be updated?
By , for WP 3.7

Hi,
I see that this plugin has not been updated for about 6 months now. I want to use this in a clients project but am concerned whether it will become incompatible with future wp releases because it hasn't been updated or set by plugin authors to be compatible with current version. I'd greatly appreciate if the authors or anyone knowledge can tell me whether I'd be safe using this for a high end client's wp admin dashboard management.
Thanks

Great plugin

Thanks for your excellent work Frank. One thing that IMHO is a bit problematic it the length of settings page. Maybe it would be a good idea to use separate tab for each section? Thanks and keep up good work.

Great plugin!

A great idea!
For website with a lot of custom posts, the edit page, is a little bit confusing.
I suggest, after saving the options of a section, to come back in the same scrolling position. Or make the tab closed, so we could open only the one one which we want to work on.
Moreover I can't see, with wp 3.5.1, where to hide the "update suggestion string"

Great plugin

Not the MOST user friendly interface, nor the perfectly debugged, but great to use and easy. Thanks
