It works but need some fixes
By , for WP 3.7.1

First this is something great and I might have done it if it were not you. I appreciate your hard work.

The problem occurs as soon as the demo user gets the 'manage_options' capability. This is because the is_demo_user() assumes that demo user cannot have manage_options capability. I used the following code to fix it:

private function is_demo_user() {

  $current_user = wp_get_current_user();

  if ( empty( $current_user ) )
    return false;

  global $demovars;

  return ($current_user->data->user_login == $demovars['username']);


With these I got the Settings menu on dashboard. However it had all the sub-menu items so I had to remove all except one of my plugin.

No config reference

There is no config reference, then it is not working.
