Features

Hide menus from roles or users

Change menu permissions with just a couple of clicks. Click a role, uncheck the menu items that you want to hide, and check the ones that you want to show. You can also change permissions for individual users. For example, you could hide a menu from everyone except yourself, or give a user access to a specific admin page without changing their role.

Organize the menu with drag and drop

Make WordPress easier to use by moving frequently used menu items to the top. You can also move menu items from one submenu to another, or to the main menu. Want a top-level link to “Add New Post” or to a specific plugin? You can do that. Got an unruly plugin that puts its admin page in the wrong place? Move it to “Settings” instead.

Choose from over 600 menu icons

The plugin comes with a large collection of icons from the Dashicons and FontAwesome icon fonts. You can upload your own PNG or GIF icons through the Media Library, or enter the icon URL manually. You can also add icons to submenu items.

Change menu colors

Edit the background, text, icon, and highlight colors. You can apply your changes to the entire admin menu, or customize the colors of individual items.

Create new menu items

You can add your own links to the admin menu. You can also make a custom menu that embeds the contents of a post or page in the WordPress admin. Finally, it’s possible to create non-clickable items, which can be useful for things like section headers in complex admin menus.

Make menus open in a new tab or an iframe

Lets say you’re building a site for a non-technical client and you want to make a tutorial page or an external service look like it’s part of WordPress. The “Open in: Frame” option can help with that. It will display the linked page in a borderless frame. For completeness, a “new window” option (i.e. target="_blank") is also included.

Import and export menu settings

Export your admin menu configuration to a file, then import it on another site.

Hide plugins

Hide individual entries on the “Plugins” page. As with menu items, you can hide them from everyone, or only from specific roles or users.

Prevent people from deleting important users

Sometimes you have to give someone administrator access, but you don’t want them to accidentally delete other administrators. This plugin lets you hide certain users from the list on the “Users -> All Users” page. Hidden users can’t be edited or deleted by normal users.

Edit the Admin Bar

The optional Toolbar Editor add-on lets you customize the Admin Bar, which is also known as the WordPress Toolbar. You can hide toolbar items, change their order with drag & drop, rename items, add new links, and more.

What People Are Saying About This Plugin

“Your plugin is outstanding and the support is even better. This gives us exactly what we need to have custom dashboard control of our membership sites. I highly recommend this tool for anyone who is looking to bypass WordPress defaults without bogging down your site. You won’t find a better solution anywhere else.”

— Jeff L

“This is a great plugin! We purchased the upgrade to be able to use the iframe feature in our setup, and had questions about a customization that were answered super quickly and Janis was extremely helpful — definitely recommend this plugin and him as a developer to anyone.”

— Kim Stuart

“Have used this plugin on every client site. It works really well.”

— Luke Cavanagh, WordPress Core contributor

“Wow. This plugin has significantly reduced the anxiety level of dealing with the WordPress dashboard after installing plugins that muck it up with unnecessary clutter. Seriously, I own my dashboard again. The interface for this plugin is excellent and intuitive. Thank you!”

— Jeremy Weston

“This plugin is absolutely fantastic. While the free version is great, I purchased the Pro version to allow setting up the admin area based on user roles (the tool bar add-on which came bundled with the Pro version is fantastic as well!).

Now I can rest easy knowing that a user won’t perform a critical task (i.e. updating a plugin without first backing up or ensuring version compatibility, locking themselves out, disabling or crippling functionality, etc) while maintaining a clean area which they can feel comfortable and secure in without worry of breaking things or being overwhelmed.”
