How to Hide Unnecessary Items From WordPress Admin with Adminimize

Hey there and thanks for watching WPBeginner. Today you’ll learn how to hide unnecessary items from WordPress admin with adminimize. If you have a multi author WordPress site or a site for clients, then you might want to simplify the admin area for them by hiding things they don’t need to deal with. With adminimize you can create different interfaces based on roles and capabilities for your site. After installing and activating the plugin, we’ll go to setting–>adminimize to configure. Here is the mini menu of all the items you can customize.

The admin bar changes how this bar here is shown for all your users. You can see how each option correlates with the bar like the wp-logo is this here, and these items are the sub items under the logo so you can check deactivate for any or all of your users. The backend options allows you to set global options for everyone. Global options lets you deactivate certain areas for specific users roles. The menus option are all these items over here in the admin area and I can configure for different roles. Here I can change all the post items that are seen.

I can deactivate any of them for a user role. Same with a page, same with links options With widgets I can deactivate any widget for any user role and they won’t be able to see them or use them. Same with the nav menu option it hides different selections to use in the menu. And the set theme allows you to set the theme admin color for each of your users.

Down here we can import or export all the settings that we just set to use on other sites. And if you ever want to stop using this plugin, it’s a good idea to deinstall options first to safely reset your database. Just deleting the plugin might not reset everything.
