Trim Admin Menu


Hide menu items in the admin interface from non-admin users. It’s still possible
for them to access the corresponding pages by entering the URL directly.

This plug-in perfectly complements Admin Trim Interface, a plug-in capable of
hiding other elements of the admin interface.

Please note that the administrator isn’t affected by the changes.


  • Both the Links and Comments section are hidden from non-admin users.


Install Trim Admin Menu directly from the plug-in section in your WordPress
admin environment.


Why isn’t it possible to hide the Dashboard?

A future version of this plug-in might support it. It would be necessary
to specify what page non-admin users should be redirected to when logging in.
