myeasyhider

If you use WordPress to create sites and blogs for your customers, you surely need to hide some features of the administration panel to avoid huge disaster waking you up in the middle of the night!

Thanks to myEASYhider you can easily limit every user capabilities, even to users that have administrator privileges. In fact, when you need to give your client the ability to add new users, you must assign them the administrator role. At the same time you may like to limit other typical admin tasks like, to name a very important one, the ability to add or remove plugins.

Initially created for a marketing agency asking to customize their clients’ administration pages, myEASYhider is also useful to fix a bug were WordPress – under unknown circustances – keeps asking to update its a specific version while reporting that same version is installed.

With myEASYhider you can finally customize your WordPress installation at different levels:

  • Hide one or more features like, for example, the tools or the plugin menu with a mouse click;
  • Choose who will be able to use each feature, being a specific user or all users with a specific role;
  • Replace the WordPress logo and link in the login page;
  • Make the site available to registered users only – useful before publishing the site or while doing maintenance;
  • Hide submenu items, for example you can let users edit pages but not add new ones;
  • Replace the WordPress logo in the administration page header with the image you like;
  • Customize the WordPress logo and its related link in the login page;
  • Hide parts of the screen to every user with a specific role;
  • Easily hide any item added in the admin panel by a theme or any other installed plugin with the myEASYhider “ID searcher”;
  • Customize the administration pages headers and footers with your colors, logos and links.
The myEASYhider “ID searcher”

Included since version 1.0.7, the myEASYhider “ID searcher” is an useful tool when you need to find out the name of an element you want to hide.
If you are not a programmer and do not have any idea about how to get an element name, simply enable the myEASYhider “ID searcher”. Then move the mouse on the screen: when the mouse is over an element that has his own name (ID) that element will be surrounded by a red border and its name is shown on the top left of the screen.
All you need to do then is to copy the name in the clipboard and paste it in the Custom Items area, that’s it!

myEASYhider is very easy to use…
