Removing menu pages from the WordPress admin

In this tutorial, I’ll cover the remove_menu_page() and remove_submenu_page() functions, which were added in WordPress 3.1.

The first thing you need to decide is where you’re putting the code. I’ll assume you’re either dropping this in your theme’s functions.php file or one of your plugin files.

1. Removing top-level menu pages

Usage

remove_menu_page( $menu_slug );

Examples

<?php
function remove_menus(){
  
  remove_menu_page( 'index.php' );                  //Dashboard
  remove_menu_page( 'edit.php' );                   //Posts
  remove_menu_page( 'upload.php' );                 //Media
  remove_menu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=page' );    //Pages
  remove_menu_page( 'edit-comments.php' );          //Comments
  remove_menu_page( 'themes.php' );                 //Appearance
  remove_menu_page( 'plugins.php' );                //Plugins
  remove_menu_page( 'users.php' );                  //Users
  remove_menu_page( 'tools.php' );                  //Tools
  remove_menu_page( 'options-general.php' );        //Settings
  
}
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'remove_menus' );
?> 

2. Removing sub-menu pages

Usage

 remove_submenu_page( $parent_slug, $menu_slug );

Examples

 <?php
function remove_menus(){

 remove_submenu_page( 'themes.php', 'customize.php' );

}

add_action( 'admin_menu', 'remove_menus' );
?>
