How to Use Admin Features
“Admin Features” is available in the PublishPress Capabilities plugin and allows you to hide features in the WordPress admin area and toolbar. You can decide what users see in your WordPress dashboard.
This is available in both the Free and Pro versions of PublishPress Capabilities.

On this screen, you'll be able to choose which features to hide for different user roles:
- There is a role selection dropdown in the top-left corner.
- Scroll down the screen and you can place a red X for every feature you want to hide.
The top part of the screen covers the “Admin Toolbar” feature in WordPress. Scroll down further, and you can also block access to dashboard widgets:
