The Profile Features Screen

The “Profile Features” option in PublishPress Capabilities allows you to clean up the “Profile” screen” for WordPress user roles.

This screenshot below is a preview of what the “Profile” screen looks like on many WordPress sites. You have to scroll down a long way to see the whole image. This “Profile” area is used as a dumping ground for the settings of many different plugins.

Controlling Profile Features in WordPress

The “Profile Features” screen allows you to block all of the elements on the “Profile” screen. In the image below, I've chosen the “Administrator” role and I'm preventing users in this role from seeing anything in the “Personal Options” role.

In this next screenshot, I've created a much cleaner version of the “Profile” screen.

This feature does require that a user is in a role before the plugin can find the relevant items on the “Profile” screen. If you choose a role with no users, you will see this message: “There are no users in this role. To modify features on the “Profile” screen, please select a role with users.”
