Control Access to Elementor Admin Menus

The Pro version of PublishPress Capabilities allows you to block access to admin menu links in the Elementor plugin. This is useful because Elementor has limited options for managing who can access the admin screens and important features.

The Elementor plugin is one of the most popular drag-and-drop page builders. With Elementor, you’re editing the site live, and simultaneously see exactly how it looks like. Elementor designs are full-responsive and come with over 40 powerful widgets.

When you first install Elementor, you'll see one top-level menu link, plus at least 9 sub-menus:

  • Settings
  • Role Manager
  • Tools
  • System Info
  • Getting Started
  • Get Help
  • Custom Fonts
  • Custom Icons
  • Go Pro
Elementor Menu Links

It is possible to control who can access these links by using the PublishPress Capabilities Pro plugin.

  • In the top-left corner of this screen, choose the role that you want to edit. In the image below, I'm going to restrict Elementor access for the “Administrator” role. If you do this, I would recommend making a copy of the Administrator role so that one role still has full Elementor access.

  • Scroll down and you can enter a red X for any Elementor menu link that you don't want users in the Administrator role to access.
  • Click “Save Changes”.
