    Not workind

    • Hi fg, are you sure you added this to the functions.php correctly as it only adds some CSS to the header of the admin section for non admins to hide the menu.

       is_admin() is a check for whether the current page is an admin page, not what permissions a user has. Instead, try using the current_user_can() function, such as current_user_can(‘administrator’). (documentation at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/current_user_can)
