    Hi,

    Everytime I enable plugins, it also allows the user to see the plugins option in the navigation in the admin backend. Now I don't want this to happen(users can see avialble plugins and options etc) - so how can I disable this so when I activate plugins only the admin can see the options?

    Thanks

    that doesn't work as easy as you might imagine.

    some plugins have these restrictions, others have to be hacked by you to only show you the plugins backend...

    some are easily hacked with a simple "if user is siteadmin" verification before the menu code some require heavy modifications....

    Its up to you to modify anything you want, but first take a look at the modified plugins the community has "released" on wpmudev.org

    rolemanager is fine but its a per blog plugin so you can't for example disable a certain plugins backend for al blogs with it..

    Not without hacking it, no.

    But, with a slight modification it could be used for global roles.
