Best plugin for removing wp-admin menu items

So today I needed a plugin in wordpress to prevent my users in a demo site from changing the password to a demo account I set up for my previews. I searched the interweb in hope to find a free solution and this what I came up with.

This is the first plugin that I tried. The name is intuitive, it should do the job properly.

Admin Menu Editor

Lets you directly edit the WordPress admin menu. You can re-order, hide or rename existing menus, add custom menus and more.

The admin looks pretty slick, seems to do just what I needed. But it did not work. At all. Tried the admin permission setting on both Profile and Users.

Then, I went on Stack Overflow. Users seemed pretty sure this would do the job.

Right from the admin, I realized it will not help me. So, no.

 

Tired, I went to something more specific in Google Search, I added the profile menu item to the query. I ended up to this.

Profiless

Profiless is a plugin that removes access to the profile page based on user role.

[hr][clear]
The admin is pretty simple. You just have the option to restrict the profile menu item on some specific roles. Just what I needed. But maybe too specific and others could have similar tasks and this plugin could not to do them.[clear]

So I recommend this plugin.

Seems to do just what I needed, and everyone else needs on administrating menu items in WordPress.
