Hide menu item not working in ACF 5

  • Hi there,

    I have 2 users, one called admin (admin) and the other called nic (editor).

    When I place the required code from here to hide the ACF admin menu from the ‘nic’ user, including updating the array to enable the admin user only, the ‘nic’ user can still see the ACF admin menu item.

  • Hi, I’m experiencing the same problem BUT it’s only happening when I add the code featured here:

    into my CHILD THEME functions.php.
    This problem does not occur when the code is placed in the parent theme’s functions.php

    Could you let me know if you’re using a child theme?

  • No I am not using a child theme.

    The function is actually working for me now. I am now running ACF 5.03, but am not sure if the updates fixed my issue or not.

  • function remove_acf(){
      remove_menu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=acf' ); 
    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'remove_acf',100 );

    I made this way…

    add_filter('acf/settings/show_admin', '__return_false')

    really not working

  • Here’s what I did, since most of the time there are multiple admins on the site but I don’t want any besides myself editing the Custom Fields:

    add_filter('acf/settings/show_admin', 'my_acf_show_admin');
    function my_acf_show_admin($show) {
    	// provide a list of usernames who can edit custom field definitions here
    	$admins = array( 
    	// get the current user
    	$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    	return (in_array($current_user->user_login, $admins));
  • Anybody else having problems using the filters?
    There is no reaction and the menu still available
