How to limit a sub-site admin's capabilities in a WPMU network?

Joe suggested "User Role Editor WordPress plugin" in another post. It looks great! Just one little question since it can not change role capabilities for "Administrator"

My question is how to remove some default capabilities of a sub-site admin?

The story behind the question is, on WPMU network site, once people registers a new sub-site, by default, he is the admin for this new sub-site, and I want to disable some capabilities or even not only disable but also hide all disabled capability menu links. For instance, to disable: add new pages, edit theme files, install new themes, edit menu or widget, etc.

Thanks!

    Greetings winning,

    I would watch out for the advice of that Joe guy - he is a rascally rabbit ..... lol

    What I would recommend for this is setting up a new role and making it the default role for those signing up or bettert yet using Advanced Access Manager plugin to manage other Administrators.

    Though I have not tried it myself - I think by it's description it will do the job.

    Let me know if you try it out how it goes.

    Cheers, Joe :slight_smile:
