I have been building out a WordPress install for a hosting client. For the most part I will be managing their website, but they want the ability to upload and install themes and plugins themselves.
I have the install just about ready for them, but have 4 items that I haven't been able to come up with a solution for. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
1. I want to hide the WP Admin bar on the front side of the website when the client is logged in. I know this option can be set in the user profile, but I'd like to do it on a global basis so it would be hidden for any users add automatically. Currently I'm using a plugin called Global Hide Toolbar which is working but I'm thinking this can be done through code (maybe in the functions.php file) rather than having to use a plugin.
2. I'm using a few plugins to manage the website that I don't want to show on the Installed Plugins page. I'm using a combination of User Role Editor and Admin Menu Editor Pro to create a new user role and hide/restrict access to certain things, but there doesn't see to be a way to "hide" plugins from the listing. Again, maybe this is something that could be added to the functions.php?
3. On the Post and Page editor pages, you can display the "Author" box which has a drop down menu to select the Author you want the Post or Page to be published by. I would like to remove the standard "Administrator" role from this selection. So myself, or anyone with a full Admin roll, won't show in the drop down. My client is using a modified Editor role that was created using the URE plugin, so if there was a way to just hide any user with the Admin role, that would be perfect.
4. Lastly, I want to limit the file size that can be uploaded through the Media Library. Right now my host allows a 50MB file to be uploaded. Changing the php.ini file to be 2MB would be possible, but it would also decrease the upload size for themes and plugins. I want to make sure they don't have limitations on those uploads.
BTW, I asked this last question as a separate post yesterday, just thought I'd include it again just in case anyone else had an idea.
Thanks again in advance for any help,
