Solve a "possible conflict" detected by Nav Menu Rules

This message appears on a site:
Nav Menu Roles has detected a possible conflict with the following functions or classes: ClientDash_Core_Page_Settings_Tab_Menus. Please see the FAQ for more information and possible resolution.

Here is the FAQ url:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/nav-menu-roles/faq/

It doesn't cover the error message or have a link to another site for further notes/details.

The functionality needed is to create two new roles so that a small group of non-technical users can add/modify users, and another group of more technically advanced users have access to other backend capabilities, and then restrict other Dashboard-level access.

Except for these messages which are cryptic and point to a potential instability, Nav Menu Roles does the job.

If you can help resolve the warning message, that would be terrific.

If you can recommend another plugin to do the job at least as well, that would also be very welcome.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi @Joe, hope you're doing well today! :slight_smile:

    In regards to the error message you posted:

    Nav Menu Roles has detected a possible conflict with the following functions or classes: ClientDash_Core_Page_Settings_Tab_Menus. Please see the FAQ for more information and possible resolution.

    I take it you have the "Client Dash" plugin installed on your site?

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/client-dash/

    It sounds like there's a part of the code for that plugin that Nav Menu Roles detects that it may have trouble with.

    Given the description of the functionality you're looking for though:

    The functionality needed is to create two new roles so that a small group of non-technical users can add/modify users, and another group of more technically advanced users have access to other backend capabilities, and then restrict other Dashboard-level access.

    It sounds like we're working in the Dashboard, rather than on the front-end. Would something like this suit your needs better:

    Please advise,
    Michael

    Admin Menu Editor Pro did the trick with managing Dashboard menu items for custom roles. Thanks for the suggestion.

    It does not offer the ability to hide Dashboard widgets, like the WordPress News and Recent Activity. What would you use to control the visibility of these items, based on role?

    By the way, we've tried Adminimize and didn't find it to be reliable for this use, unfortunately. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks again!

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
