Hi Luke,

Historically a user with ‘manage_network_users’ capability is a superadmin for the User Role Editor under WordPress multisite. I see that in rare cases as yours it should be changed and I will do it with one of the next update.

Workaround – take a code below, insert it into the separate .php file and place that file into wp-content/mu-plugins/ folder:


add_action('plugins_loaded', 'remove_ure_from_network_menu');

function remove_ure_from_network_menu() {
  if (current_user_can('manage_network_plugins')) {  
  remove_action('network_admin_menu', array($GLOBALS['user_role_editor'], 'network_plugin_menu'));
