    Greetings,

    I found a previous post that you disabled this option to delete the default roles but were going to enable this feature in the settings so it can be done. I need this feature too. I make ecom sites that only need admin, shop manager and customer roles. Everything else is not needed.

    Please let me know if this can be done with your plugin.

    Hi,

    It is one time operation. So create wp-content/mu-plugins folder, create there remove_built_in_roles.php file ant copy/paste code below to that file:

    
    <?php
    add_action('admin_menu', 'remove_built_in_roles');
    
    function remove_built_in_roles() {
        global $wp_roles;
    
        $roles_to_remove = array('subscriber', 'contributor', 'author', 'editor');
    
        foreach ($roles_to_remove as $role) {
            if (isset($wp_roles->roles[$role])) {
                $wp_roles->remove_role($role);
            }
        }
    }
    
    

    It will remove all built-in roles except ‘administrator’ from your WordPress.

    After you will see that roles were removed you may delete this file from mu-plugins folder.
