    I have found the way to disable the access to a users own profile page by selecting admin menu button from the user role editor. This disabled access to a users own user profile editing page. It also deleted the profiles tab from the left menu, but it did not delete the edit my profile link from the admin right top dropdown menu…
    How do I delete this from the users admin environment? Because right now it has the link “edit my profile” on there, you can click it but it just goes to dashboard. I want it to be gone completely for the user.


    URE does not hide this admin bar menu item by default.
    Add this code to your active theme functions.php file or setup it as a must-use plugin to change default behavior:

    add_filter('ure_do_not_remove_from_admin_bar', 'ure_do_not_remove_from_admin_bar', 10, 1);
    function ure_do_not_remove_from_admin_bar( $exclusions ) {
        foreach( $exclusions as $key=>$item ) {
            if ( $item==='edit-profile' ) {
                unset( $exclusions[$key] ) ;
        return $exclusions;

    Thank you.
