    How to solve?


    Hi Nigel,

    Thanks for the information. There is a mistake in the condition that prevents single admin from blocking menu items for himself. I will include a fix to the next update.
    As a quick fix you may open user-role-editor-pro/includes/pro/classes/admin-menu-view.php and replace line #133

    $readonly_mode = (!$lib->multisite && $allowed_roles[0]=='administrator') || ($lib->multisite && !is_super_admin()); 

    with this one:

    $readonly_mode = (!$lib->multisite && $allowed_roles[0]=='administrator') || ($lib->multisite && !is_super_admin() && $allowed_roles[0]=='administrator');
