Remove admin menu Item for particular users in WordPress

Not everyone who logs into the site backend needs access to every available admin menu items.
It can cause several problems for a person who does not understand. To reduce such cases add the snippet to your function.php file in your child theme.

function wps_remove_admin_menu_items_for_user() {

// Here you can change the 'administrator' role to your desired role 
   if( current_user_can( 'administrator' ) ){

       remove_menu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=page' );    


add_action('admin_menu', 'wps_remove_admin_menu_items_for_user' );

In the above function first, we are checking the current user role.

However, if it matches the condition then with the help of remove_menu_page we are removing the page menu. Here you can add any desired post type.
