I don't want editors being able to edit a view. How can I remove all the links to the "edit view" in frontend and backend?
Thank you.


Dear Francesco,

You can add this line to functions.php in your theme:

add_filter('wpv_edit_view_link', '__return_false');

Please let me know if you are satisfied with my answer and if I can help you with any other questions you might have.



It works, thank you!


Dear Francesco

I just noticed you said for editors. Then it would be like this:

if ( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) {
  add_filter('wpv_edit_view_link', '__return_false');
