I want to hide or restrict access to a particular page from admin users.
That means if an admin user tried to reach a page (e.g.
System > Tools > Compilation ) he/she would see a 404 not found notice (like when you install an extension, before you log out and log back in).
I read some information about
ACL in Magento, but I'm not sure if this is the place to start.
How can I do this? I'm developing an extension for this task.
Sorry. I should have said that I'm writing an extension for this task and the extension should restrict access to both current users and future users.
