Limiting the admin functions of the "editor" role

Hi, I am trying to restrict the role of an editor to just do new posts and change passwords, so this is what I did :

1) Under the admin folder/pages I edited the web config file to take "editors" out from those functions that are not allowed.

However the admin page still shows all the functions available but if I click on one that is disallowed, for example blogroll then it brings up the change password function.

So it seems it is disallowing the function but still showing up on the admin page.

Any idea how I can easily fix this or what I have done wrong ?

I fixed this by also updating web/config file in the root of the web site

Also adapt the Web.sitemap in the root folder
