In the WordPress dashboard on the users page if on filtering by a certain user role I don't want the parent Users menu to be highlighted - this is because I am going to link to that from another menu.
Is it possible to do this? I have attempted to do it using the parent_menu filter but this doesn't work when trying to unhighlight the standard dashboard parent menus, I can do it if it isn't a standard one such as my own post type, but not users.php
I have attempted all the answers in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2308569/manually-highlight-wordpress-admin-menu-item with no luck.
Is there anyway to achieve this or does WordPress simply not take the parent_file filter into account when setting it's own active menu items for core menu pages?
