One of my most-installed plugins.
By , for WP 3.9.1

At the start of every WordPress project I install a standard set of tried and tested plugins that I'd struggle to replace. This is one of them.

Poor Support
By , for WP 3.9.1

Support is poor. An update included changes in hooks, which affected the capabilities. Upon contacting support, Vasyl told me it requires too much work to fix the bug in his own plugin, but yet tried to tell me to buy premium. He also referred to it as a "weird" caching problem with W3TC, when it's not. The plugin path is excluded from W3TC. This is a straightforward issue with the hook. He also wants to dismiss it because I'm the only one so far who's told him of this issue. Perhaps I'm the only one who's contacted him so far, who uses the plugin in the way I do, and is experiencing this issue. Terribly dismissive and washed his hands of it.

The tool looks very nice, it might take time to fine tune all of that but capabilities are strong.

BUT I was actually unable to keep this plugin installed : I lost Admin role ! :-/

I saw a workaround but it seems that it will not work every time... I do not understand php and this workaround is not for me.
I hope there will be a fix soon, then please let me know, I would be glad to test.

Another point that should be changed : when you create a now profile, you do not have access to admin menu options, I do not understand why - it would be useful to define minimum admin access for day to day work.

*******If you are looking for a user/role/capability management tool, start with this one! This just might be the only thing you need. I deleted TWO different plugins and downloaded this one and it did the job PERFECTLY******

This is by far the BEST role management plugin! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I just spent HOURS looking for a plugin that can customize role/user capabilities AND manage access to dashboard options.

I spent so much time researching and since I'm no coder (yet), I didn't know how to customize other plugins to get the results I wanted.

I downloaded MEMBERS plugin by Justin Tadlock which was great but it didn't let me hide dashboard options. I downloaded another plugin to do that but that removed ALL access to the dashboard which was not good for my use. I own a site where I hire others to do some of the work. I want them to be able to login and make post and have access to media but not to other people's posts or know how many other employees I have, their names, and their work.

I finally found this plugin and within minutes achieved the results I was looking for. This plugin gives you so much customization power that it literally IS THE BEST USER/ROLE/CAPABILITY MANAGEMENT PLUGIN.

I love this. It's so great that I went to the trouble of signing up here just so I can rate it!

Thanks Again:) ***please ALWAYS offer it for FREE***

Just doesn't work, so useless
By , for WP 3.8.1

I realize there's a paid version and the limited function of the free version. But the free version doesn't even perform the functions as advertised.

This plugin kept me from spending HOURS figuring out how to restrict certain plugin menus for specific user roles. Absolutely FANTASTIC plugin!!

This tool is CRUCIAL for ANY business running WP
By ,

If you outsource or delegate work but you do not want to give access to all the nitty gritty inside your site...just install this plugin and create completely customized user roles.

This is awesome! I am using it on all my sites now.

Exactly what I was looking for
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've always found this sort of plugin to be quite buggy in the past but this one works perfectly. By far the best role/menu customisation plugin I've used.
