*******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.

Extremely intuitive
By , for WP 3.8.1

Working with a client who wants access so they can make changes. The standard roles in WP just didn't cut it. Tried I few other plugins before this one. I created a new role started with the Administrator capabilities and then removed the one I didn't want my new role to have. BAM TESTED DONE. Now the really cool news is that I did it for one site in my WP Multi Site Network. Now I am sold!!! Wait it's free! There are two additional extensions but I just don't need those. I may but them just because I want to give these developers something for all the time they saved me creating my own Must Use Plugin!

Also running S2Members for paid subscriptions... no problems.

Thank YOU !!!

Great user access manager tool
By , for WP 2.2.3

Great Managing Tool.

However, there are still room for improvement like custom role that can be used readily for new users. e.g super user = a user that has extended capability of the admin side.

Great limited features, nice UI, but a hidden fee for extra features
By ,

I was excited with the plugin at first look, the UI looked nice. But once, I realized that for the necessary extra features you have to pay $30, uninstalled it. Also, you can only apply 5 restrictions for a free version. this is way too limited.
