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 !!!

Works well out of the box

I've tried this outstanding plugin in an experimental site with around 60 active plugins, many related to admin functions, and didn't find any problems of compatibility. Great work!

5 out of 5 for support and service
By , for WP 3.8.1

OK, so the plugin had a few new version teething problems, nothing is perfect in this fast growing techy world of ours, but the service and support given was fantastic.

Also reinforces that the onus of making backups us is with the WP owners, so that no issue is catastrophic, certainly learned my lesson there.

Best admin/access plugin around, best support as well.

Thank you for all your help Vasyl.

Outstanding Support
By , for WP 3.8.1

Still figuring out all of the details. Had a minor issue with a Parse Error when purchasing and installing the Extension. Emailed the developer, and they responded within 30 min. They uploaded a "fixed" version, and all worked great.

They then responded quickly to multiple emails regarding further ideas, and suggestions. I'm much looking forward to the new work that is coming on this plugin, including future extensions.

Very, very impressive for a free plugin. I would gladly have paid premium to gain this kind of support from the developer.

Solid work!!!!

The best WordPress plugin for permissions.
It has minor bugs and imperfections but it has excellent support.
Thx Vasyl.

I don't know where I would be without this plugin. Love it!
By , for WP 3.8

I have been using this plugin since about 2010. So, I've had quite a bit of experience with it. And since I'm a developer building sites for clients, I needed something I could count on and use where I could restrict access to many various areas of the site (to insure that plugins don't accidentally get deleted or updated unknowingly, same for themes, block access to areas that could allow someone to do something they shouldn't, etc.).

I literally don't know where I would be or what I would do without this plugin. It's a lifeline plugin for me. It allows me to know that what I build for a client won't become destroyed or blow up due to a client's accidental visit and tampering into an area of the website that could be dangerous. Of course, some clients are provided full access, but having the ability to discuss this with a client and provide only the level of access that is needed is absolutely wonderful.

It's also great to be able to create many various custom roles and apply specific permissions to each one, exactly as I need.

I'm sure you'll love this plugin as much as I do.

"Just remember to tip the developer." If you find, love and use any of the free plugins, just remember to share the love. (There's nothing worse than finding a plugin you love, and then because of a lack of love shown .. the developer abandons ship. So, .. if you find, love and use any free plugins, remember .. the more love the developer feels, the more likely they will be to stay around, which benefits everyone who uses their plugins.) You can also consider purchasing add-ons if they're available which is another great way to show your appreciation and support the developers. Sorry for this extra comment .. but I just wanted to share my thoughts.

Works great, no bugs!
By ,

Since I use this plugin on [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ], I can offer an internal area for insiders. Looked quite some time and tried several tools, but this is the best. Was a bit worried because of the negative ratings here, but the developer fixes all the bugs quite fast, as it seems. I'll stick with this! Thumbs up!

Once he works out the kinks for Version 2 this is going on the "Must Have" list. It replaces both my other Capabilities/hiding plugins and it does so with style and ease of use. This plugin actually hides my JW Playlists and some other Admin menu items the other plugins couldn't hide, and it allows for finer control on what my admins can see and use.
