Totally locked me out!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Activated AAM on a client site, it asked me if it should migrate existing data for upgrade, I said yes. Now, as admin i cannot do anything... settings, plugins, themes, layouts, widgets ... locked out of most all areas. I cannot get help, i cannot figure it out. I am screwed and wish I had never installed this plugin. Be very careful.

See my subsequent post. Author contacted me over the weekend and I used a fix.php to restore all my admin capabilities. works fine now.

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.

Awesome WP Plugin and Support
By , for WP 3.8

If there's a way to give 10 stars I will give 10 stars for this plugin and support team especially Vasyl the author, he has supported me very well ans fast work, he consider not only for the new update of this plugin but he consider for people who have used this plugin since version 1, personally he considered to fix some bug for me to catch up my deadline.

I love this plugin because it has complete features that helps developer easily to manage content restrictions, one of my favorite feature is this plugin support inheritance and depth level of the taxonomy to be restricted

Good job Vasyl

Dude let me buy you a beer for your hard work...

Super access control, a much needed plugin

I've used this plugin in my website, this is mainly suitable for any kind of website with multilevel of users with different access permissions.

Quick support from Author
By , for WP 3.8

Had a problem initially with back end displaying incorrectly due to a bug. As soon as i contacted the Author he replied immediately informing me he was aware and would release another version with bug fix that evening - He uploaded another version within 4hrs!

New interface looks good!

Much appreciated support!
