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!

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!

Perfect!

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

Extensive Control.
By , for WP 3.8

This plugin was perfect for my needs. It's easy to use and in-depth enough to allow you to control not only roles but individual user privileges. The last plugin I was trying I had to create individual roles per user to be able to fine-tune everything. This plugin simplified all that and I'm thankful!

Good Plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I've been looking for a plugin to customize access for user roles on my wp sites. This plugin is very easy to use but I have an issue with users not being able to edit categories. Other that that this plugin is just what I need.

very useful plugin
By , for WP 3.8

I have been looking for a great plugin to customize capabilities of user roles for a few days. This plugin is very useful and can give and deny permissions for users very easily. This plugin is just what I have been looking for. Thank you very much for the free plugin!
