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.

Disapointed too
By , for WP 3.8.3

I loved this plugin.

After updating it, admin role can't be controlled anymore and can't create role or user profiles to allow access to certain plugins...

Please fix it!

This plugin doesn't work in 3.5
By , for WP 3.5

I gave it 2 stars because it didn't bring my site down but it definitely is having major issues in version 3.5 of WordPress.

I use admin menu editor and user role editor together and it pretty much accomplishes the same thing that this plugin used to accomplish.
