Thanks, it works. Had to restrict access to a page. Just installed, added DownloadArea group throught metabox in Edit Post and now I can easily attach/deattach users to it unders Users admin page.

Powerful plugin to managed protected areas and grant access to certain groups only.
Additional functionality has to be bought. To setup a file-management system to buy additional FILES plugin. Reasonable prized, well integrated.

brings much needed group permissions to wordpress
By ,

As things stand currently, wordpress doesn't come with an easy way to place users in multiple groups / roles as far as I know. From a CMS perspective this is limiting.

Groups solves this and many other problems for me.

Didn't like

Lots of stuff to read in the documentation for something I never could figure out how to use.

Good functionality and easy to use
By , for WP 3.8

Many people do not need a fully fledge community software... so am I.

I was just looking for a functionality to limit access to logged in people for certain pages and posts.

This is what Groups does and a little more like ability to display different text per short-codes. Great.

NADA on usability...
By , for WP 3.6.1

i dunno what the hype is about this plugin, it scores nil for usability. Can't even see added groups... PRESS PERMIT is a far more intuitive option in this regards....

Very useful for controlling the functions to which users can access.

This is just what I needed with wp-types and Woo
By , for WP 3.6

A great plugin, intuitive, easy to use.
And it is fully compatible with Toolset (http://wp-types.com) great plugins, especially their Access plugin (that deals with user roles, posts AND fields protection).
It is compatible with WooCommerce (products and orders)

Groups was the missing part to manage protection on a one post/page(cot/product/order level.

An excellent job.
Thank you for sharing,
