The only one who really works

I tried about ten plug-ins, almost lost the site. After a long search, I tried this plugin and MIRACLE! The only one who really works and closes access to the admin panel. Special thanks to the author!

Works great

WP 4.9.2. works perfectly, for both the display and access to the admin bar.
I wish the settings would go under the “Settings” menu, but not a deal breaker for me.

Works great, does the work of 2 plugins elegantly!

I’ve used 2 plugins before for this stuff. This excellent little plugin makes it really easy, all in 1 plugin. Does just what it needs to and does it well.

My only complaint: it adds a new sidebar item in the Admin. It really should have it’s settings under Settings or Tools sections. Only plugins with multiple pages of settings, and that need to be accessed regularly, should add more height to my sidebar. If that gets fixed, I’ll change my review to 5 stars! I know it’s a bit nit-picky of a complaint. I guess it shows how good this little plugin is, when that’s the only thing wrong.

Role selection not working in 4.7.2

Role selection definitely not working in 4.7.2. I check “Disable Admin bar”, then also check “Subscriber – Select roles admin bar will be disabled for”. Then the bar appears to the Subscriber login!!
I remove the check for Subscriber, and the bar disappears for Subscriber!!
What is going on here?
