Reviews

Easiest admin ACL plugin I’ve found for Developer Support access.

All I needed was a plugin to restrict plugin developers who needed to access the admin section of my site. This was the easiest one I found but it had a problem - initially. The developer has fixed the issue and it works as expected. All the other ones I tried were very complicated and took more effort than I could spare at the time to configure them and KNOW that they worked. Excellent, easy plugin.

Does one thing and does it well

I needed a plugin to let another plugin developer into our WP back-end without providing full access. I googled around and came across Waseem's plugin. It took a little configuring (somehow not allowing access to JetPack caused an error) but it just worked. We were able to give limited access without risk. This is one of those plugins that you may not need that often but when you do need it it's absolutely invaluable.
