The most powerful user, role, and capability management plugin for WordPress.
I wasn't satisfied with the current user, role, and permissions plugins available. Yes, some of them are good, but nothing fit what I had in mind perfectly. Some offered few features. Some worked completely outside of the WordPress APIs. Others lacked the GPL license.
So, I just built something I actually enjoyed using.
Most things should be fairly straightforward, but I've included an in-depth guide in the plugin download. It's a file called
readme.md in the plugin folder.
You can also view the readme online.
When the plugin is first activated, it runs a script that sets specific capabilities to the "Administrator" role on your site that grants you access to this feature. So, you must be logged in with the administrator account to access the role manager.
If, for some reason, you do have the administrator role and the role manager is still inaccessible to you, deactivate the plugin. Then, reactivate it.
Please read the documentation for the plugin before actually using it, especially a plugin that controls permissions for your site. I cannot stress this enough. This is a powerful plugin that allows you to make direct changes to roles and capabilities in the database.
You'll need to stop by my support forums to see if we can get your site fixed if you managed to lock yourself out. I know that this can be a bit can be a bit scary, but it's not that tough to fix with a little custom code.
