Works like a charm but…

… I’m finding the documentation a little sketchy.
Works great for custom user roles and custom post types – absolutely rock solid.
One question, however:
Is there a way to restrict content on the front end globally for a specific post type?
I’m using CPTUI and ACF to create and customise my post types, and was wondering if instead of having to individually check the restrictions on every created post, somehow you could set all posts of that type to automatically be restricted.
I’m asking this because I’m using Formidable Pro to allow users to fill in a form that will allow post creation from the front end, and I want the posts to be automatically restricted.
You follow my meaning?
Keep up the great work, nice lightweight, totally functional plugin.

Nice, simple, works!

This is a very nice plugin, simple and easy to use and works very well with the select boxes for restricted content directly on the relevant pages.

In short, doesn’t work

Sorry to take the time to leave a 1 star review but after trying for a solid 20 mins to get your plugin to restrict public access to pages, i just could not figure out how the hell to do it.
The instructions on the plugin setup page are cryptic, for example:

Select the Post Types that you wish to activate the Public Access meta box on.
(does this mean that the boxes i tick are restricted to public access, or the ones i do not tick are restricted to public access?)

Check the user roles that you do not wish to be available for selection via the Public Access metabox.
(same questions really – do the selected users get restricted or do they get to access the selected/not selected pages as chosen/not chosen above?)

Also, what is Public Access vs Admin Access if both selection lists contain roles requiring log in?

With a little clarity on what the checkboxes do (do they restrict or grant access when selected) this could be a super simple and easy to use plugin, until then though it’s a 1 star wonder.

It works, but…

The fourth plugin I’ve tried for restricting posts and the first that actually worked! A tad confusing (OK, I didn’t read the instructions, but still…) and it lacks an option to restrict by category (guess I’ll have to write my own), but it’s much simpler and nicer to work with than S2.

Fatal error

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING or ‘(‘ in /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/subdomains/exams/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/restrict-content-by-role/plugin.php on line 40

What I’m doing wrong?
