User Access Manager

Description

With the “User Access Manager”-plugin you can manage the access to your posts, pages and files. You only create a user group, put registered users to this and set up the rights for this group. From now on the post/page is only accessible and writable for the specified group. This plugin is useful if you need a member area or a private section at your blog or you want that other people can write at your blog but not everywhere.

Appeal: If it works click the “Works” button, if it don’t works click the “Broken” button and report the issue. That is the only way to find bugs and see if the plugin works proper. Thanks.

Reviews

Group Access Manager would be a better name in my opinion …

After several exchanges with the developer, my first observation is that he knows to make himself available, which is a good point if you need support. The plugin finally suffers from 3 minor anomalies that will be corrected with the next version: 1) the presence of an apostrophe, in the fields of the parameters of the plugin, generates a multitude of anti-slash in its same fields each time you click “Save Settings”. To correct this, simply replace the apostrophes with a space. 2) A “Request Entry Too Large” error may appear when you click “Save settings”, probably due to an upload limit in the server configuration (depending on the developer) or possibly due to a string which became too long following the addition of a multitude of anti-slash in the parameters fields. 3) Some warning messages: “vsprintf (): Too few arguments in …” appear in the settings page, probably due to translation problems (depending on the developer). But as I said before, these 3 points are minor and can not question the quality of the plugin.
However, I was misled by the title of the plugin that does not evoke its function exactly: in my opinion, this plugin should be named Group Acces Manager : UAM is not designed to protect users files, but to prevent users from accessing files reserved to a group, other than the one they belong to.
If this is exactly what you are looking for, the plugin does this very well and deserves its 5 stars because accomplishing this is no easy task.

Plugin did just as stated.

Very good content control. Very easy to setup and use. Worked very well with ADFS single sign on. Will be replacing some other plugins with this one.

One very minor item, would like to be able to not show Group at bottom left of page. I can hide through css but do not best way.

Does not work

Installed on latest WordPress. Made one simple rule to block /shop/ by setting access ONLY to “customers” role. Despite that, any visitor can access the page. Useful documentation is non-existent.

Wow

Very nice plugin, it’s the only one I found that does not require a license to do what it pretends to do.
And it does it pretty well. I’ll consider buying the pro license some day when I manager a bigger project, since the pro features would save me a lot of tweaks.
Keep up good work 😉
