Reviews

Excellent support – good documentation and functionality

Remark: I’m using the PRO version and my review only addresses that version.

I missed a little detail and a feature did not work as expected. Nimesh replied immediately and corrected my wrong assumption (as administrator you always see everything; you must change your role to test the specific behaviour).

The documentation covers all areas with examples; very useful!

The available options covered all my needs (protect all posts, show pages to everybody, restrict search to certain pages, different menu tabs based on user roles, …) and allow nice fine-tuning of protection.

With the help of this plugin I could implement a website offering content for everybody and special areas/posts for authorized users.

Great plugin, best support

Thank you for this plugin. Nimesh give me best support. I recommand this plugin for all who need private Content!

Great Plugin, work perfect

Great Service

I had a problem with the plugin on WordPress newest version 4.7.2. For some reason a table was not created when installing the plugin. Nimesh identified the problem with in minutes and fixed the problem quickly despite very different time zones and problems connection to my server. Great Service.
