Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » Didn’t fix my problem, made it worse, avoid like the plague.

  • I installed this plugin to solve a very specific problem of not being able to access a certain other plugin, I saw User Role Editor recommended as a fix on a forum. After installing with no errors, User Role Editor does not appear, all of my users except for myself are gone (oddly enough they can all still log in and have all roles they had before install). I would remove it but it does not appear in my plugin list, it shows as active on the Add Plugins screen but as far as deactivating or disabling it does not appear. So I go to the plugin homepage to find any type of support, there is none unless I buy the pay version for $29 a year. Maybe I’ll post on the forum, nope, not unless I pay my $29. So to get any support at all I need to pay, even to simply figure out how to remove it without causing further issues. I could post on the developers blog but the confirmation email that I need to verify to be able to post anything there is never sent. As this seems to be the only public forum where I can express my displeasure allow me to do so now.
