Support » Plugin: User Admin Simplifier » Great plugin

  • Really good plugin I was wondering how hard it would be to work with roles instead of users, so we don’t have to keep setting for different users and just tie it to a role.

    This is an interesting suggestion and probably not that hard to implement; i will consider for a future release; I don’t think there are existing plugins that do this although I haven’t looked recently.

    When I developed this plugin I was specifically looking for a way to control menus on a per-user basis. My use case is I had specific users that I wanted to make Admins but still hide certain menu items from. How would you use the role based controls?

    Well at church we have a select group of users that run our video switcher during service and I wanted to give them limited access to our site ie to trigger a live broadcast and instead adding them to the role which has the appropriate permissions and then using your plugin to hide the menu’s that I don’t want them to see it would be easier just to tie it to the role and take care of 2 birds with one stone so to speak.

    that makes perfect sense – thanks for explaining the details of how you would use it, that help! I will definitely consider this feature for a future release and will comment back here if I do add the feature.

    I’d be interested in this feature as well!
