Support » Plugin: WPFront User Role Editor » Looks good but only very basic in Free version

  • I have installed this plugin after testing User Role Editor by Vladimir Garagulya – this only had very limited functionality. I saw that on the WP Symposium Pro pages that examples showed the “ROLES” plugin. Great I thought! Unfortunately all the functionality I need to work with my other “Open Source” plugins is a premium purchase – (Upgrade to Pro). I am very disappointed with this as I am developing an Open Source educational WordPress site that has no funding whatsoever and exists merely on interest and personal effort. I have to make sure this is purely Open Source and can be maintained by the establishment without cost in future.
    See the list below for my “Moderator” role which is missing the ability to moderate with Knowledgebase and Forums.

    I am not criticising plugin authors for wanting to make a profit for their work (everyone has to eat) but installing and running an Open Source framework like WordPress is extremely disappointing when one finds that many authors are enticing you to spend and upgrade by offering a really good product then finding it only has really limited functionality beyond the title page. This goes against the whole idea of Open Source. I am doing my bit by implementing the site without charge and I have personally donated the 1st Year Domain name and Godaddy hosting.
