Hi. Rather than give this plugin a low rating/review I decided to let you know why I might give it a low rating/review. I hope it helps.
I went looking for a plugin to help me identify stray/left-over permissions from previously removed plugins. But I wasn’t able to distinguish what permissions belonged to what with this plugin.
I was able to see the stray permission in question using Admin Menu Editor, but it did not appear in this plugin. None-the-less, I gave it a test run to see if it would be useful for something else.
After installing it, I used it to run a backup of the initial state.
I then loaded the Administrator role and noticed a few boxes weren’t checked. I thought this odd since I own the server and should be superadmin by default, so I checked those boxes and saved it. I have no idea if they were core permissions or related to a plugin, it doesn’t give much indication.
I then created a new role for another admin with only one box unchecked (ability to delete Pages made by others) and immediately lost this user in the author drop-down in both Quick Edit and full edit. I was unable to restore this capability to the Administrator role using the plugin, so I restored the last backup and was able to see the user again.
And that’s it – end test run! I was able to uninstall the plugin, reinstall it and replicate the issue.
Hence, I’d give the plugin at least 1 star for its ability to fully restore the database back to the initial state and leaving backup entries behind for future reference.
But I didn’t really achieve much other than loosing a few hours troubleshooting.
