Plugin broke my admin page
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin broke my (and many other users') admin page. The plugin page wasn't visible anymore to my super admin account. Needed to manually delete records in the database to fix this.

worthless! Seriously dont waste time installing!

Pathetic! Pretty much of no use and most importantly pay for every damn expected feature!

Doesn't work properly
By , for WP 4.1.1

I like this plugin but after manual instalation I got this "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS in /home/a6496147/public_html/portal/wp-content/plugins/advanced-access-manager/application/control/object/metabox.php on line 1". I did manual instalation few times and I still got same error.

Not usable after registering
By , for WP 4.1.1

At first glance the plug-in seems to be able to do most things I want.
But trying it is a bit hard. Altering a few options a few times, to see what happens, and the trial is over.

I thought to have seen enough, so I ordered the paid version. I got the license soon enough, but when I tried to installit I got the error that the plugin could not write the file.
So, I manually checked that the folders are writable.
Still no go.
So, I tried to uninstall it through WordPress itself. Uninstall did not work. Manual uninstall did work. Reinstalled through WordPress, both manual upload and automatic install. Both still had the above problems. Installed manually through FTP, still problems with writing the license and uninstalling the plug-in automaticly.

I contacted the support E-mail. But after two weeks, there is still no reply. So now I have asked a refund through PayPal. I hope the refund will be done.

Worst plugin ever!

This is the worst plugin ever.
Admin role is removed after this plugin.
This is taking me hours to get my website back up.
What a sh1_t plugin!

VERY poor support
By , for WP 4.1

This is a brilliant plugin with VERY poor support from the creator. I suppose he doesn't make much $$ on this but this plugin takes so much control of your WP install you should be intimately familiar with your database and WP roles. We would have paid much more than the $10 we paid for this after seeing how it works but right now it's not even worth free as there is little or no support. Sorry but We CANNOT recommend anyone install this with support this poor.

Full of bugs

In the last version it deletes roles after save the capabilities

Not Fully Compatible with SSL
By , for WP 4.0

This is my rating
Because the config page cannot load on SSL
AAM should improved for SSL with reason for security
