Awfully limited now
By , for WP 4.5

Since an update not too long ago this plugin has become useless for me. I used to be able to set up users that allowed access to certain custom post types... now you can only set access to SINGLE posts? Seriously?

To top it off, the administration is terribly slow. Moving on, looking for a new option.

The basic version has limitations
By ,

The plugin is fine, and I set it up as I wanted, but at the end I discovered that there's a limitation of 10 pages to hide/show, and you have to buy $30 extension to use the plugin without the limits. Very sad and frustrated :(

Poor Support
By , for WP 4.4.2

Plugin seems to be built comprehensively, however support is very poor. Cannot hold an email conversation with the developer due to lack of response. I was willing to purchase the pro version if needed to achieve what I was trying to do with the plugin, but I was not even able to assess if Pro was required or not as the developer does not reply.

Backend slow, restricted functions in free version
By ,

Extremely slow backend, even with cachinf turned on.
All usefull functions are in premium package not in free version (fore expample restrict pages by categories etc.).

Therefore this should not be described as the "ONLY FREE PLUGIN..." because in fact it is not free.

Massive Problems with this plugin
By , for WP 4.4

Very complicated plugin to use and now with the silly manual deletion of files it takes to long. Removed the files as requested and it then breaks my website.

Plugin removed and time to find a new one. Dont fix something that is not broken!

Update broke user accounts & really slows site down
By , for WP 4.3.1

Our website "designer" that was hired to originally build our WP site used AAM to create multiple types of user accounts and roles. We noticed it slowed the website load times waaaaaay down, but we were told that this was the only way to do what we wanted. Then when we updated to 2.8.7 it broke all our user accounts except the admin accounts. We disabled the plugin and were amazed at how fast the website was. Now we use the plug-in User Role Editor and it works great for what we need. It is much easier to configure and you can create custom roles.

Backend permission.

Plugin work but didn't find.. User can't see their own dashboard after login.

Bad support and break media files
By , for WP 4.3.1

The plugin developer is absent in the support forum, plus the issue of breaking the media files and changing their link type.
Not recommended.
Please avoid.

Lodaing time
By , for WP 4.3.1

In recent versions you increase the lading time of 3 x.
Support is not the author does not respond to mails.( i use thi mail http://vasyltech.com/about)

The first bad experience with the author from Ukraine. I do not understand why you put the plugin if you do not reply. Big ego and no respect.We little people from different parts of the world who are trying to survive. If there is something to pay go to just premium plugin- but as far as I can see the premuim plugin not supported also.

all well

plugin abandoned
By , for WP 4.3.1

Plugin brakes website. Images disappear. It all hit right after the change of ownership of the plugin.
