Basic Plugin Good but Premium Not so Good
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have been happy with the basic plugin which I have used on several websites. SO much so that I decided to purchase several of the premium extensions. I have yet to get the premium extensions to install and have received no response from support after 3 emails. Bottom line is support seems to not exist and premium content doesn't work.

Worst Experience
By , for WP 4.1

After installing this plugin My Plugin menu disappeared and now I don't have option to delete the plugin even. Then I deleted the plugin from ftp. But still no Plugin menu where I have administrator access.

Need to Mature
By , for WP 3.9.1

Apart from all the positive reviews, this plugin (free version) did not solved my problem (restrict posts, pages and categories by user/groups). I consider it a basic function for any called "access manager". Hiding the panel is cool, but just a feature, not an main function. The plugin admin interface is kinda confuse. Anyway thanks for the effort, but the free version needs to get better.

Great limited features, nice UI, but a hidden fee for extra features

I was excited with the plugin at first look, the UI looked nice. But once, I realized that for the necessary extra features you have to pay $30, uninstalled it. Also, you can only apply 5 restrictions for a free version. this is way too limited.

Totally locked me out!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Activated AAM on a client site, it asked me if it should migrate existing data for upgrade, I said yes. Now, as admin i cannot do anything... settings, plugins, themes, layouts, widgets ... locked out of most all areas. I cannot get help, i cannot figure it out. I am screwed and wish I had never installed this plugin. Be very careful.

See my subsequent post. Author contacted me over the weekend and I used a fix.php to restore all my admin capabilities. works fine now.

Good Plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I've been looking for a plugin to customize access for user roles on my wp sites. This plugin is very easy to use but I have an issue with users not being able to edit categories. Other that that this plugin is just what I need.

Great But...

This plugin works great and does EVERYTHING I could ever ask for, BUT it slows down my site load time by like 38% which is really bad. Sorry guys, I have to find a new one.
