Hands Down the Best of it's Kind!
By , for WP 4.2.2

While testing, I always take notes so that I can reference back. Here are my notes:

1. Capability Manager Enhanced - By Jordi Canals, Kevin Behrens (4.9 - stars)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/capability-manager-enhanced/
• There is one page of settings which are EXTREMELY easy to understand and use.
• You can quickly create, delete, or clone any current role and name it whatever you want!
• Gut feeling: Besides the UI, this is a 10!

2. WPFront User Role Editor - (4.8 - stars)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpfront-user-role-editor/
• Creates a new custom post type called Roles.
• First Notification: "Menu walker class is overriden by a theme/plugin. Current value = UM_Menu_Item_Custom_Fields_Walker. Navigation menu permissions may still work. More information." Not cool.
• This plugin is very advanced and creates numerous tabs with separate sub tabs.
• Gut feeling: Possibly the most powerful but most difficult to use plugin out of the bunch.

3. Advanced Access Manager - by WP AAM (3.7 stars)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-access-manager/
• The UI of the plugin is terrible.
• The lists for each item are roughly 10 deep and you have to click thru pagination to get to the different lists. Not cool.
• Gut feeling: Not what I'm looking for.

4. User Role Editor - by Vladimir Garagulya (4.7 stars)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/
• The plugin too complex with settings under both Users and Settings.
• The UI is poorly designed.
• Nothing I have seen even comes close to Capability Manager Enhanced. Members by Justin Tadlock is close, but that plugin is bloatware compared to Capability Manager Enhanced.
• Gut feeling: Not a chance (07-15-15).
