Frustrating as hell
By , for WP 4.2.2

The lack of instructions make it really frustrating to use. I have no idea how to make this plugin work which sucks because it looks like a great tool if only there were instructions on how to use it.

I can provide access to registered users but the permissions don't flow upwards to editors or admins which means I can't even see the posts under the category that I've restricted (as I'm an admin). I tried following what I've found under support and it doesn't work. Plus there is a radio box under every users that is on which says no access level. I don't know (lack of instructions) if this is because these members were all pre existing or if there is something I need to do to get it to see them for the roles they possess.

I'll be searching for other restricted access plugins I guess but will keep this one deactivated in the event that the author ever realizes how vital adding instructions are rather than just saying he's too busy adding features. There are only some 400 installs at the time of my review, if he wrote instructions it would easily be one of if not the top access control plugins available but for now it's just frustrating as hell.
