Justin does a great job with all his stuff from Plugins to Themes,
one of my favorite WP Dev's !
I've been using Members on nearly every site I've built over the past 5 years or so, especially if there are multiple users on a site. Members does what it's supposed to do, without any problems.
Now this update comes out - much improved UI, option to assign multiple roles per user, option to group capabilities by posts/pages/media/plugins/etc, and other improvements.
Thank you for making and maintaining this awesome plugin. It helps to make WordPress an almost fully functional CMS. Really good of you to keep it free and open too!
Thank you so much for developing the Members plugin and for releasing version 1.0.1.
I must confess that this new version is awesome and superbly excellent. Your Plugin has been the best membership plugin and this new version has further widened the gap between Members plugin and other membership plugins that are behind Members plugin.
One of the new and unique feature of this plugin is that it enables multiple
roles to be assigned to a user.
Members plugin is 100% recommended.
I will surely donate for the efforts of the plugin author once my finances improves.
Keep up the excellent work!!
I looked through a lot of different plugins - I found this one to be the simplest to use and powerful enough to do everything I wanted! Thanks!
funziona perfettamente :-)
Every product developer could learn a lesson from Justin, because while this plugin has a tiny feature set, it's the core of tons of sites that have used it to do amazing things. More than 100,000 sites have used it, for good reason.
The plugin lets you create roles (and define the associated rights) and lets you protect content to those roles. That's it. Two features. And yet, those two features, with a couple of additional free plugins, let me build a membership site in less than 20 minutes. I'm serious, I timed it. 19:56. I should have recorded it.
Anyway, here are three reasons you'll love it.
First, because it is scoped tightly, it can be used with many different plugins. You'll notice that the Nav Menu Roles plugin doesn't know anything about Members, but works with it cleanly because all it knows is that it is protecting menu items by the role that is already configured in WordPress. It doesn't know who created it or is managing it, and it doesn't matter. Members just does it's thing.
Second, it doesn't get in the way of what you're doing, or try to do too much. There is no question that Justin knows what he's doing and knows the "WordPress way" to integrate his plugin into the core of the WordPress code. So it snaps into place easily and effectively but doesn't overreach and try to do too much. The result? You can use PayPal, Stripe, or anything else to collect payment and Members doesn't care. It will simply do the two things it's meant to do, and let you do the rest on your own.
Thirdly, If you're trying to build something complicated, you're likely going to use this as a baseline and build other features around it. That's why this is a developer-favorite.
We really needed to keep some non-coder type people locked down to specific edit access. Members was the perfect solution to keeping our sites stable, and our clients happy!
