Great plugin - simple and straightforward to use. Lock down pages or posts based on roles or capabilities. Allows you to also add custom capabilities and custom roles so you can extend WordPress' users functionality.
Custom editing of user roles allows for specific tailoring of client access, so the functionality of the site can be upheld.
There are two big capabilities this plugin can give you: editing and/or creating custom roles with exactly the permissions you want, and locking off access to parts of your site so that only users with specific role(s) can read them.
The role editor is simply fantastic. The page access controls are excellent as well - just do realize going in that as of 0.2.4 you may run in to a couple limitations on what that part of the plug-in can do:
- You must edit page access settings one page at a time - the plugin cannot automatically assign permissions changes on a page to child pages.
- Page content is hidden, but not the page title. The page's existence does show up in places like site search or auto-generated (fallback) navigation menus. If you want to go so far as to remove any indication of the page's existence from users who are not logged in/are not one of the approved roles, you will need some of your own PHP code to accomplish this.
Even if these are things you may want to address, this plugin is a rock solid foundation for any developer, and a great tool for anyone needing greater control over their WordPress site.
Works just the way it should :-)
Great plugin ! Simple to use and so obvious. A must have on wordpress website.
I have no idea if I will run into problems later, but I was able to deploy and then customize the contributor role to allow media updates in 5 minutes and (now 10 minutes later) everything seems to be working perfectly. If I run into problems, I will update this review.
Es el mejor plugin que haya encontrado para la administración de roles y permisos por entrada/página, lo unico que me preocupa es que lleva 1 año sin actualizarse...
¿No van a seguir actualizando el plugin? teniendo en sus manos un producto tan bueno seria muy triste que abandonasen el proyecto.
This plugin opens up the WP roles. It's about one year old now but still going strong.
Fantastic code, stood the test of time.
