4 out of 5 stars
Still works
By , for WP 4.2.4

WP 4.2.4 and the plugin works. I'm hesitant to use the new replacement after reading reviews and role scoper is all I need to give one subscriber one page to have edit capability.
It would be 5 stars if it was actively developed.

Thx very much!

Very useful

Exactly what I need
By , for WP 3.8

This plugin provides the possibility to grant users access to specific posts, pages and even custom post types !!!

I have searched two days to find exactly this functionality.

Thank you very much!

Messes menus and is complex
By , for WP 3.6.1

First, the need for this plugin is huge and I really want it to work. It has two strikes against it.

1) Most serious is that it screws up custom menus (which should not be a part of the plugin's process at all). It will take content from one menu and add it to another, and the same in reverse. The testing I did to isolate the problem involved stripping everything out of my site, deactivating all plugins and then reactivating them one-by-one, testing the menus.

2) The plugin is overly complex, with interwoven configuration elements. There needs to be a "lite" version of this that allows you to (a) define a role, (b) assign capabilities to a role, (c) assign those capabilities to a user and then (d) assign a user to a page (or other element). You can do this with Role Scoper, but the UX is obtuse.

extensive but with a compromise
By , for WP 3.6.1

i must commend the plugin author for making such an extensive plugin. the ui may not be as presentable but it gets the job done. there are caveats to consider using the plugin. 1, it requires a pretty good amount of resources(memory).its not that ideal for those that are in shared hosting, running on multisite or using a wp firewall.2, the UI is extensive but also overwhelming most especially if you are on wordpress multisite

I'm super pleased with this plugin. I'd just suggest to make it more user friendly. Otherwise the features are awesome! Thanks.

Really great plugin!

Simple, easy to understand even for first time users and does it job well. It's an example of great plugin.

THX very much! searched for hours for a plugin like this but all others can only do 2% of what this can ;) and all that for free ...

Very hard to configure + unexpected results
By , for WP 3.4.2

Took us hours to configure, only to find out that all posts which are not custom post type were invisible to non logged in users. Hence, the site was practically down for more than 2 days.

On a support query that I submitted in the developer's website I go no timely response so I had to uninstall the plugin and search for a different solution.

The reason it got an additional star to the minimum 1 is because it supposed Custom Post Types.
