It could display users by First Name
By , for WP 4.3.1

It would be nice if it had an option in settings to display the user list using their First Names or even nicknames, with the original username writen below, like this:


Great Plugin!
By , for WP 3.4.2

Good Work! Thx.

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!

Great plugin

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

By , for WP 3.6

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