The website for my customer was made by a third company that installed this plugin, and blocked his user account from editing almost everything. since he does not have a full admin functionality one cannot even disable the plugin.

this plugin is good in trusted hands but beware of the third party who can block you from your own website.

I'd rate it lower if I could, broke my site.

Avoid at all costs! Installed and it looked solid, worked fairly well, then wanted to revert to stock and hit reset, and everything broke! All my plugins are no longer accessible by anyone, not even the admin account. Apparently the pro version can change plugin permissions but I'm not paying this guy $29 just to get my site back the way it was before I installed it!

So disappointed. I'm going to have to find a way to revert back to standard permissions for everything now.

Perfect Fit for What I Needed

So wanted to create a role just for my affiliates, and this plugin make it so simple. A must-have if you need to have more control over users and capabilities.

Corrupted files minutes after activating.

Zero star. Changed a user role so that a client could use the options of a plugin with an editor role, while not being overwhelmed by the normal admin interface or having the possibility of accidentally messing up important settings. Worked for about 2 minutes then database error caused the site & wp admin to go down. Had to FTP delete the plugin and restore the whole site.

Really good for setting membership structure
