Webmaster User Role

Adds a new "Admin" user role between Administrator and Editor. Perfect for clients and those who know just enough to be dangerous.

Install plugin, edit it a little with the plugin "User Role Editor" and you are good to go :)

Genius Plugin - 1 Enhancement suggestion (Wishlist)
By , for WP 4.4

This plugin rocks - and it is exactly what I need. It filters as mentioned in the plugin description, which works perfect. It has only 4 stars, because there is one thing that would be really important to me:

If you could add the possibility to restrict also other areas. For example: I have a backup plugin installed, and a Admin Help Box plugin, as well as other handy admin plugin that help me, but which my clients should not see. It would be simply PERFECT if your plugin would pull these other installed plugins, and I could simply flip a switch so the "Admin" user role could also simply not view them. BTW: Taking away the link would already be enough for me, because if a link in the backend navigation is not there, regular client users are simply not deep enough into it, as that they could imagine there is more than they see at the moment. ;-)

Think this would be possible to have done? I know there is other plugins out there that do similar things (I have tried different ones), but I would much rather have all of this controled by only this one plugin than having to manage all of that on different plugins... .

Looking forward to your answer - and would really L O V E if you could implement the suggested. Thx so much for this already great plugin!

Easy To Implement User Role Plugin!
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin is absolutely fantastic! The Free version does all of the work for you...All you need to do is install/activate & then pick the "Admin" user role for the person you want to have limited access. That's it! Done!

When I reviewed the WP tabs that the default Admin allowed, I discovered that it still allowed access to the Appearance tab, so I upgraded to the Pro version and found that to have a very easy-to-use interface which allowed me to block/hide access to not only top-level tabs, but also to sub-tabs (while still allowing access to the sub-tab's top-level)...So, I could allow access to certain sub-tabs and and deny access to other sub-tabs in the same main tab.

Webmaster User - MAGIC

Thanks a lot!

I was in trouble with a client who deleted me as 'admin', when his site was almost finished.
This plugin was a Gods Gift!
Thanks a lot!

Easy to use and good appearance!

Excellent

Does what it is supposed to do perfectly - adds an admin role without access to plugins and themes. Shame about the poor reviews which actually criticize it for doing so!

Very poor

Little compatibility with WP 4.0

Takes away tools and settings but leaves Appearance

An "admin" should have access to users. This plugin doesn't give the flexibility to define roles as I'd like them.

An "admin" should NOT have access to appearance. I worked hard on the design and don't want the users messing it up.

Very Useful

A great plugin to setup just the right permissions for a client.

Too easy!
