Broke my site as well
By , for WP 4.1

I recommend avoiding this plugin. Like another reviewer, I deleted this plugin through cPanel, and my site will not come out of maintenance mode.

This is truly awful, and may really screw things up for me, as far as creating more hours of repair and loss and work.

Avoid this plugin at all costs!

Broke my site. Horrible plugin.

Horrible plugin. Once activated, my site wouldnt come out of maintenance mode. I even deleted the plugin on the backend, and my site is still in maintenance mode. screw you.

Works up until 3.8.1
By , for WP 3.8.1

It was working before I went from 8.0 to 8.1.

Should get things fixed. A bunch of YITH plugins haven't been updated in forever on the plugin repository. Should get on fixing that shit.

Completely broke my permissions
By , for WP 3.7.1

Can no longer log into my site.
"You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

Default settings = dangerous
By ,

Default setting has Admin checked and all other user types unchecked. Also mentions something about how checked users will see the frontend.

Turns out this isn't the case.

This ridiculous interface is ass-backwards. The user types you check will be the only ones to NOT have access.

End result:

  • My site is hidden from the public.
  • /wp-admin or /wp-login are not accessible.
  • My site is hidden from all admin users on my account. Which is the only user type I have.
  • My only solution here is to restore from a server snapshot.
  • I give this plugin 1 star.
  • Please, world, do not download this plugin.
