Using this plugin on many sites for many years now. Excellent integration. Very useful, as for combining multiple user roles.

The service is unbelievable

Release 2.0 removed TablePress from organizational Multisite's main and subsite Dashboards and after following the creator's guidelines without solving the issue, I sent an email which was replied immediately, solving the issue within the day through a newer minor release update. This guy is awesome!

Big thanks! This plugin help me edit role capabilities without coding :)

Does exactly what it says!

After testing out different multi-vendor plugins on my website, I had a bunch of user roles all with the same name "vendor". Having 3 different roles with the same name was confusing since it's impossible to tell which plugin it came from and which one actually works, so I had to remove all of them and reset the default roles for the plugin I was currently using. This plugin worked great! It removed all of the custom roles created by other plugins. All I had to do afterward was deactivate and reactivate woocommerce and reset the roles for the multi-vendor plugin I decided to keep using, and now everything works perfectly well. Thank you!

It's good- testing

This is a must have plugin for any WP sites that is more than just a blog. It is so damn powerful and is surely a Top 10 plugin in any WP plugin list. Thank you, Vladimir Garagulya

Easy to use

Like this plugin..but can't update now or get pro

By multmediadesigns on May 5, 2022

I like this plugin and wanted to continue my pro version for my very customized site, instead of writing my own version. Sadly, the Russian war on the Ukraine has shut down the ability to renew my purchase the pro version. So back to writing my own....

Among the few plugins I will install

I prefer writing my own code for most activities. Since I need to manage WooCommerce permissions, this is a good plugin. At the very least, I can use it to quickly test capabilities.

Simple and straightforward

Did what I expected, simple to understand. And the best part is no nags to leave reviews or upgrade to a Pro version for features I don't need (unlike some other capabilities plugins).
