Amazing plugin

By thisbit on May 21, 2023

A powerfull, logical, native approach to capabilities and roles, without the need to code it all. Great stuff. Probably the best solution out there.

Stopped working Admin bar not showing

By nierom on April 3, 2023

I installed your plugin to add more capabilities to the Contributor role and now for some reason, the black menu bar isn't showing up for that role. I've tried deactivating the plugin but the changes are still there, please let me know how I can have all the changes from the plugin removed.

Kind regards

Great for creating custom user experiences

By Guy Iaccarino (guyiac) on March 27, 2023

We've been using the pro version of this plugin on many many sites for at least 5 years, and it seems like we still find things that we didn't know we could do. Recently we've been working on creating a custom workflow that allows our clients to do certain things but not others, and this plugin has been invaluable. We couldn't be doing what we are doing without it. Vladimir is also highly responsive, and willing to add new features if the need makes sense. This is the best money I ever spent for a plugin in any CMS.

Best multi-purpose permissions plugin

By Suki (sukinoz) on March 22, 2023

This is the best multi-purpose permissions plugin.
That is, there are other plugins focused on specific things, such as user role management, but this plugin (and its modules) allow you to CONTROL WORDPRESS PERMISSIONS of roles, menu items, show content or not depending on the role, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

Ha funcionado donde otros no

By Angel Aparicio (angel_aparicio_gomez) on March 17, 2023

Más sencillo de usar que otros plugins similares y me ha solucionado un problema que no podía solucionar con otro plugin similar.

Con otro plugin muy parecido tuve el problema de que no distinguía entre mayúsculas y minúsculas, con lo que asignaba mal las "capabilities" si estás tenían mayúsculas.

Con este plugin, problema resuelto.

Just great!

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

The service is unbelievable

By petroslouca on December 28, 2022

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!

By sweetartistry on July 17, 2022

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!
