PublishPress Capabilities: Manage WordPress Permissions and Edit User Roles


PublishPress Capabilities gives you control over all the permissions on your WordPress site. We built this user role editor plugin so you have an EASY and POWERFUL way to manage users.

You can customize all the user roles on your site, from Administrators and Editors to Authors, Contributors, Subscribers and custom roles. Each role can have the exact permissions that your site needs.

You can use PublishPress Capabilities to clean up the post editing screen. You can decide what authors see when they’re writing posts. You can hide any features on the Gutenberg or Classic Editor screens.

PublishPress Capabilities is safe to use. Every time you change your site’s permissions, this plugin will take a backup that you can restore if anything goes wrong. You can use these backups to migrate your roles and permissions from one site to another.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS PLUGIN. I installed this free plugin. As an admin user, I lost access to custom post type, now it tells me I need higher privilege permissions to access many common backend sections (media, wp-forms, templates). Woocommerce cannot access various functions. I recovered first backup and neither. Reset original WordPress, it doesn't work either. It made me mess of permissions of the admin rol / user... Luckily I have a full backup of the website, otherwise I lost everything!
جُون 25, 2021
I've installed the plugin to test it's functionalities. It works find, except that it put a block on wpml to push you to buy the plugin. That's fine, it took a fair deal of work to make the plugin, I understand that some features are behind a paywall. Now, I do not use the plugin anymore, created some custom roles by code and I need to have the plugin installed and activated to be able to use them!!! Even the code from the wordpress docs is not working without the plugin activated!!! That's a very aggressive way of pushing your plugin
مئی 27, 2021
Absolutely fantastic plugin!! Exactly what I needed to create a custom "Order Manager" role in Woocommerce.

I cannot tell you how appreciative I am of working with Steve on the Capabilities Plugin. I am not a Programmer and was in a bind as WordPress's main core does not allow me to be selective with my User Access. I have six different Managers that require different accesses. Capabilities Plugin gives me the ability to assign my Users as to what pages I want them to gain access to and what specific reports. Love! Love! Love! this plugin. Thank you for all your hard work, Steve!

WE had an issue with our previous user role editor which was causing db issues and permission problems Publish Press was recommended by our server and the support was amazing. Highly recommended pro version of plugin but even if it is free version there are many great features useful to any WP author.
