Role Manager and what, in my opinion, is the most effective way to use it .
In case you did not know, this plugin has the function to expand the management possibilities of the WordPress user profiles allowing you to fully customize what capabilities each user level will have within your WordPress. The default capabilities are designated by WordPress, and I already explained them in the post of user types in WordPress .
If you need basic management with what WordPress offers, it's worth it, but if you want to define profiles in those that, for example, the collaborators can inc You can use images in the posts, you have to use Role Manager.
And it is not a plugin to be entangling all day with it, it is to be clear about the NEED to use it, to configure the profiles that YOU NEED TO DEFINE, to create new profiles ONLY IF CONFIGURING THE EXISTING DOES NOT SATISFY YOU, and then forgetting.
Really, for the management of users, where needed, is PURE ORO. If you manage a site with open user access. Moreover, consider it as if your blog was a company, where you are responsible for human resources and Role Manager is your manager of access to the work machinery (if you have worked in a newsroom is very similar). If a new person enters your company, it allows you to define what that "grantee" can do, for example, and what you can do when you hire him, then when you ascend you can make decisions (publish directly), if you take charge of a team You can manage the work of others (Editor), and so on. And let's not say with the personalized permissions.
