User Role Editor is one of the easiest ways to change permisions of roles in WordPress. I use this plugin for every project where client need to edit permission on it's own. This the best option after custom code placed in child theme or custom plugin.

First, let's be clear: I have not installed this plugin. My review is based upon the fact I asked about a feature in support forum weeks ago and no response. I have also noticed other users have not received a response to their issues for several weeks. I will install plugin to find the answer and modify my review accordingly.

This is exactly, how well mannered plugin should integrate into WP admin. Add columns and buttons exactly where needed in the Users table, add one sub-menu under Users to control list of roles, exactly where it belongs. No fancy branding. No poluting admin menu. Decent. Absolutely love it. Works charm too. Would appreciate few improvements: "Human readable capabilities" toggle should work live, using javascript, without refreshing the table. Manually granted/denied capabilities should be much more highlighted. Or even toggle for them should appear on top of capabilities table to "Show only changed". Currently it feels like when I change a few capbilities for a user or role that when I come back later I will struggle to find which ones were changed. Link to "Roles and Capabilities" on WordPress documentation should be shown below the capabilites editor table to have it by hand every time I stuggle to remember the name or meaning of some of them. Many thanks, Jakub

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