AIT Permissions Manager: Tool to prevent your clients from breaking their website

Benefit not only for web agencies

Do you create websites for clients who subsequently manage website content themselves? As a web agency, freelancer or webmaster, are you constantly fighting for having the nice look of the website you’ve built preserved during its lifetime?

Each website “developer” encountered a situation that after a few months following the difficult job of personalizing the theme to your client’s expectations, the website no longer had all the aspects of a professional-looking presentation. Is it even possible to use the WordPress platform for content editing by a non-technical user?

The main idea of ​​CMS is that the website content management task belongs to the owner, copywriter, or marketer who independently accesses the administration interface. Adding a new text, image, or update of the price table does not need to be performed by the website “developer” itself.

One of the main advantages over our competitors is that we bring you time-saving features that really simplify your day-to-day work with WordPress themes. We know that building website is time consuming, even if you buy the best theme on the market. Let’s be honest, end-to-end non-technical user can quickly get lost in the website admin interface. And if you let them access theme options, the website that you’ve created might suddenly NOT look good enough to be displayed in your portfolio of “Realized projects” any more…

Our priority are time-saving features that truly help you with your work with WordPress theme.

Plugin that changes the way how to change permissions of WordPress roles

WordPress itself provides certain basic permissions settings, but it is not possible to set up separate permissions for specific website types. AIT Permissions Manager is an extended permission plugin that enables website admin to set up WordPress user roles as required. This means that web admin can set up separate permissions (individual for each user) to the Theme, Custom Post types and even plugins.

Why’s Permissions Manager essential for web agency

How many times were you in the situation when non-technical clients approached you with the request to rescue their website?

1. No website breaking by the client

In case the client has access to the Theme Options, Page Builder and any other settings enabled in permissions settings, client can unintentionally make setup changes that can cause various issues. Because of this, the website can start malfunctioning and additional resources need to be allocated by the web agency for restoring the website back to its original state.

2. No “unnecessary” problem fixing

Fixing of issues created by clients is often much more time consuming than it seems at the first glance. In addition, there is a business dilemma in relation to the client – should the costs for a website repair be invoiced to the client? Or should the costs be rather absorbed internally?

3. Time savings for the client

Permissions Manager plugin enables web admin to make available only those parts of admin interface to the client that client really needs for managing the website content.
By assigning the right capabilities of WordPress roles, you save client’s time as the client doesn’t need to worry about finding the right settings among all the Theme Options. You simply deactivate what client doesn’t need.

Furthermore, you can provide your client with the user-friendly interface of wp-admin itself via Easy Admin plugin that simplifies the website administration and provides better experience to your client.

4. More efficient management of WordPress user roles for external co-workers

Most of the web agencies cooperate with various external service providers, e.g. copywriters or translators. Permissions Manager is a very useful tool for this – you can assign the Editor status to these users and give them permissions related to Posts only. Thanks to these permission settings, editors can access the admin without interfering with other parts of the website. Another advantage is that they can add content directly via admin interface and do not have to send it to you via text files. This means that you do not have to copy individual posts or translations into admin and perform any other additional work.


Plugin Permissions Manager brings the approach how to change permissions to the next level. This plugin makes the management of capabilities of WordPress roles more efficient.

5. Tool for tailoring your business model
