Manage user’s roles more specifically

Thanks to permission manager, you can assign certain competencies to users easily and with peace of mind that they won’t modify something they’re not supposed to. It’s very handy if your team of bloggers can add their new posts by themselves or if listings in your portal are managing their own content like food menus or special offers.


Are you a web agency?

Permission manager is the right tool for you. You can decide which administration sections your clients see and are able to modify themselves. Everything else will be in your hands. Doesn’t it sound like great time savings and happier customers with working websites?

Start with defining groups of users or “packages” for users with certain defined attributes depending on their role or level of capabilities (e.g. Free package, Premium package, Blogger etc.).

Then go through the groups of permissions to decide what they can and cannot see and modify in the system.

  • WordPress Capabalities

    Here you can grant access to general WordPress settings or other standard setup in WordPress environment.

  • Theme Capabilities

    Decide if users get access to certain AIT Theme settings like page builder or default layout.

  • Plugin Capabilities

    Each AIT plugin has its own settings and you can let users work with those ones they need.

  • Custom Post Types Capabilities

    Enable or disable access to AIT Custom Post Types according to currently installed AIT theme.

      Hello Willem,

      thanks for asking. You can’t give the permission to someone by its user name, but you can create unlimited user’s packages, for example any special dedicated/assigned just to a one user…

      Best, Zlatko

    Hi Zlatko,

    Thanx for your reply, did’t see you already answered. (where to look)

    I have been playing with your easy admin plugin, but the build in options where to limited.
    For example, i would like my clients to be able to create and maintain their own photogallery (portfolio pictures).
    More and better then the “gallery” that you now serve. Was thinking of a combination with Envira gallery.
    So that , for example i create a gallery which only that customer can edit/add pictures too…

    Is that, of someting like that doable?

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Willem,
      tanks for your reply.
      Envira gallery plugin use own drag and drop page builder instead of the one created by AIT team, moreover the plugin is not tested with our products. Instead of this you can use built-in Portfolio element and custom post type and yet, thanks to Permission manager you can manage your users/customers edit/add/delete … images.
      Thanks for understanding.
      Best, Zlatko

    Before I purchase easy admin I would like to know when a new person registers to my site to created listing in my directory theme, do they also have the easy admin dashboard to use and manage their items?
    And can the claim listing plug in also be used in conjunction with the easy admin plug in?
    Thanks. And yes I will buy complete access package you currently have available! What a great offer!

    1. Zlatko

      Hello again,
      thanks for asking. I have just checked our translation database and have found out lac of translation of this plugin in Spanish on our presentation page only. Please do not worry, the plugin has completely translated back-end and front-end into Spanish language. We’ll manage just an export of the finished translations into plugin.
      Thanks for your patience.

    Hi! We are interested in Directory+ theme. For the $89 membership, do we get all the Premium and Directory themes and plugins?
    Do people often buy additional plugins are do they have everything that they need from the membership?
    Also, we are a traditional print media directory. How easy will it be to add images of our print ads at various sizes to the existing layouts?

    1. Emilia

      Hi, Full membership inlcludes all products, themes, plugins, icons. You can manage ads using Advertisement element, where you can place ads like images or google adsense ads. There is no limit for the image size.


  5. John

    What about iPhones and Android devices, will we need an app? Is there a clear easy way to load a hot link of the homepage on a mobile device instead? How are other users of your software handling this?

    1. Emilia

      Thanks for question, themes are responsive, it means will appear on mobile devices in appropriate resolution. You can manage all contact details in Theme Options. Your user can edit own company details as well as long as they have an access.

    Hello. Bought a full package of Lifetime membership for only. Here are the questions.
    1. When a user with the “Free” package comes in at a minimum, he sees all comments that he can read and delete, this is not allowed.
    2. Another problem when this user wants to create a new “Page” or “Article” is only seen by the WordPress editor and nothing can be done.
    How to proceed?

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Stark,

      thanks for purchasing Lifetime Membership package.
      Please have a look at the following articles and instructions:

      After creating registration form:
      or you should set the user’s packages:
      Once users are registered you give them an access to create and manage Items custom post type: or even in Events Pro posts (if they you are using Events Pro plugin):
      You can help to all of your users when you introduce a nicer design of the WP administration by using Easy Admin plugin: you can create an user friendly admin’s feel of look and comfortable navigation, which helps especially to all non-wordpress users in order simplify their work in WordPress administration.

    I am interested in memorial theme. Just wanted to know, with this permission manager plugin, can user register itself through wordpress frontend and then login and can create tribute pages of their loved ones ?


    1. Zlatko

      Hello Kama,

      thanks for getting back on this. There is no option in theme administration to use registration plugin by default – therefore feel free to use any of 3rd party developers plugins (mostly comes for free).
      Consequently you should create register/login form by inserting shortcode in wysiwyg editor or by using widget.

      feel free to test a free theme version with registration/login plugin, free version of the theme doesn’t use AIT Toolkit plugin as well as AIT Shortcodes and can be used for non commercial purpose for unlimited time:
      (which means: no pre-made custom post types, no Elements to show them in Page Builder, search form without some functionality, no sidebars etc). Basically you can perform setting of colours and some basic functionality with free theme version, in fact the theme is suitable for personal use only (not ready for commercial purpose, no technical support).
      Therefore, feel free to have a try our framework – administration of the theme -> i hope you’ll find the following article useful.

      Should you be interesting to test full theme, please kindly note:
      Full demo admin is not available, but you can have any of our products (from http://www.ait-themes.CLUB) at no risk as we offer 10 days of money back guarantee. You can play around with the themes, plugins etc, and once you are interesting to upgrade your subscription into Full Membership – no problem, you can do it within 30 days by paying the difference between the prices.
      In addition – each of our products is updated on regular basis – themes, plugins are kept always compatible with the latest versions of WordPress, PHP, and with some of 3rd party developers plugins like Revolution Slider, WooCommerce plugins, Wordfence, Yoast SEO, Sucuri, Schematic, etc.

      Thanks for understanding.
      Kind regards!
      AIT team
