There's 2 things I look for when paying for a component. That's a great component to suit my requirements, and prompt service to assist with any problems.

That's what you'll get with this component. I highly recommend!

I find as much as Joomla's ACL has continued to improve, the View vs. Actions, etc. especially when adding extensions can get quite confusing. I purchased ACL Manager to help me and got more than I bargained for. Just starting it I found myself cleaning up a lot of garbage on my site. Then fixed some issues on the core ACL, the...then looked into the issues of some major extensions and their permissions. This is a must have on every one of my sites now. Only thing I would like to see is a "get started" document manual instead of just jumping in and/or reading FAQ's.

This component offers so much more then ACL Control, allowing the cleanup of broken assets and showing a group access limitations very graphically. This will be on my basic install list from here on in. Very cheap for what you get to control and the time you save doing it.

I worked a bit with ACL manager locally, now I can see it running live.
ACL manager is just amazing, intuitive, very easy to use, component-organized, well written code, the diagnostic feature is incredible.
The very fast support, for all that the component provides its price is also very good, you will not find anything better on the market.
And all these features together, I feel that this component safe tomorrow or later will not go away for Joomla! Extensions Directory, as with other extensions, I'm sure it is a solid business.
Thanks Sander

I've been fighting an ACL problem where restricted content is visible to the public. I followed every tutorial I could find and hopelessly screwed up my permissions. I bought and installed the product which was simple and intuitive.

There was a problem with the diagnostics not understanding assets. I wrote a support ticket and barely had time to submit and open my email before the reply with the solution popped into my inbox! That was the fastest customer support I have ever had on anything.

My user permissions were straightened out with a few clicks and specific adjustments went smoothly. Now all I have to do is find out what the root cause of my problem is, BUT I have the permissions in order.

Thank You,

This is how ALL joomla addons should be made. Easy to use, well thought out, intuitive. The company's website is also straight forward and the user systems work flawlessly. The owners replied to my email immediately and were very accommodating. Very satisfied.

ACL Manager is one of those components that you just can't live without. Only one tiny issue the whole time I've been using it and I put in a support ticket at 2:30am and had the correct answer to my problem in my inbox in 5 minutes. A quick php5.ini edit (not even a component problem) and we were back in business.

Sander offers a top-notch product with unbeatable technical support. The ACL Component has far surpassed my expectations, and I'm pretty sure I'll never create another Joomla site without it. Highly Recommended. Thanks Sander!

After upgrading Joomla from 2.5.14 to 2.5.16 registered users were not allowed to log in my site. I spent many hours searching the web for solutions, tried this and tried that - nothing helped. But then .....
I installed the ACL manager - and in less than 5 minutes the problems were solved. There are not enough stars above ...!
Thank you for this great work!

I do not know how I was able to run my sites before I installed this. There are so many undetected errors that can happen which are picked up by ACL MANAGER and remedied immediately.
In addition, when I did have a question, Sander responded instantly with the exact troubleshooting method I needed. From my experience, everyone using Joomla should be using this extension- absolutely worth it! Thank you!

I purchased this software this morning as my site was an asset shipwreck and I was unable to login to the back end without using a root configuration hack.
I installed the ACL Manager and because of the site errors it was unable to run.
Sander in support replied in less than 10 minutes and with access to the database and eventually the site, fixed it. I cannot recommend this quality of service enough and it is embarrassing that it only cost €15 for 6 months support.
If you are like me after spending hours on google trying to find answers save your self the problem and install this if only for the support.

I'm allready using ACL more than a year and it's the first component to install on any website. Just a great component that works perfectly out of the box.

This week I noticed I renewed my license 2 times. Which isn't that much of use as it's a license to use on multiple websites.

After contacting the support and explaining my mistake they refunded my 2nd renewal! Great job for refunding a mistake I've made.

A very useful extensions for anyone looking to get to grips with Joomla ACL, permissions, and user groups.
I experienced some permission and ACL issues after upgrading from Joomla 2.5 to 3.1, the ACL Manager extension fixed most of the issues. Any remaining issues or problems I have had with ACL have been resolved very quickly by the fantastic support provided by ACL Manager. Can't thank them enough.
