If you are a designer and need to allow only certain access to the backend of your site, you MUST have this! It is the easiest thing I have ever done in web design. Had just a few bumps and Sander was right on top of it and I was up and running in minutes! I am so happy I found this!!!!!

It's Friday night at about 7.00pm, I'm still working at home, client calls 'I'm locked out', I try everything I know to no avail. Think I'll get ACL Manager (which I've been meaning to) and see if the diagnostics fix it, no they don't. Being a hopeful kind of guy I contacted Sander at ACL thinking I may get an answer Monday or Tuesday. Oh no - 10 minutes, yes 10 minutes for a response and a further 15 minutes to fix my database problem (which you didn't have to do), unbelieveable Sander, you get the prize for most amazing support action of 2013, thanks again...

I found the ACL Manager extremely easy to use. It identified and very quickly fixed a number of issues on my sites. However there was still a problem. I asked for support and Sander replied immediately. Although my problem had nothing at all to do with ACL Manager he quickly solved it free of charge. Great software and excellent support - what more could anyone ask for. Thank you Sander.

I'm not sure my problem was entirely ACL related but Sander fixed it immediately. Such wonderful support is well worth the small charge.

ACL is the most cost-effective investment I have ever made.
After migrating a 2.5 site to Joomla 3.1 there was a plethora of SQL issues.
I received some support from my specialist Joomla web host, but it was only after purchasing ACL (which came with excellent support from Sander), was the migration fully completed.
I will definitely maintain an ongoing subscription.

Love at first sight!!! Really a very useful tool to avoid mishaps and unintended corruption by users with little knowledge of backend administration. It is an install and play package and highly recommended for all developers or website providers.

I needed an extension to allow my end user limited administrative access to the backend to manage Virtuemart. This was a very easy way to complete this task. Sander's customer support is very fast and to the point. I can recommend this extension.

Like rather a lot of other people I expect, I bought this extension as a last desperate gamble to see if I could avoid a complete re-install...
Having happily played with the new ACLs in 2.5 everything was fine until I went into production and tripped over some leftover stuff.
This extension enabled me to see what was missing and pointed me in the right direction to debug my site. Although it doesn't fix everything by magic it really helped with diagnosis, and I can see that it will be really useful when I want to start adding extra layers to the user classes. Commercial, yes, but absolutely worth a few bucks to save me hours of effort.
AND great support from Sander when I had a problem!!

Absolutely brilliant component.

We migrated from 1.0.15 to 2.5 . All seemed well until people started moving categories around, which in turn wrecked the assets table, then users without Super User access were locked out.

This component will save you time, stress and money.

Well done to the developer.

I had an login issue which was beyond my ability to fix. I downloaded ACL as a last ditch effort to solve it.

I posted on the Joomla Forums about my issue and how the ACL diagnostics didn't find what was wrong either...and much to my surprise the support for ACL found my post and stepped my through the fix (which still involved using phpmyadmin as well as the ACL diagnostics).

High praise for this extension.
