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.

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.
