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.
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!!
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 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.
