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.

Dear ACL Manager,

After months of slow performance on our site, site crashes, and a failed launch caused by a migration script we used called CMigrator, your extension was able to automatically repair our asset table in about 5 minutes. This improved the performance of our site by about 300%.

Thank you so much.

I bought this extension a while ago on a bit of a whim, thinking it might fix an issue i was having at the time.
Now I'm at the point were I actually need it (converting a 2.5 site to 3.0). I had one issue which turned out to be Joomla renaming some db tables, so I put in a support request in the evening and woke up in the morning with the explanation an fix.
Great component, great support.

I used this extension to clean up my sites that I had Migrated over from Joomla 1.5. Other reviews do a good job of highlighting the ease of use. Just want to pile on as well. I was surprised to find over 200 fixes needed (for each site I had - even the small sites!) that had been incorrect since I had migrated them over 1 year ago. The "migrator" I used was able to move content but it did leave many ACL issues behind in the process. Simple click of a button to fix what would have taken hours to do by hand - even assuming I had perfect knowledge of how Joomla ACL worked! Well done...
