About Role Hierarchy
Often, it makes sense that the Administrator role is higher than the Subscriber role, but that’s not how WordPress’ roles system works. It works on a simpler system: either a user/role can doing something or it cannot do something. This is problematic when you want to allow certain users to create, edit, promote, or delete other users because it means they have full access to perform these actions on any user on the install.
What this plugin does is provide a numeric system (“position”) for each role. So, you might give the Administrator role a position of 100 and the Editor role a position of 80. Then, you can allow Editors to create new users without allowing them to create new Administrators, for example.

What’s included with Purchase?
The Members Pro package includes access to all premium Members add-on plugins and support for 1 year. If you go with the All-Access Package option, you’ll also get access to the Exhale theme and all its skins.
How many sites per license?
Members and its add-ons are licensed under the GNU GPL, version 2+. This means you can use them and get support on as many sites as you want. I do encourage developers working with clients to purchase a membership for the client.
What’s Your Support Policy?
Officially, my available hours are Mon-Fri from 8-4 p.m. (Central time zone). However, I’m often available outside of that schedule, including weekends. I personally review and/or answer all support questions within 24 hours. Support includes live chat via our Slack group, so you’ll often have help within minutes during official hours.
Does Your Plugin Support Gutenberg?
Yes. Members and all its add-ons work fine with the WordPress block editor (Gutenberg) as well as the classic editor.
I’m also working on a new add-on plugin specifically for block-specific permissions.
