Web80 Advanced Core - You definitely need this Plugin

    Almost every ADMIN could use this.

    To start, I'll provide an example: Let's say your site has 5 MLs, and you want to provide different content to each of them on their Member Profile page (or any page for that matter).  This may be different Tabs, or the same Tabs with different settings.  How would you do that now - multiple pages?  custom coding?  Plugins that provide control of pages by ML (again, multiple pages would be required)?  Imagine the nightmare in managing multiple pages - forever.

    Now, imagine the ease and simplicity of the following: Copy Web80's Advanced Control Container to your Member Profile page, checkoff the ML(s) you wish to display this to, and then drag/drop your widgets/blocks into the container(s).  So for instance, you could have 3 Containers: 1) highest level ML; 2) lowest level ML; 3) all the others.  In Container 1 you could provide extra content (monetization feature here) other Users can't see; Container 2 could provide minimal content; Container 3 could provide middle-of-the-road content.

    Or how about this one that I've seen many times at github and in SE forums: The ability to display content to ADMINSs or Moderators without others seeing it.  Easy - just drag/drop the stuff you want for only ADMINs to see into a Container, check off the ADMIN box, and voila! - now ADMIN may see content on a page that no one else can.

    I could go on and on, but my hope is that the lightbulbs are beginning to go off in your head by now as to the amazing things you can do with this Plugin.  This Plugin has not only addressed some of my current site needs, but has opened up a world of endless possibilities and uses, especially because it's just so simple to use and it keeps everything right in front of you on the same page in LE. 

    Yes, it's currently free (don't let that scare you), but that's probably the only complaint I have.  You should feel guilty about getting something this valuable for free and consider offering them some coffee/snack$ like I did - the Plugin is easily worth $25-50USD (but much more due to the flexibility it provides because it opens up a world of opportunities and lots of flexibility to all other Plugins you have because it will work with them).

    In case you're interested, you can find my MarketPlace review here --> Web80 Advanced Core Review.

    Yea it did a great job as i wanted a container to house profile answers so ONLY admin could see.

    I use Social Engine Solutions advanced members to have different profile and home pages based on member levels

    SES Advance members is ssssssssssoooooooooooooo good

    So all it does is hide content?

    ==>"So all it does is hide content?"

    Yes sortof, but that's like saying all SE does is let people communicate or all a computer does is display stuff you type or search for.

    It controls which widgets get displayed to who (thus content as you stated) and makes it incredibly easy/quick to do so without requiring jumping through hoops.  It's like the difference between pressing a button to start a car and having to hand crank it for a while first.  

    This adds so much flexibility and functionality to almost any Plugin, and with simplicity.

    I do miss that feature. I like having blocks for member levels. Works great on sites with special content and special users. Hope to see it in the future.

    Glad the review was helpful and even moreso, the Plugin.  To me this Plugin has very high value and I wish they charged for it.  I'm looking forward to requiring customization on this Plugin (to integrate with 3PD Plugin) because I want to support this 3PD more than the coffee$ I gave them.
