WordPress “User Switching” plugin

Sometimes people write to say they can’t edit a certain section of a site. This can be hard to troubleshoot from afar, especially if you are using a rights management plugin like Role Scoper, Press Permit, etc.

Well I ran across this awesome plugin today. It lets you (ie. the site admin) masquerade as other users. That way when someone says “I don’t have an edit button on that page”, you can go try it yourself and see if they do, and then verify whether you’ve fixed the problem or not.
