Members — Role Hierarchy is an add-on plugin for the Members plugin, which adds a hierarchical role system.
Hierarchical roles are important when you want to allow “lower” level users, such as Editors, to create, edit, promote, or delete users without giving them access to a higher role, such as Administrator.
