User Role Subscriptions

Plugin Manages user subscriptions by creating and deleting user accounts while managing their payments.

Installation This plugin does one thing and one thing only, it is designed to create user accounts for new subscribers and delete user accounts of expired subscribers. This plugin does not manage access rights to anypages or posts.

You will need to install a Membership Plugin designed to restrict users access to posts. Look here for a plugin: WordPress Members Only Plugins. I've installed Member Access, but this is purely a preference.

You shouldn't need to modify any of your paypal account settings in order for this system to work. I've provided every option that I could find for you to configure and override your default account settings, right from this configurations area. I've also preset many default settings so that this plugin will run right out of the box.

  1. Upload byrd_rolessubscriptions folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Set the configurations for your Subscription in the wp admin
  4. Insert <!-- byrd_subscription() --> into any Page.
  5. Insert <!-- byrd_login() --> into any Page.

TIP: This plugin cannot be installed via the wordpress automatic installer because wordpress is placing the plugin inside of another folder which is causing the plugin to not display. If you don't have the ability to ftp into your site and get this installed properly, just send me an email and I'll install it for you. TIP: If you have problems getting the email notifications to save, check that the file permissions are set to 755.

Overview Thank you for downloading the Membership Subscription Manager from JonathonByrd.com. This plugin is not designed to be fully featured. The goal with this plugin was to get a useable Membership Subscription Manager up and running with all of the features necessary to a healthy membership website. I've only put a couple of days into this plugin but I'm offering it for free to the WordPress Community.

I will be continuing to develop a lot of features into this plugin over the next week and I'll be selling it as a Pro version on my site. I would appreciate you buying me a beer with a small donation if you begin to make money off of this plugin. If you need assistance with traffic and conversion rates, visit my website, as all of the tools I'm providing are geared to helping you make a profit.

Features Walkthrough

  1. **Subscription Widget There are two ways to paste your subscription information into your pages or posts. The first is the PHP method. I suggest that you only use this if you are comfortable with PHP coding.

The second method is to paste this HTML comment directly into the html editor in the wordpress admin area. Simply edit your page or post, then change the editor to HTML and paste this code.

  1. Login Widget The same rules apply to the two following snippets. The first is for php developers, the second is for the wordpress editable pages.

  1. Confirmation Page The confirmation page will wrap itself with your template and show as a receipt to your new Member. No adjustments are needed for this page.

  2. Cancel Return Page If the user cancels the payment process before completing the transaction, they will be redirected to this page.

  3. Notification Emails These email notifications are just simple html/php files that I've saved in the plugins directory. You have your choice of opening those files directly, or using the tiny text areas on the Notifications tab.

This email system is super simple to use. I've provided you with a list of variables that are received from the paypal transaction, you can paste any of these variables into the Notifications Emails and the system will automatically replace them with their value.

  1. Completely Managed Memberships The system is designed to create new user accounts, using the persons paypal email and real name. The system will auto generate a password for the user, so you should provide your members with the ability to change their passwords so that they will remember how to login. * Signup A new account is created and an email notification is emailed. * Renewed An email notification of the accepted payment is emailed. * Expired The users account is deleted and an email notification is emailed. * Canceled The users account is deleted and an email notification is emailed.
