    Hi,

    we've installed s2member and have a couple of questions and their community support forum is poor at best in responding...hoping someone here might be able to help??

    We have added all the members to the site....have a category list showing how many businesses are in each category. Now we need to be able to click on a category and have all the businesses in that category come up...then click into a business for details. Is this possible thru the plugin??

    TIA

    To answer your subject question, yes, we use s2member and are very satisfied with it. We've found the community support to be very good in responding.

    Regarding your second question -- you describe adding members to your site, and then ask about listing businesses in different categories....

    If by "businesses" you mean posts, and categories are actually wordpress categories, then the typical WordPress category.php and single.php theme pages address this.

    If by "businesses" you mean S2members, and by categories you mean member levels (?), then it sounds like you're describing a member directory.

    I don't know if s2member provides a directory system as part of its built-in functionality, but we've been able to implement this ourselves by creating a page to list members, and another one to list a single member's details.

    Member directory functionality is also possible by adding a member directory plugin. I'm about to consider "Members List" for our project as it looks promising.

    let me see if I can explain this a bit better and show you what we're doing and maybe you can suggest something better.

    membership directory > categories list

    My client site is a resource directory for the building industry. Is there a way to have the category (trade, occupation, specialty) show up on a page and then when you click it the appropriate business (the company providing that service) will show up with all their contact info?

    I think we're missing the Members List component??

    Thanks for any help......

    The Members List plugin is unrelated to S2Member. I mentioned it as one option to generate a member directory.

    There are different ways to accomplish what you have in mind. If this were my project I would add a custom profile field in S2Member for building category, and then create template pages for a list of businesses in a category, and for a single business detail.
