Member-Deactivation after x days (automatically) (11 posts)

    Hi there,

    I still search for a plugin/hack/script to deactivate member (in reader-status) after one month. For sure, it's no problem to bring them manually to a pending status. But I'd like to have it automatically (there will be many, that's the problem).

    After this month I (as the admin) will reactivate them manually and set them from pending to reader status. During this function the counter will be reset to again one year. It's like at the beginning: After (EVERY) changing their status from pending to reader the counter shell start from the beginning.

    I guess it's not a BIG thing, but I have actually no idea ;-D Probably there is someone helping me out? :-)

    Thanx!
    Sebastian

    Hiya!

    Hmm I'm not completely sure I understand *exactly* what you're after but it sounds like you need time limited access to your site.

    Do you also need to control access to content and/or charge for access?

    Either way, check out Membership which I think will do what you ask for.

    Cheers!
    Phil

    Yes, I ask for "time limited access" - For any other controls I do use Role Scoper - BUT, maybe it's better to change to your suggestion 'membershop' - it includes both options. Thank you! :-)

    Hi rockbaer, Membership doesn't provide role editing but it does provide role integration so you can still associate a role with a membership level that you create.

    You could always use those two plugins together. :)

    I gave it a shot... but it doesn't work very good in my case... so I've chosen a different solution for the different content-area.

    BUT still the question for time limited subscription. I need only this option for each member, nothing else, no further stuff.

    Regards
    Sebastian

    Hi Sebastian, if I understand you correctly, you could still use Membership only for a time-limited subscription.

    If Role Scoper handles everything you need as far as the different content-area, that's great. You can use Membership's role integration to associate a role with a membership level and then apply a subscription to that.

    Have you given that a shot?

    Yes, but too much in my case.

    Still the question after THIS:

    A (automatically) time limited Membership.

    Hmm, I guess I may be misunderstanding you here. You can definitely achieve an automatically time-limited Membership by creating a membership level, associating your preferred WordPress role with that membership level and then creating a subscription, attaching that membership level to it.

    If that doesn't answer your query, could you give us a bit more detail as to how exactly you'd like this all to work?

    We'll be happy to work through this with ya, just wanted to get as much background information as possible.

    Thanks for you answer and request ;-)

    I have two content-types: For guests and for members (there exist actually only the subscription-possibility for members). For the different versions I do use a really really easy, but effective mini-plugin with Shortcodes ([loggedout]GUEST[/loggedout] and [loggedin]MEMBER[/loggedin]). That's all I need to seperate them.

    Furthermore I set up manually the paid memberships. But after a x days the membership ends. And only THIS I'd like to have automatically. Nothing else! :-)

    Hiya rockbaer,

    Sounds like you may already have the solution you need then?

    With the membership plugin, you ca set up a 'finite' subscription. In other words, they pay to get access and at the appointed time it ends and they lose access - no ongoing subscription required.

    Does that help?

    Thanks!

    @Masonjames

    Yes and no... In my case the membership-plugin is in two ways not the script I've searched for: First of all I didn't work 'clean' - The test user had have access, but without (!) permissions I gave him. In the other hand this script much more I'de like to have. Too many functions!
