Multiple passwords for same page (5 posts)

    Is it possible to have multiple passwords access the same web page(s)? For instance, once a user has paid to access a certain section of our site we'd like to be able to give that user a unique password with an expiration date - preferably a programmable/automatic expiration date. Meanwhile, another user may have paid for access to the same section of the site a few weeks later and will need a different password and expiration date. Can this plugin accomplish that out of the box or, be easily editable to do these functions: a) multiple passwords to access same section of a site and b) programmable expiration date of the PW/login.
    Also, can the PW/login grant access to a specified section of the site or just the individual page?
    Thank you in advance.

    I think you need to start by setting aside your existing thoughts about how user access, registration, and content restriction works (or works best). You are making this harder than it needs to be.

    User login credentials are ties out to the user. Then you can determine what that user has access to based on whatever criteria (be it certain content, or time, or a combination).

    There are some premium tutorials on user access/restriction based on category or user level on the rocketgeek.com support site.

    So you're saying that WP basic can do these things without plugins?

    No - you could set a password for a post with WP without plugins, but you couldn't set multiple passwords or tie that out to time.

    So your original question was about tying access credentials to the content and I am telling you that to do what you want to do, you need to tie that to the user (which is what the plugin can do).

    Thank you for clarifying, Chad. What about being able to set a time limit where the user access is automatically discontinued on a certain date? Can your plugin, or another, do that?
