private logins for using wpmu dev membership subscription. (5 posts)

    Hi I am completely new to WordPress, but I think, after reading as much as I can, this would be the place to ask my question.

    I would like to do the following using wpmu dev membership:

    1) Create a mainsite for members to subscribe as a member

    2) Once registered as a member, they will get their own website (sub-domain) that is private (only for their viewing).

    3) Members can not create new subdomains

    4) Members can be affiliates and refer to my main page, using their own affiliate link.

    How does one set this up?

  2. You have to ask about wpmudev products on their site. They're behind a paywall.

    Hey Marshall!

    You would first need to have WordPress multisite enabled: http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    Then you could use something like ProSites (totally optional, you can allow them to create sites without this, this just lets you setup a Pay to Blog system) and Affiliate to allow your members to create their site.

    We even have a great Template Plugin. http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/new-blog-template/

    This: Members can not create new subdomains

    Would be tricky, unless you wanted to manually create the site yourself, then you'd need to build a contact/request form instead.

    As far as being behind a paywall, that's a little inaccurate. We do have a membership requirement, but that is only for ongoing support and upgrades. What you pay for is the team behind the plugins. You can cancel membership at any time and use the plugins as long as you would like on as many sites as you wish.

    The only two exceptions to the rule are the two plugins that require a live API to host, and those are our whitelabel videos and antisplog.

    Lemme know if you have any more questions!

  4. Did you change and people can download your plugins without membership?

    Otherwise, that's what I meant by paywall :) (Also I'd rather people went to you and paid for support of your stuff, cause I want you to make a living!)

    What I meant was that I have this idea to use wordpress as a "system".
    Members will pay to my "system" to have a access to their own personal tracking system( ie. a subscription to a "fitness log" tracker). The system will keep track and alert the members of their own personal goals/deadlines. Members, once subscribed, will only be able to log into their own "accounts" (privacy).
