[resolved] Security and WP-Members (2 posts)

    First up - great work done with this. I only have a small site but want to restrict some content to Club members only and this fits the need.

    About Security and a few questions:
    No I get those options for "Activate" and "Deactivate this user".
    Do these apply only to the members login provided by WP-Members or to both the "normal" login and that provided by WP-Members?

    If I have an admin set as not activated can he or she still log in under the "normal" login?

    What I'd like to be able to do is to restrict only Subscribers to be able to log in using WP-Members so I don't have another login that might be prone to attacks.I use Wordfence and am not sure if it will read and block attempts to the WP-Members login. If a Subsciber gets in I don;t care.

    Thanks!

    Users are users... WP-Members will assign users to whatever the default role you have set in your WP settings, which for most people is "subscriber."

    If a subscriber logs in via wp-login.php, they aren't going to have access to anything other than editing their profile data (i.e. what an admin sees in the dashboard is different than what a subscriber sees).
