Want to create a WP Membership site (4 posts)

    Hi

    Need help in creating a Membership site.

    I run a WP based website for freelance Indian models and want to convert it into a Membership site.

    I need models to register (paid annual subscription) and create their profile page (post in a particular category) with their pictures and other details. I will create a contact form using Jetpack for each model so that registered clients can contact the models directly via contact form. Or if their is any better way pls suggest. If the models cancel their subscription at some time, I want that either their profile page (post that they created) shud be converted as draft or the contact form should not appear on the post that they created.

    On the other hand, I need clients to register (and pay a fee or subscription) and post their requirements/assignments in a particular category. These requirements/assignments should be accessible only to paid model members.

    So basically there are 2 type of Members that I need -
    Models - Shud be able to create a post
    - Shud be able to access client requirements/assignments in a particular category say "Models".
    Clients - Shud be able to access Models contact form that comes below their profile
    - Shud be able to create a post in a particular category say "assignments" only.
    - how can I limit the number of posts clients can create.

    Whatever happened? Were you able to do this? I'm thinking of trying this plugin but I'm concerned with the volume of issues and potential for drama. Has this been resolved and if so, what did you do?

    Hi guys,

    Membership can certainly help make the subscription aspect of the described project simpler, but there are things that it isn't specifically designed to handle right out of the box, such as posting limitations.

    You might be able to use Membership to handle subscriptions and then use Role Scoper to further configure access for Models.

    As for post limits, you could try Bainternet Post Creation Limits.

    I'm not sure how Role Scoper handles some of its features, as it involves more than just standard WordPress user role configuration. Thus, I'm not sure how well it works alongside Membership.

    But then, Membership does provide url-based restrictions (URL Groups) which can often be used to get around potential complications/incompatibilities with other plugins.
