I want to set up a site with some content available to anyone, and the rest, the bulk of it, available only to registered (not necessarily paid) members. The catch is that members cannot be from a certain set of zipcodes, because my site will be selling information and products that would unduly help my real-world competition.
Software or plug-ins for this seem to be difficult to find, or very complicated in the set-up. I can ftp, follow directions to modify an .htaccess file, and follow directions to modify php, but not much else.
Wishlist comes close, but doesn't allow custom fields, and I need that zipcode field. Register Plus uses the custom fields, but how would I use the zip info? I have been going in circles all day, and would surely love some help untangling this. It can't be that difficult, can it?
