Godd idea but...
By , for WP 3.8.1

I like this plugin but for some reason it has a bug that nullifies its functionalities. It does not work with some themes. According to the author, the bug has no apparent solution.
I hope it will soon be fixed.

Amazing !

Great plugin which works find (no bug) !
I tried several useless plugin like User Specific Content or User Content which don't fit the job if you want to provide private area (or post) on your blog. Customer Area works fine and enable to provide a personal content (file, page and user profile) to clients and friends!
It works fine for my photography website: http://www.dfphoto.fr
Try it an like it !

The recent update to the Customer Area has made it incredibly customisable and is so easy to work with. I had a few issues getting everything setup and the support I received from Vincent was top notch! All my problems where resolved within a few hours of reporting them and Vincent had released a update.

I would highly recommend this plugin to anyone who wants to offer their customers a more personal experience. Being able to customise the login screen is fantastic! :)

Thanks a lot Vincent.

The worst
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is one of the worst plugin of this kind.

These guys are nothing but cowboys. Surprised? Let me explain why...

They have updated the version recently
1. has not tested properly
2. They want you to have your test site
3. They expect you to test it to see if there is any issues
4. they won't notify you the situation of what you need to do it earlier
5. Once you click update your site will come up with a blank page
6. You will be frustrated esp if you manage manage multiple sites or could loose your job!
7. You will have to remove it from you wp-content within hosting panel via FTP
8. You will loose all your customer details
9. You install from your previous version and will find the same situation
10. Next morning, you explain to these guys and ask support.
11. They will blame you why you have not backed your files up even though you were not aware of the events approaching you
12. They will offer you the previous version
13. They will not help you by sorting things out within your admin ( it's not their job, that what he said!)
14. They will advise you to hire someone
15. They will be extremely unfriendly, arrogant and unprofessional
16. You will end up getting into heated conversation where they will play race card
17. They will send your future correspondence to junk mail so that you will never get them on your side

"This is my last email to you, don't even loose time answering it, that would go to spam straight away."

This is the language above you will get back..

Now why should people waste money to these COWBOYS who got no idea what they are doing but only to grab money using wordpress platform.

This people should not be allowed to publish any plug in here in first place.

End of...

NO support
By , for WP 3.8

I had an issue and post a question in the forums, nothing in 4 days, when I told in the forums that I wasn't able to wait and I was uninstalling, the developer told me "That is a good Solution for you..."
Nice Customer Service, even if you are offering this plugin for free, you can let your customers/users aware that your are no going to be available for the time being.

Great plugin for a private client area
By , for WP 3.7.1

Great, well written plugin for a secure private area on your website for posting of pages, files and more that your clients (customers) need access to.

Much easier to use than some of the other "client portal" plugins out there!

Soooooo G-O-O-D ! ! !
By , for WP 3.6.1

easy to add files for private review by customers or other subscribers.
same it's also easy to make a (private) webpage for others.
Uploads .pdf's, .jpg's, .doc's and more, I guess.

For me, no compatibility issues with any other plugin or whatsoever, all 100% functioning good.

I give 6 stars to the Plugin Author !

Ps. To re-direct (e.g. subscriber) to their specific private 'home'page I let this plugin work together with Peter's Login Redirect plugin.

Excellent - just what I was looking for!
By , for WP 3.6

I wish I'd found this plugin hours ago! It does exactly what it says on the tin and creates a private area for customers/clients where you can share files with them and create private pages for them. Just what I was looking for!

Best thing is it does this without the fuss and complication of some plugins so it just works out of the box. And it can be extended via the shop to include front end login, messages, groups and notifications.

Saved the day with a website that needed exactly this to share private files with clients.
