Membership transforms your WordPress website into a fully functional membership site.
This is just an awful plugin which wouldn't work at all as intended.
Plugin does not operate as advertised. Support is useless, and company REFUSES to provide a refund for the plugin. (FYI, this is a paid plugin)
I have been a long-time paying customer and been trying to get a bug resolved (members are not automatically moving from one level to the next) for months now. Have shared all the data with the team, they promise now and then they will solve it, they bring out a new version and the problems still persist.
I suggest to stay away and use one of the other membership plugins.
I can't speak highly enough of the support staff for this plugin. I had some problems with the rules not applying to my pages and duplicate levels. Apparently this was a database problem.
As a new WordPress user I have limited skills and had tried everything I could to fix it. As a last resort I allowed one of the staff to access the back end of my site. He fixed my issue quickly and now it's working perfectly!
Thanx wpmudev! :)
The tutorials go through all the config options, but don't provide any instructions for getting stated and USING the plugin.
I switched instead to wp-members from RocketGeek. It's MUCH easier to get started, and advanced features like filter and action hooks make it very powerful.
For a paid plugin ("pro" version), I am a little disappointed.
This plugin is easy to set-up, and the rules/access levels are great - beyond that it just doesn't seem to have the critical features to run a serious membership site.
The sign-up form only collects a username and email address. If you want to collect a member's mailing address or even their full name, you're out of luck. The only work-around is to install Buddypress.
Membership also doesn't have any kind of import tool, so if you have an existing membership database, you'll have to install another plugin to do your importing. This isn't too big of a deal, but still, from a paid plugin called "Membership", I really expected a lot more.
On the plus side, the support forum is very helpful - on the minus side, access costs $20 a month,
I was not impressed. I could not figure out how to set access levels. There was to much set up required. In general I thought that it was a poorly planned plugin
this works great, but Pro version is just superb!
Works like a charm!
