WP-Members™ is a free membership management framework for WordPress® that restricts content to registered users.
Above all, this plug-in is fulfilling my needs to 90%.
And it does make its job to 100%.
There was just one small drop of bitterness, probably with my 3.5de-version: After installation on the first page of WP-Members/Properties there have been a "snow storm" under the warnings - only white space! Why? A fatal error resulting from an undefined function call:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function wpmem_a_rss_box() in C:\xampp\htdocs\sujh01\wp-content\plugins\wp-members\admin\tab-options.php on line 36
So I edited the file, deleted the line and - it works! I don't know much about programming, but the properties were visible and the blocking of posts and pages works fine. So, give it a damn, ;-).
Thanks a lot for that great plug-in!

Short review: Just install it now!
Long review: From well-written to well-documented code to many great tutorials, and from frequent updates to a very responsive and friendly developer, I can confidently say, based on my own experience, that this is the best free membership plugin I've found so far. I've researched and reviewed (almost) every free members-related plugin out there, and this one just beats them all hands down IMO.
There lots of work in making a membership plugin and WP-Members has many details crafted in WP-Members however I would like to point out feedback which may be helpful.
- The support forum or for Premium support utilizes a blog format which if there were just a few post would be sufficient. I suggest using a forum script to provide a community support environment
- Add the ability to include an avatar or image for the member, this is all too basic and should be straight forward for non coders.
- CAPTCHA is counter productive and is a nuisance, therefore a human reaction field would be a better option.
The plugin has a form maker which is possibly the only membership plugin which offers this. You can add custom fields with a number of field types.
Gratitude for a great plugin.
