WP-Members™ is a free membership management framework for WordPress® that restricts content to registered users.
All in all if you are looking to set up a member section on your site and want to hide content this is worth a look.
There are a lot of other plugins that do this but they require you to pony up quite a bit of cash to get the same basic functionality. If you are a relatively new user this plugin is designed to be user friendly. The settings pages are straight forward and blend perfectly with the WordPress admin interface. Hats off to the developer for not making a separate WordPress admin menu but rather nesting the plugin settings where they should belong, under the settings menu.
If you know what you are doing and like to dabble with code, this plugin is highly extensible and has extensive documentation. Although I would like to see a feature for hiding the admin toolbar for logged in users and a redirect for default admin pages based on the user role, it in no way deterred me from using this plugin. Those items were easily handled with a few additions to the functions file.
Note: If you are using this plugin also take a look at the WordPress Access Control plugin. I found that these two plugins together unlocked some serious power on the WordPress back end.
Free version is amazing, but going premium unlocks even more amazing things. Loads of customising available and 10/10 support!
This plugin is remarkably clean and easy to install, configuration, and manage. The documentation is great, and it's very powerful, especially if you add in some of the extensions like PayPal payments and member lists.
Configurable css files, and filter and action hooks are just two of the things that make this plugin so flexible.
I can't stress enough how much I like this plugin and how much it's saved my butt... I've had a couple clients request a login area, and in the past I used to have to install and use 5 different plugins to get all the features we needed. Now with WP-Members, all those features are in one plugin!
The author also responded to one of my noob questions considerably fast (within a couple hours of posting), which made me a super happy camper.
Thanks so much for creating, sharing, and maintaining this plugin! It's going to be my go-to now for future projects. :)
This plugin is wonderful! I also purchased the extra plugin extensions and the support, and I must say the support was amazing. Chad was very helpful (especially since I am not the best at using PHP). I needed the the plugin to do something specific and slightly custom and Chad was there to help me out. He also has a lot of helpful documentation on his site when it come to customizing the plugin to meet your needs.
I would highly recommend this plugin! And spending the $47 for a membership to his site for the plugin extensions and the support is well worth it.
Thanks Chad for all your help!
Very good, however I have taken time to understand the need to add code to each page ... (RTFM :-)
Excellent plugin, exactly what I was looking for. Dont know about the level of support (cause I havent had to use it yet) but the plugin works great.
I've only been playing around with it for a few minutes, but I like the features thus far.
There is a problem with the display of the error message text on the registration form. WordPress 3.8 uses a
wpmem_msg class on the div wrapping the message, and this force line height to zero, causing problems with any messages containing line breaks. This should be easy to fix.
This was fixed by changing the "Stylesheet" option to the option for the "Twenty Thirteen" theme.
This plugin is excellent, easy to use,and with lots of documentation. It is very flexible and highly customizable. It has a lot of features some of which are restricting contents to registered users, user registration, User Profile Update, and Password reset.
After carrying out detailed research, I am fully convinced that this is the most complete Membership plugin available.
I will surely donate to this plugin within the next 3 months.
I personally think that if different categories of pro versions with option of one time payment (rather that yearly subscription) are included, more sales will be recorded for this plugin which will further increase the leadership gap of this great plugin.
Keep up the good and innovative work, Chad!!
After some errors, which I thought were the plugins fault, and after talking with support, I removed everything, and reinstalled wp.
I installed the plugin and it worked as described and the support was very responsive. There were no errors, and everything was smooth.
The plugin is simple to configure, with minimal work, right out of the box. The support was helpful and understanding.
I wanted to run some tests which all passed, because I wanted to make sure it was as strong as it says, and it is...
I do recommend this plugin.
