Reviews

Forced everyone out and not back in

Don’t use this plugin. I installed it and everyone got logged out. It then wouldn’t allow us back in and caused further problems even when it had been removed.

Frustrating.

Fantastic and great support

The Team at Members Only replied to my support requests quickly and even developed new features that made this plugin even better! It works perfectly now! Thank you Members Only!
