The Konnichiwa membership plugin delivers what it promises to a membership site with gamification system. I was on the lookout for a plugin that allows users to subscribe with points earned for actions performed on the site. Thank you creators. PS: It would be wonderful if you can add buttons for users to login and/or register in the page which it says "Content available for registered members only".

I remember using Konnichiwa! for a site I built several years ago. It worked great then. Now I'm using it for a site I'm building in 2019. Even if it's not updated for the current WordPress update, it still works perfectly.

I tried several other membership plugins before I found Konnichiwa! that were nowhere near as good; each had some fatal flaw where something either didn't work right or just looked shabby AF. Konnichiwa! solved my earlier membership site problems, and it allows for awesome content protection which is especially useful if you're going to be selling digital products because you don't want them accessible through a URL that somebody puts on their own website! In my case I have my own PDF eBook that I needed to protect from pirating that way, and now I'm all set. Konnichiwa! works well with the email autoresponder Arigato, also by Kiboko Labs. Both together also work well with the free User Registration plugin which replaces WordPress’ klunky native registration process to allow your users to choose their own passwords and keeps them out of your Admin area.

Simple yet versatile. I've tried out a bunch of membership plugins, but this one is the easiest to use. It meets my needs just perfectly. I registered wordpress forum just to rate it 5 stars. Keep it updated. I really love it.
