Maven Member

Description

Maven Member™ is less about membership and more about restricting access to certain areas of your site. While we are planning on payment integration options, the main problem this plugin solves is: do you have sensitive content but don’t need a plugin that takes over your site or requires hours of setup? Bingo!

Documentation is in process and feedback is welcome. You can use the forum or please ask submit any questions or suggestion to mavenmember@gmail.com! Thanks!

Features:

  • Restrict access to posts, pages, and categories
  • Login inline with content rather than using the WP login page
  • Create your own custom registration form
  • Hold new registrations for admin moderation/approval
  • Customizable templates for login and registration
  • Captcha in the registration form

Screenshots

  • reCaptcha configuration
  • Categories
  • Registration custom fields
  • Logout widget

Installation

Maven Members™ is designed to run “out-of-the-box” with no modifications to your WP installation necessary.

Basic Install:

  1. Upload the /maven-members/ directory and its contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress®
  3. Use the wizard to create a new role

   a. Asign the role to existing users.
   b. Protect some categories. Any post under those categories, will need a login (you can customize it in Settings / Advance)

Also, you can protect some pieces of a post using the folowing shortcode

[mvn-block roles=”my-role”] this is my text [/mvn-block]

To show the registration form use

[mvn-registration]
