IMHO as a dev – this is the best membership plugin out there.
The only one, and I have tried them all.
Because it is elegant code.
It’s set up in such a way as to allow very specific customization IN CODE
clean and simple
a beautiful core
One of the most important things to me over the years with PMPRO is the interface is minimal and the integration system is light weight.
There are so many ways to configure membership systems for my clients that PMPRO has long been the only solution that actually works long term
PMPRO has achieved this by not putting invasive nonsense into the admin panel…
like nags, promos, alerts, tracking and advertising
Over the years this has slowly started to change…
There are nags starting…
There are promos starting…
The notice on the bottom of every page begging “please rate us on WP”
The “please buy a membership” thing
The addon promos “check out this addon”
Mixed feelings about that.
On one hand: I GET IT
PMPRO needs to make money to survive
Every client I have developed for with PMPRO I have had them buy at least a 1year membership on top of me paying for my own membership twice, just to hand over some money (and fyi: never have I needed to file a support request)
On the other hand: PLZ BE CARFUL
PMPRO is starting down the path of “nagging, beggary and promos” that is the main reason I do not use any other membership plugins…
Still, hands down the only membership plugin to use for WP.
Every time I see any other plugin I laugh, pull it out and replace it with PMPRO
That’s because I am a developer.
And this code was clearly written for professionals who need things to work.
Anyone trying to build a membership site using the other plugins like MemberPress, S2 and UltimateMembers has been swindled by marketing and the allure of “drag and drop”.
Please remain the “best plugin for developers who are serious about membership site development” – do not make any WYSIWYG drag/drop junk. Stick with your tried and true CLEAN CODE BASE. I will remain loyal.
