Support » Plugin: Restrict User Access - Membership Plugin with Force » Can you explain “Synchronization with User Roles” please?

  • Resolved Prometheus Fire

    (@prometheus-fire)


    I’m looking for a lightweight content restriction method, that can support dripped content. I want to make use of user roles as much as I can and I hate all the overhead that comes with the fully-loaded membership plugins (registration forms, complicated leveling and so on).

    I need to understand how your user roles synchronization works. The use case I’m thinking of is to create a user account using either Formidable or Gravity Forms. These will create the user account based on a custom user role. Then, how does your plugin tie-in? When I create the user role and setup the synchronization with the level in the plugin, all the restriction rules that I set in the user level get automatically applied to the user role?

    That said, I also want to confirm that your plugin does not handle user registration (I see this as a good thing, if I’m understanding this correctly). Your plugin looks nice and I’m always on the lookout for power lightweight plugins that have a finely-tuned feature set and don’t try to do too much, or do all-the-things.

    Thanks!

    Yes, if you create an Access Level and synchronize it with a role, any users having that role will automatically get the level. Any restrictions or capabilities you add to the level will be applied to the users.

    The plugin currently has no registration functionality, but it is on the roadmap. That being said, it will most likely be lightweight and optional to use.

    Let me know if this answers your questions.
