    WE are trying to set up our new wordpress site and are stuck with the issue of creating a gateway for our visitors. We would want visitors to register with their email before they are able to see any content on the site. This means a registration form on the home page and some way which ask visitors for their email before they can see content on the site. We have asked for a quote from some wordpress freelancers to convert the site to membership site but we have received quotes around $2000 mark. It looks to high to me. Can you please clarify what's required to achieve a membership site so I can make an informed decision.

    Simplest way would be to use the Members plugin. You can restrict access completely by redirecting all non logged-in vistors to the login page. You can also restrict content based on user role as well as creating your own custom roles.

    If you want to charge people for access, you're probably going to have to purchase a premium plugin.
