I am wanting to build a members area for my wordpress site. I do not understand the wordpress system enough to integrate it 100%, as it is only a small members set up to few a couple of pages – and I don’t want members seeing the dashboard. (Also as I do not want to clog up the template menu with templates for single pages – that won’t make sense for my client – I would prefer to avoid that technique)
My thoughts are to set up wordpress so it’s runs in a subfolder but accessed my the main domain address. Technique here
Then I was going to set up a folder with my own pages, that I can have control over.
