[resolved] Looks like a great plugin, Can it accomplish this? (4 posts)

    So far, from what i can tell this plugin looks like a great solution for membership solutions on WordPress sites. Also, to sweeten the deal, I am surprised such a solution comes free. This is truly astounding.

    I am interested in how the plugin works though. Before i download and install the plugin I am looking to grasp a knowledge of its capabilities to ensure I have found the right solution.

    What i am looking to have is a custom user role which I will refer to as 'Premium_Member'. The functionality I am looking for PMPro to accomplish is for when the user subscribes / purchases a membership, their user role to be changed to 'Premium_Member', or for that matter any other user role I specify. Also, can it be configured to once a membership expires, to revert a user back to their original role, or to any other role that I specify?

    If that is indeed how this plugin works, and I have overlooked some clear documentation on this matter then please excuse my ignorance and oversight. Otherwise I would appreciate any reply as to the way this plugin accomplishes and handles its members and their permissions etc.

    Thank you to anyone who takes the time to respond.

    PMPro creates a "membership level" alongside the traditional "roles" inside of WordPress. You can then limit access and activity via membership levels. (See the docs at http://www.paidmembershipspro.com)

    You can however attach a membership level to a role via code like this:

    Good luck.

    I can't seem to find this new "membership level" role in any role assignment dialogs... currently using the User Access Manager and User Role Editor plugins to manage these settings. Is this a hidden role by chance?

    Membership level is not a role or stored in usermeta. The relationship is managed by the pmpro_memberships_users table.
