managing membership (3 posts)

    I am running a project of an e-commerce website. The project got a problem in a membership. I have tried many plugins on a membership, and now I am using S2member for my member system. However, I am still looking for another function that is not supported in S2memeber.

    I’d like to create two kinds of main members in the website. One is a customer and another one is a seller. And each kind of member has different levels depends on their sell.

    I struggled on the two kinds of membership. Could it be possible to just use two different member system or two different plugins? But it seems like all membership will save member information in the same path or the same form.
    Is there any member system or solution that is match with these goals?

    Any suggestion and help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

    This would require some custom programming.

    You can use a plugin like Role Scoper (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/role-scoper/) to create two roles with the abilities you want to give them (i.e. some can post products, others can't).

    Then you would hook into s2member's hook that runs after checkout. Here is how it is done with Paid Memberships Pro (another membership plugin in the repository here)


    So members of a certain level would be changed to the appropriate role.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Just out of curiosity, very sorry if this is a silly question, but does S2member allow you to protect portions of the Admin?

    Has been so long since I used it myself personally, I can't remember.
