Plugin for member-based file sharing? (3 posts)

    Hi everyone!
    I have a quick question regarding membership and file sharing on my site. I am starting a new service providing chiropractors and physical therapists with customized newsletters.
    I am using the SmallBiz theme and my site is hosted thru BlueHost.
    Basically, I want my clients to be able to sign up for a paid membership and be able to have an account page where they can privately upload files for me to see and I can privately upload and share files for each individual to see, like the shared file feature on dropbox.
    Is there a plugin that enables me to do this? I tried the Membership plugin but I can't get the subscription form to show, and even then I'm not sure if I will be able to privately share files with individual users...
    I'm only 15 so any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks :)

    Hi there!

    Most Membership plugins are designed to restrict content access. They will usually allow you to restrict access to pages, posts, content, or features of your site.

    To do what you are asking you will probably need two plugins, one to allow for file uploads, and another to restrict access to the page where can upload them.

    Perhaps something like this http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-client-file-share/
    in conjunction with this http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/membership/ (there is a free LITE version of the Membership plugin if you don't need the whole package)

    Best of luck to you!
