Hi I am trying to figure out how to create a registration system for my website. On many of the pages there will be a link "Click here to register for inside access" Which should take users to a signup page. After they input all their information, they should receive a confirmation email and when they login on sidebar maybe? they will have access to the restricted posts and pages which they didn't have previously.
Does anybody know how I can accomplish this? I have been attempting it with multiple plugins such as members access, etc. but most of these plugins are used for 'wordpress' authors, admins, etc. who are also contributors. They usually take you to the /wp-login.php?action=register page which has wordpress logo and all that. should i just modify the wp-login.php page somehow cosmetically so it looks more like my website? and then after persons are 'registered' how would i make posts/pages available only to them?
I just want regular/almost anonymous users access system almost like a forum registration thing. I have tried s2member plugin and it would have been great if it weren't so integrated with paypal and there was only one level of membership, aka 'free.' I tried to use this plugin without completing the paypal information and it wouldn't activate. I belive signing up via paypal even if free, would be a large deterrant to quick registration.
Thanks for any/all of your help.!!!
