I have setup the leaky paywall plugin and for the most part it appears to be working – that is, it restricts non-subscribers from accessing more than x articles unless they subscribe.
I do have a couple of issues though.
Firstly, I have added some subscribers in manually but they don’t receive any notification and they are added to the user group with a role of ‘None’. I receive a basic notification that user has been added (which user, no idea). If they want to access articles they can only login by going to the login screen and selecting “Forgot password” which then lets them reset the password. This is not ideal. Otherwise I can go to the user page and generate a password for them and send it on. Again, not ideal.
Secondly, with the Paypal IPN set to the website where the paywall is installed, any paypal transaction now adds that user to my subscription site, even though the transaction was for a product or service purchased on another site. This has been a disaster for me today, although if the email notifications aren’t working then perhaps I am the only one who noticed!
Have you seen this before? Is there a step in the setup I have neglected?
