Solid Plugin
By ,

Memberships are a bit different breed of cat for each installation. This plugin is amazingly versatile and solid in it's implementation.

Cant set it up

This all seems to hard to set up and can't find any info or suggestions on how to set it up. Would love some help.

Buggy. Unreliable. Poorly Supported
By , for WP 4.5.2

I thought this would be the very simple membership plugin I needed. I've used S2 Member on previous sites, which works great, but was a bit more than I needed for this project. Unfortunately, Membership 2 is not going to work for me: It hasn't been updated for 7 months, the most recent update of WordPress appears to have broken it, and support is slow. I had been considering the WPMUDEV premium option, as it looked like a good deal for all those plugins, tools, plus support. But unlikely now. Switching to Simple WP Membership.

Great and easy to use
By , for WP 4.5

I had always used custom solutions for managing permissions because I had never found anything that would allow me to do what I wanted. With Membership 2 Pro and the programming hooks, I have a solid foundation for site development. I recommend it to anyone from novice to master.

Great Approach But One Critical Issue
By , for WP 4.5

I ve been testing several membership plugins, most of them turned out to be unsuitable. This one has a different approach, very clean configuration with a lot of features and provides the best functionality for free memberships I have seen. Lots of plugins are anoying in that matter because they dont let you skip the cart. I cannot tell anything about paid memberships because I did not evaluate the payment features yet. I found only one drawback, otherwise I would give 5 stars. If somebody signs up for a membership, the email adress wont be approved by double-opt-in - although the native WordPress sign up provides a solution which could have been utilized. This drawback maybe dont bother if you use paid memberships. But if you offer a free membership for lead generation purpose this is a big issue. I bought a premium plugin and now I have to spend a lot of time to find a suitable sign-up-plugin to work around this issue, which is not easy because you want critical functions to work together. I hope there will be an update from wpmudev to fix it because double-opt-in should be standard these days, no matter if there is a paywall or not.

Had searched for awhile trying to find a membership plugin that was easy to use, but had all the features I needed. Membership 2 fits the bill. It makes setting up a membership site a breeze.

Major Login issues on IE & Edge
By , for WP 4.4.2

Membership 2 is a vast improvement over the first version, although some aspects can still be quite tricky to figure out exactly how it works.

But there is a major issue with this plugin, and it still hasn't been resolved 4 months after it was reported. Simply put, if you have more than one tab / window open, you can't login to the membership front end.

Although there is this circumvention (or you could try to follow the WPMUDev suggestion of adding the website to the trusted sites for the browser), try explaining that to hundreds of users all over the world, when it is fairly standard practice to expect a login to work
