Excellent Plugin with Room for Growth
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin is my go-to for memberships- and not because it is free. It is easy to configure, has excellent integrations and works really well. I didn't give it 5 stars because there are some areas for improvement.

Strong Points:

  • Easy to configure
  • Plays nicely with other plugins
  • Supports some awesome integrations

Areas of improvement:

  • version 2.0 has been forthcoming for a long time. I believe it will some of the concerns I have below.
  • Multiple memberships per user is needed badly. I know this is probably tough code to write, but it definitely needs it.
  • I believe PMPro should be more involved in the login process to help keep customers on the front end. It manages every other aspect of the customer experience except logging in. It can be surprisingly difficult to get a user from wp-admin back to the front end of the site. In the past, they have deferred to other plugins like Theme My Login to manage this, but when your plugin is so useful and important, do you really want to leave this piece up to the fates and schedule of another developer not associated with your organization? I understand not re-inventing the wheel, but handling the login aspect just makes sense for PMPro. Additionally, a login widget would be sweet (again, I know this is usually deferred to Theme My Login).

That's really all I have. Based on internet searches, the developer seems very engaged and always active. This is a huge plus. It is developers like this that have made WordPress into what it is.

I can only hope the greatest of success for Stranger Studios, and this excellent plugin. Please don't make me beg for 2.0.

Please finish 2.0.
I'm begging you.
With tears in my eyes and a heavy heart, I beg of you to complete 2.0

OK. There. I've done it. I've begged.

Undignifiedly Yours,

Works great!

I am looking to set up membership site for our small business. This plugin is a perfect fit.

85% lovely

I appreciate all the hard work that went into this plugin. I'd rate it 5-star when I can select multi-level access options.

Membership level 1 has access to only level one.
Membership level 2 has access to both level 1 and 2

and so on, such that the most expensive level membership provides all access to all items.

Currently, I'm allowed to select only ONE level of membership access per category.

It’s pretty great

I used PMPro as the foundation of the membership system for a major trade organization. I was able to use the built-in hooks to send membership data to their CRM software, it all came together really well.

My only drawback — the fifth missing star from this review — is that the default HTML in their templates is basically garbage. I built my own front-end templates and wrote a custom plugin to replace them, but even digging through their templates to figure out how the functionality came together… not a good time.

I hope the next major overhaul of PMPro takes this into account. But don't let it scare you off from using the plugin; it provides a massive amount of functionality, and it "just works".

Oh, also their customer support is ++++

Good plugin for membership site
By ,

I'm using this plugin on one site and it was fairly easy to set up membership levels and content. I used this plugin after trying out another membership plugin that did not offer as much customization.

So far, very happy, and the site has been up and running for just over one year.

Pretty good!

The plugin is free and works fine for me (with a couple of kinks and imperfections eg. login/logout) but easily fixed with a bit of editing. i'm no developer but know how to do a bit of code and just use it for a simple recurring subscription. :)

Very good plugin

Very nice plugin for multilevel membership with payment. Would be perfect if it was more flexible on checkout workflow, paypal integration (like custom pages) and payment forms.
