Great Plugin.
I think it's very fit for developers

Ugly space in my footer

Ugly space in my footer with s2member!
Everytime i activate the plugin there are an ugly space in the bottom of my page i have been using it in the past and no problem of that kind before.

The theme is modality free theme i have no intention to start redesign or change the theme.

No PayPal?

The free version seems alright but can't quite do what I desire, but I was told that the Pro version could. As much as s2Members talks about granting the ability to set up PayPal option, you'd think that there would be a PayPal option when seeking to go Pro, but there is none, only Credit Card and BitCoin? Is there a reason for this?

Great Plugin!

I have deleted my comment because I figured out what's wrong.

So far I have nothing but good things to say about s2 member pro. Ive been using it for 4 months, It took a bit to get used to as it was my first time using a membership plugin, but they make it easy with their interface and once you go through all the options and set everything up, it works like a charm. It notifies me of everything thats happening on the back end (new users, cancellations, failed payments, etc etc) and it basically does everything for you. Also I wanted to say the support has been fantastic, thank you to Raam Dev for the INCREDIBLE support, that guy is amazing, thank you so much!!

Verry bad, dont trust them!

Have buy the plugin but its not working with wpml.

They promised a lot but doing nothing, no answer on email anymore.

Lost money for nothing

Plugin is complex but can do a lot and is well supported
By , for WP 4.3.1

I am evaluating a number of membership plugins and options.

Membership plugins like this one are complex, they take time to learn, and sometimes some issues will come up.

Although S2Member is complex, and takes time to learn, volunteers are willing to help, even when users like me get frustrated :)

Perfect !!

I love the fact we can mess with php and else !! Thanks to be compréhensive ;)

Terrible Support -- not worth hassle -- find alternative
By , for WP 4.3.1

I highly suggest you find an alternative piece of software.

I wasn't going to write this, i wanted to give them a chance to keep to their end of the deal and give me the support i need.

I have gone through each loop they have thrown at me to "hopefully" have them find out what the problem is, i have sent them the debug logs, sent them videos explaining the problem, each time they say its something else i have installed, such as a plugin, or a premium wp theme i paid for, when its not anything to do with those, its their software and they deny it all the time.

I'm a patient guy, but they guys have pushed me to the limit. I have a BIG site to build out 400+ pages, with a very complex membership structure due to the many services involved...

I've uninstalled the software, ive removed WP from my server, re-installed WP, then S2Member, with no themes except the ugly default one WP provides, no plugins, a raw install all the way...

the re-direct to a welcome page does NOT work. it keeps sending me to the members options page, time and time again even using the default wp theme.

2 months of my time has been wasted. I paid for the $189 unlimited site version... and im getting half effort replies like as if i paid 89 cents...

its unacceptable... they need to swallow their pride and listen to the customers...

Ive google searched high and low for solutions, lots of people are in the same boat as me with no help from Jason or anyone in the team... its appalling -- why put so much effort into a big project like this when you're not going to support it or live up to the terms they set; to give you 12 months of support -- its ridiculous...

they wont admit the problem is their end...

i suggest that if you want a good piece of software to use, is to google Sam's software: DLGuard --- i should of used this software instead, but I was looking for something that would accept stripe payment gateway.

Sam's support for DLGuard is AWESOME, that guys attention to detail is out of this world, he's always listening to the customers to make his software better... S2Member could learn a few things from Sam, that's for sure.

So I highly suggest to give this software a miss.
