WP-Members™ is a free membership management framework for WordPress® that restricts content to registered users.
I am a paying customer of Rocket Geek. Initially I enjoyed the plugin until dozens of users on my site were locked out, had lots of login issues. Chad fixed some of them. The support is good but the plugin is definitely below average, I recommend going with Paid Membersips Pro (a free plugin) which works very smoothly. I'm glad I switched.
This plugin have a bug, when lock content this show content in tags, all content is visible in tag sections....
This is the easiest membership plugin to use with all the functions needed to run a basic membership site.
I have tried so many plugins for user front-end registration but no plugin meet my requirements.
But this plugin have great functionality and get my full requirements.
Thanks a lot to developers.
Once you try to get more information about tweaking the plugin, you realize that you have to be a member 59$, otherwise, you loose much time setting it up to realize that the default shortcodes are not really useable. you need more information... you need to be a member.. hum...
Not only does this plugin have everything I need membership-wise, if it doesn't out-of-the-box, it's highly customizable via the author's documentation and even more with their premium content / extensions.
Did I mention the author (Chad) takes support seriously? Quick and thorough responses.
I've been using WP-Members for more than 4 months now and I more than pleased with it. Chad is doing an amazing job maintaining and updating. Also the support he provides is really helpful.
The plugin is free and works as described but if you head over to the plugin website rocketgeek.com/ you will find there examples, extensions and enough documentation to help you achieve what you're working on.
I've been using this plugin for 3 months now. It's been ROCK SOLID! I did a lot of research for alternatives before I decided to use this plugin. I also checked out the developers website. It's full of great info! I needed some assistance with integration into a WordPress website that also utilized the User Meta Pro plugin, so I purchased the Priority Support. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND dishing out the dough for priority support. Besides, it made me look like a superstar to my client. I submitted a support ticket that was both detailed and lengthy. The support I received was speedy and detailed! Chad provided me with all of the code snippets necessary for seamless integration and where to place the code snippets within my website. I never had to provide a login to the website, just details on what I wanted to do. I recommend this plugin.
Well, created a page, protected it. Good. So far so good. Now, I added there posts links and.. the page itself loads, the posts links show "This content is restricted to site members. If you are an existing user, please log ..." but the page LOADS, shows the name of the links, the categories of the links. Something is very wrong here. Deleting plugin. A pity because this is what I was looking for.
best and most compatible of members plugs i've found so far...used it on 3 sites and counting.
well supported and updated and merges well with the most popular themes.
it also includes custom fields and can send 'password in an email' which gives de facto verification [would be nice though to mark user as pending until first login or something similar to manage junk registrations - wishlist!]
the addons are worth the fee to be sure that these key features are compatible
in particular 'email as username' and 'logged in menus'
members and login is a complicated game but this plug has the cleanest approach
other members plugs have some better features but don't play nice with the key plugs we all use...so all in all this is the guy for now!
