I recently needed to add member login/registration/access functionality for a client site and found the choice of available plugins was considerable.

I tried a couple but they either failed to have sufficient functionality or their documentation was not thorough enough. Then I tried WP-Members.

I needed to sign up for the Premium priority support as I believe that employing a members plugin of this complexity requires a great deal of time and knowledge to do it right.

Wow. This plugin hits the spot.

  • It's mature - the functionality you can employ with this plugin is huge, even extending out to things like MailChimp, PayPal and more.
  • It's adaptable/scalable - it sits well in WordPress; uses built-in WP functionality where appropriate;integrates well with my theme files;allows me to customise a little or a lot
  • It's very well documented - the RocketGeek.com website contains a vast array of articles on how to use/modify/extend the plugin. Many articles have really useful code snippets too.
  • It's very well supported - Chad provides a superb additional support service, by forum and personal support. It is worth every penny.

If you need a comprehensive membership plugin, I'd definitely consider WP-Members.

This Plugin is outstanding! Support is Outstanding!
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have been using WordPress for a few years now, and I have used many plugins. Some have been good, some have been bad, but this plugin is absolutely the best plugin I have found. The pro-version is worth the money. The support is fast and efficient. Does everything I wanted it to, and if you know a little php, the options are limitless. If you don't know php, the options are still almost limitless. If you don't have the pro-version, you should get it. I requested support for a simple shortcode and received a perfect answer in a very short amount of time.

Solid customizeable plugin, responsive support
By ,

The plugin works as advertised, is well coded and we've been able to customize the registration to fully integrate with a clients' marketing automation system.

I needed to upgrade the plugin after a year of updates, during which the plugin has performed without fail. A one-line of code solution was provided within the hour to accommodate the full functioning of the plugin update. The support fee is excellent value for the price. Thanks Chad!

Send new password to a new database after password change/reset
By , for WP 4.3

Thank you for the excellent plugin!

I have two scripts working together, I need to keep user information synchronized. I have no issues for the username. For the password, I have tried 2 hooks, 'password_reset' and 'check_passwords', but it is not accomplishing:

add_action( 'password_reset', 'change_password_in_other_script', 10, 2 );
add_action( 'check_passwords', 'change_password_in_other_script', 10, 2 );
function change_password_in_other_script( $user, $new_pass ) {

	global $addShareDB;
	$mydb = new wpdb( $addShareDB['dbuser'], $addShareDB['dbpass'], $addShareDB['dbname'], $addShareDB['dbhost'] );

	$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    $current_username = $current_user->user_login;

	$table           = 'enk_account_users';
	$new_password    = md5( $_POST[ 'pwd' ] );
	$query = "UPDATE " . $table . " SET password = '" . $new_password . "' WHERE username = '" . $current_username . "'";
	$mydb->get_results( $query );

Is there any other hook in wp members or wordpress I can use? Or how can I solve this?

Thank you!!!!

Five stars but....
By , for WP 4.2.4

I was really happy with the plugin when i set up a members only area. I don't know why though it has stopped blocking pages. It is set up properly, i even reinstalled the plugin. Pages are blocked but i can access them from any computer without being a registered user. I still give 5 stars but i hope this resolves. dont have the funds to pay for the pro version.

Great Plugin

Does what it says. Super simpler. Easy to customize. Does page restrict, user register on the front end, and add custom field to user register (threefold good plugin)

3.0 Update is a MESS
By , for WP 4.0

The 3.0 Update completely kills our entire site. Even after trying to test it, we can't get it work. Upgrade paths should be much easier than this.

Great support!

I am truly impressed by the support author of this plugin provides to everyone. I am a not paying customer. I have reported an issue and within 3 hours there has been a release with solution. All support forum threads that were in unresolved state became resolved as well. Everything works like a clockwork.
