I need a members only plugin
I need build a members only site, I need a wordpress members only area, I hope only pages which I allowed will be viewed by guest, but other section of my site will only opened for members of my site, especially my social networking area which built by buddypress, I searched wordpress.org, I found there are a few choice.
Basically, the best choice is choose S2member or buddypress members only, I tested all of them, I found S2membe is great but it is too complex for me, I need understand these vars, shortcodes,learning how to work for buddypress from about x,00 options, that need a lot of time. Buddypress members only is a simple and quick solution, what I need to do is just setting “Opened Page URLs” in admin area, and all of other pages in my site will be protected, just like author said:
“Restricts Your Buddypress to logged in/registered members only. Only registered/logged in users can view your site, non members can only open home page/login/register/lost password pages. Logged in users have full access.”
This Buddypress membership plugin is easy to use and free of charge
So what let me feel very happy is I just used 1 minutes to understand how to use this great wordpress membership plugin, and then use another 2 minutes type in all wordpress posts url into the text area, click submit and all things works well! That’s great! This is what I need and it solved my problems of protect buddypress members page and buddypress activity page — perfect solution! WORDPRESS BEST PLUGIN team is not the only users feel so happy, just like another webmaster commented:
The comment below about it being a “spam plug-in” is completely bogus – it only scared us, and made us almost not try it at first.
Fact is, the plug-in works great, and does exactly what we wanted: show the home page and a few, select pages (registration, login, etc), and require registration & login for everythign else.
It was very easy to set up (we tried 2 others before, too cumbersome and did not do what we had in mind) and works like a charm from the start. You can see it in action on Scaffies.
Thanks to the author for an awesome piece of plug-in for the WordPress / BuddyPress community!
Yes, this is what I want too, thanks for the author offerd an awesome plugin to solve my problems so quickly, so easy, and no any cost.
