Rezensionen

The best free Membership plugin

I would give it 5 but it lacks some pretty fundamental features including:
No coupon option
No ability to notify users when there membership is expiring.
No recurring stripe payment method

Unfortunately, unless they incorporate this with WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart (it has Coupon options) and add a email notification system. And lastly, a recurring stripe payment method. Then I can’t recommend it for people who want to maximise their potential in creating a membership site. If these features are crucial to you, go memberpress.

If these features are ever added without a doubt this would be the best membership plugin. However, if you look through forums you can see my critiques were mentioned by others years ago and despite ‚looking into them‘ no such changes.

Despite this, it is a good plugin.

Couldn’t access my restricted content at all

I really wanted to get this working for me. The features and simplicity of set up are great. However I was never able to resolve a basic problem – that no member was able to view restricted content. After two weeks or so of back and forth, the final conclusion from the developer was that my site was cached and I should try another plugin. I did not have a cache installed and had diligently cleared my history, disabled all plugins and tried changing my theme even ran in different browsers in incognito mode. So despite its good functionality it is useless to me since content restriction control doesn’t work for me.

The support seems to be of two levels, the first, someone who refers you to a specific document that mostly solves one’s issue if followed to the letter. It can be frustrating when one has already followed the documentation meticulously, but eventually the issue is escalated but I think, for me at least, only to the point where my problem was reproduced and a generic reply issued. My site is not cached and as recommended I tried another plugin – so far Membership 2 plugin works just fine for me. Pity I wasted so much time on this plugin, though I still prefer its setup workflow and operation, the inability to actually use it for logged in members rendered it useless for me.

Perfect for me needs, simple to setup and use

Very happy with this plugin. It does exactly what they say it does.

Very easy to setup and use, quick tools to help and some great add-ons both free and paid.

Documentation is easy to follow, (Feedback) but for my sore eyes a better readable font would be good on the documentation pages.
