WordPress Membership Plugin – that works with WPMU & BuddyPress too!

As plugin release number 99 on WPMU DEV, we’ve got rather a big one for you… one that might just transform your site, business and life (it has for us!) and it’s called, simply, Membership.

Since Membership 2 was launched we’ve added sooo much new stuff. Head over to the project page to check out all the new features! Check out Membership 2

Put simply, this plugin allows you to turn any WordPress, WPMU, MultiSite or BuddyPress installation into a paid membership site… with a heap of flexibility.

So if you want to start your own GigaOm Pro, Problogger.com,PSD Tuts or even WPMU DEV style site.. this plugin is all you need :)

You can use Membership to create…

  • A WordPress membership site, offering resources, forums, downloads, videos, support and more… with multiple different levels of membership and complete customizations
  • Multiple membership sites on a WPMU / WordPress MultiSite install – so any user of your site can have their own membership site, combine with Supporter to make this a feature they pay for – or you could run dozens of membership sites yourself
  • A BuddyPress membership site, where different groups and blogs are only visible to members, so members can join for free and then upgrade to key groups and forums

How does it work… well, it’s really easy.

Simply follow the instructions in the installation and configuration guide

You’ll then be able to create Membership ‘Levels’ which can access different types of content, ranging from ‘free’ (i.e users just visiting the site) to any number of paid levels.

You can control access to:

  • Downloads
  • Categories
  • Pages
  • Posts
  • Comments
  • ‘More’ tags
  • Galleries
  • BuddyPress groups
  • BuddyPress blogs
  • And *any content or functionality* (like forums!), via multiple different shortcodes

Membership create new levels

And you can also create multiple different levels of subscriptions, for example you can decide to:

  • Offer free memberships that turn into paid subscriptions after x days
  • Finite or indefinite subscriptions
  • Serial renewing subscriptions
  • Subscriptions that renew every 5, 10, 30, 90 etc. days
  • And plenty more…

And it doesn’t stop there!

We’ll be adding new features to this plugin based on members requests, new payment gateways and general new good stuff all the time… so make sure you are a WPMU DEV member today, plugins like this will mean you don’t regret it.
