I need a little advice.
I started building a network a few months ago. It's basically a mini-version of etsy but for painters.
I tested out membership and supporter and found that I wasn't a big fan of supporter as it didn't offer enough levels and was a bit clunky. So I opted to go with Membership with a combination of Marketpress (for the artist gallery), Blog Templates, Adminimize, and Custom Themes to do what I needed.
Now I'm finding that it's really difficult to manage the members and the sites, as it's basically two separate systems. A good part of the process is manual and a bit time consuming.
The client already has 500 existing members that are fully paid for a year (with different expirations). I had to make 3 extra private subscription levels with no cost associated with them. Then when the current payment they have is expired, an admin has to go in and change the level. However .... it's a bit of mess now and I've only inputted 10 members.
With Pro-Sites, when the customers picks a level, can it auto-assign a blog template?
Are there admin restriction options, like adminimize built into it?
Can I input members manually to the system, we have about 500 that will need to be done?
The current members, and blogs, will they be migrated?
Just a few of my questions.
