I have a new site I want to build and would like to use my WPMU tools to do it.
However I'd like to ask opinions and advice to see if this can be done, and if so - how to get started with it.
On this site, there would be two basic types of content.
One is specific content where the user pays for access to it and that access never expires.
The other content would be controlled by subscriptions and when the subscription expires, so does the access.
However there is actually a bit of overlap here with what we want to offer in the subscriptions.
There would be two types of subscriptions:
One is a gold level - which would give full access to all the content on the site (including the first type listed above), but in this case the access to the first content would expire when the subscription ends.
The other is a silver level - which would give the subscriber access to all the content on the site EXCEPT for the first type.
For simplicity - think of it as a web book and "other" content.
Someone who is NOT a subscriber could buy the web book at a higher price and would always have access to it.
However the gold level subscriber could get access to the same web book (plus other site content) as long as they had an active subscription.
The silver subscription could access the other site content, but not the web book - and again only for as long as their subscription is active.
Does this sound like something that I can control with the Membership plugin?
I really want to avoid having to duplicate the web books to accomodate both the outright purchasers of it and those who have access to it via subscription.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice!
