I have a WPMU network with several thousand blogs and several thousand users and want to have one of my blogs act as a support site. I need to protect some intellectual property from the general public, so my hope is to have the general Web viewing public able to visit the blog, but have some content protected inside of shortcodes.
My testing of the membership plugin seems to work perfectly: configuring the stranger level, member level, shortcodes, rules, default subscriptions, etc... except it appears that I can't have a person added to a "logged in member" level unless they are actually a member of that specific blog. I would prefer to only test if they are logged into the WordPress instance, not set as a member of the support blog. Is that possible?
