It's more a question of making the two plugins work together.... I thought that as they both came from WPMU Dev, it shouldn't be a problem. I hope it's just something I'm missing.
The requirement is basically as follows:
Someone pays for membership. There are 3 levels, but they basically get access to the same stuff.
Paid membership allows them access to members only information on the site.
It also allows them to update / maintain their own extended user profile - visible to other members only.
It also entitles them to a free public listing (implemented through CustomPress & Directory)
At some point in the future, we would be looking to extend these privileges to allowing members to create their own website through pro-sites.
By default, members are created as subscribers, with no apparent way to automatically extend their capabilities.
The members that are there at the moment have been set up manually (imported from a previous non-wp site), to allow them the access that they require
Could you please let me know how I can achieve what I am trying to do here, especially as I have another very similar site in the process of being set up
