How does the new 'Protected Content' plugin compair to your Membership plugin?

Hello support,

I hope you're all doing well today...

Want to learn more about 'Protected Content'.
Read everything on the plugin's page but couldn't find any extensive documentation.

What does it have that "Membership" doesn't?

What does it lack that "Membership" has?

Can it be integrated into "Pro Sites"?

Any additional insights would be appreciated!

Thanks :slight_smile:

    Hey @sdinvestor2k, hope you're doing well today! :slight_smile:

    While I can't provide a full comparison of the two at the moment, to cover a few aspects:

    - It has an improved setup wizard to simplify the most advanced configurations (the setup wizard inside of Membership was very basic in terms of what it helped you to set up, and didn't cover near as much as the wizard inside Protected Content does)
    - It has complete BuddyPress and bbPress integration (Membership protected some aspects of BuddyPress, but had no bbPress integration)
    - Mailchimp API integration for automated mailing list management (previously, you had to use the Pings functionality that Membership has to have something like this)
    - In addition to the old gateways (PayPal Single, PayPal Standard,, manual payments), you can now allow users to use the Stripe gateway when signing up

    Can it be integrated into "Pro Sites"?

    What way did you have in mind? Care to elaborate on that? :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
