I have copied and printed the Detail File and the Usage File. Any ideas about how to get to the point where I am building my site ASAP would be appreciated.

    Hi @Frank,

    You are welcome to the WPMU Dev community.

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    I think you have written the question description in topic title and therefore it got truncated. Can you just reply on this thread with whole question description?

    Kind Regards,

    Hi,

    Thanks. I just learned that I had to be signed in to "reply to a thread". Now I know how to reply to a thread.

    What I would like to do is this:

    (1) Have clients go to my webpage to be greeted by a log-in portal (can this page be a wiki page?). At this point I will likely use WP-Client for the log-in unless you have a different suggestion.

    (2) I would like to then go straight to the Wiki Plug-in I purchased from your site.

    I have copied and printed (a) the Detail file, and (b) the Download file. I just need to get past this initial roadblock.

    Thanks,

    Frank

    @Frank:

    (1) Have clients go to my webpage to be greeted by a log-in portal

    So you want to block access to the wikis until a visitor logs in? Am I understanding that correctly?

    (2) I would like to then go straight to the Wiki Plug-in I purchased from your site.

    Are you saying that when you yourself log in, you want to be able to land on the Wiki "manager" page without being sent elsewhere in your backend?

    Apologies, again, for more questions. I just want to make sure I'm attempting to address your specific concerns and not answering questions that you're not actually asking.

    Hi Faydra,

    You are very kind to help.

    (1) Yes, I want to block access to the Wiki until my clients log-in. Some clients will have rights to modify but most will just be able to view and download docs I place there for them.

    (2) For the second part I am referring to the client experience. I want the client to see first the log-in portal and then when they log in to see the wiki. A very sparton experience.

    Thanks,

    Frank

    @Frank:

    This may seem convoluted, but this is what I have set up on one of my sites.

    I use a plugin called Register IP: http://wordpress.org/plugins/register-ip/ It hasn't been updated since 2010, but it works flawlessly. I assume that's because it just keeps a log of IP addresses when people register on the site.

    I set up another plugin called Members: http://wordpress.org/plugins/members/ This plugin allowed me to create two, new user roles. One is Pending and the other is MemberAuthor. A Pending account has one permission: reading. The MemberAuthor account only has the reading permission, too, but it allows them access to some pages that I have set up just for member authors of my site.

    In Settings, I've checked off that anyone can register, and I set my default registering role as Pending. This is so I can pinpoint them easily from Subscribers I've already allowed through.

    When someone registers, they get filtered through and stuck in a holding pattern by another plugin called New User Approve: http://wordpress.org/plugins/new-user-approve/.

    Once I see them on the New User Approve screen, I can then accept them or deny them. I make my decision by running their IP, then their username and then their email address through http://stopforumspam.com/.

    If they're OK, they I click Accept on the New User Approve screen and then I head over to the Users screen and move then from Pending to whichever level they're allowed to be in.

    Exhale. :o)

    Then when they login, I use Login Redirect: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/login-redirect/ to put them on the page where I want them to be.

    I know that's a lot, but it's the solution I use on my main site, and it works well.

    One another site, where the only person I want to be able to access the content is me, I use the Private Only http://wordpress.org/plugins/private-only/ plugin, which restricts my site until I put in my username and password.

    When you activate Private Only, it's going to also install another part of the plugin called Private Only, Disable Feed, which you can activate to also keep your feed private.

    I hope you can use some or all of this. If not, let me know, and I'll be happy to search for a better solution for you.

    Hi @Frank,

    Thank you for your detailed reply.

    (1) Yes, I want to block access to the Wiki until my clients log-in.

    You can use our membership plugin or free version of membership plugin with limited functionality to archive this.

    Some clients will have rights to modify but most will just be able to view and download docs I place there for them.

    You can grant edit wiki privileges to the specific users having specific roles from the path Admin -> Wikis -> Wiki Settings

    (2) For the second part I am referring to the client experience. I want the client to see first the log-in portal and then when they log in to see the wiki. A very sparton experience.

    Using membership plugin you can display login form to non logged in users and after login they will access the wiki page.

    Best Regards,
    Vinod Dalvi
