I want clarity on how Membership and Protected Content are meant to fit

I am wondering How Membership plugin and Protected Content fit together. They seem to overlap. Also in the information on Membership is reference to Membership and Membership Pro are they the same thing ?

    Hi there @peter,

    Hope you’re well today and thanks for your question! :slight_smile:

    Protected content is a all new completely separate membership type plugin, you’d use either Protected content or Membership, but not both on the same site.

    Membership works around access levels which allows you to stack them, whereas Protected content works on the basis of protecting content and then using that protected content in subscriptions which automatically blocks it from visitors.

    Also in the information on Membership is reference to Membership and Membership Pro are they the same thing ?

    This would be because we have a free version of Membership on WordPress.org here https://wordpress.org/plugins/membership/

    Thanks!

    Kind Regards

    Jack.
