Membership - assign members to an existing WP Role

Hi folks!

I am looking for a plugin that will charge a subscription for membership and can assign a particular existing role to different member levels. I thought I saw in an old forum post that Membership2 could do that - but in testing it all I can find it setting Capabilities - not Roles. I have other plugins that test for the user role - not just capabilities.

Is there any way it can be rigged to do this or should I look at a different plugin for this? Any suggestions?

    Hi Michelle,

    Welcome to the WPMU Dev community and thank you for your question.

    You can achieve this using Membership 2 Pro plugin.

    Just activate the " Member Capabilities" add-on but make sure in the details section of the add-on the option "Advanced Capability protection" is disabled then you will get user roles settings in Protection Rules settings instead of Capabilities as shown in the attached screenshots.

    Please advise if you have more questions.

    Best Regards,
