Membership versus Protected Content

You have two plugins that are very similar in functionality, Membership and Protected Content.

Which one is better, what do you recommend, Membership or Protected Content?

Also, are both of them compatible with the Affiliates plugin?

    Hello @Richard

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    Both plugins are designed to do pretty much the same thing, but they both do it differently. Protected content is very new and as such new features will be added in future & it is very actively developed.

    PC is a lot more easier to setup & configure, whereas membership can be very complicated. Either way tho, if you are familiar with membership, then use membership plugin, but it's not recommended to use both at the same time as conflicts can occur if you try to protect the same content as such.

    Only membership is compatible with affiliates plugin yet.

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have.
