First I love the plugins, compatibility and features. Its overwhelming how much you have to offer. I have a few technical questions related to specific functions for the multi-site plugin.
What is the recommended “Registration Settings” for your network registration if you ONLY want registed/paying users to access the wordpress dashboard ie the new website they created. We are using the “Pay-to-blog” feature included along with domain mapping.
I noticed when you clicked “User accounts may be registered” this allows for a blog to be registered under the domain without paying. Via the page that says Gimme my free website.
When you have “Logged in users may register new sites” This forces them to login however we would want them to sign-up via the subscription
Is there any hooks/shortcodes/URLs that can supplement the current sign-up page? Lets say we want to use a table pricing display. Can I hook subscription level 1 into the button and subscription level 2 into the second table etc etc. Similar to the popup for wpmudev if you are not logged in as a member.
Lastly is it possible to add a “Setup-fee” or “one-time” charge to the subscription form? I understand that if you make the price 50/mo it will only display 50 at checkout. However lets say we wanted to do 100/signup fee and 50/mo recurring. Is this possible? Or make a 1 time charge that includes first month's payment then is billed recurring at xx/mo. rate.
Basically I’m looking for the most efficient way to direct a potential customer through these flow of actions. Customer view’s pricing table ---> Customer signs up via checkout ? Customer Makes payment (Setup fee $50 includes first month, then billed $25/mo at next months rate) ---> Customer registers a username/pw along with a temp URL for their website ---> Customers account is activated or pending review. After review, account is activated and mapped either with subdomain or actual domain.
