Upgraded Profiles

We are currently developing a BuddyPress site that is a directory of industry-specific companies offering an array of services. Joining the site is free and you can fill in a general amount of information for your profile. We'll call this the FREE profile.

What we are looking to do is offer a paid FEATURED profile that offers more fields and highlights the profile, either with a style/flag that says "featured" and/or shows the profiles at the top of the directory list. Of course, these additional features would not be available to the FREE users!

Looking for a suggestion on how to best implement this within our site. I had my eye on the Membership plugin here, but I'm not sure if it will work for what we're looking for?

Thanks in advance!

    Hello there!

    Welcome to the Community!

    Membership only protects Buddypress Pages and components, so I don't think it would be possible to use it to directly protect the profiles.

    Unless....you decided to create a second profile group in Buddypress and protect it with a URL group...but that might get messy. unless you use a profile plugin like the BP resume one, but that's just theory

    Did some looking around and can't find any way to create a Feature member or profile....

    Maybe someone else will have an idea :slight_smile:
