Is it possible to run member sites on WA?
If so which theme or plugin would you recommend?

I did search but there were only a couple of results from years back.

Many thanks for your advice

Thanks idoitbigtime :). I'll take a look.

I see from your profile that you have 10 years online experience, do you manage member areas on your sites hosted in WA?

What do you mean by a member site? Could you clarify a little?

Hi Eric
Have a members area attached to my wordpress website.
Hope that clarifies.
Thanks

I'm not really following lol. Are you saying you have a Wordpress site not on WA that uses a plugin where it shows a members area and you're wanting to find a similar plugin for a site here on WA?

Not at all Eric.

My site is hosted here at WA. I want to create a members area & looking for advice on how to do that.

Hopefully that's clearer. :)

ok.. im sorry for being confused lol.

I guess I got lost somewhere because at first you said you have a members area attached to your site, like past tense as in it's already there, but then you're saying you'd like to have one and aren't sure quite how to do it. lol.

And when you say a members area, you're looking to have a widget that lists the subscribed members of your website I'm guessing?

lol, thanks for your interest :)
It's easy to get confused, you're not the only one.

Not just list subscribed members.
Where they can log in and have access to things according to their subscription.

So I'm looking for answers to which plugin or theme would be best & are we able to use them within our WA hosting.

I'm sorry I haven't been much help. A members area where they can login and access things direct from your site, huh. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of subscriptions are you selling? To have basically a back office users can login to direct from your site sounds like a pretty big task. Have you messaged Kyle to ask him for help on this?

Hi Eric
I have several ideas but haven't decided on what to start with. I'm in the research phase hence these questions.

I haven't approached Kyle or Carson yet. I'm hoping to connect with WA members who are doing what I'm hoping to with having a member area.

I'd get right to the source and ask Kyle. He's the man. And he definitely has a better working knowledge than anyone else here with regards to what works and what won' in the WA platform lol.

Just make sure you're clear in what it is you want and define what you mean by a members area and having members logging in and all those juicy details :)

Good luck!
