Hi
MarionBlack say right.
Link your site to wordpress dashboard profile. You have 2 admin user but only your username link to dashboard wordpress. WA user admin not link but automatic have. Remmber dont delete admin user from WA for backup.
If all finished try open website use your username you create. In future use it dont use from WA. If you want do easy use plugin JETPACK, it automatic .
Good luck

note. Can change password admin from WA link but i not suggest.

Hello Abie,

I do respect your choice. You know better of course without any doubt. I am no one to oppose you. My purpose is not that.

In my personal point of view it is not a good option to go with because logically thinking it is like you are putting a lock on your site to not welcome the consumers.

Like this if let's say without locking you rank on top line of 1st page but by putting a lock, you will end up ranking may be somewhere on the 10th page.

Example:

No locking = 1000 views per month More visitors = better ranking
Locking = 500 viewers or visitors / month

Myself, personally if I visit a website which is giving me absolutely no information and force me to sign up, I won't do that. I would simply move on to search for other websites.

This was just my point of view!

You don't have to accept it or agree to it.

All the best!

Have a great weekend,

Meena

Hey Meena, thanks for you feedback really appreciated. It would be a subdomain of the main website which requires registration to view and engage in discussions.

An example would be perhaps instagram and facebook with the exception of some business pages. When logged out, you are unable view or engage.

Well yes that's what's life about. Raising the bar setting yourself up for more challenges overcome them with adequate and proper research, learning and development.

If we get stuck to what we know we would never improve. We need embrace learning.

What do you think Yvonne? Is that something you would want?

Looking forward to your feedback. Much obliged.

Yeah I agree, I would like something like that. Life would be boring Abie, I’m so glad you have an inquisitive mind and you get us all thinking about what we can do next.

Go to Plugins > Add New and search for "member" or "membership" there are a few free plugins to choose from. Look for one that has lots of active installations, good reviews, and has been updated recently.

Thanks Marion, I'd look. But I need something robust i.e. unhackable. Thanks for your feedback. Well appreciated.

Is that even a word ?

Just about every free plugin has a premium upgrade. Find the most suitable free plugin first and then, if you're happy with its functions, upgrade to the premium version.
