I'm working with someone who wants to add a Private Members area to their WordPress site. They do personal coaching, and sometimes, they work in Groups.

They want the ar

I am getting a "404' ERRor when i clicked on the latter link you wrote.

Gary this was a very good question, but I am not quite there yet. I will for sure keep this information for future use...thanks.

Great question! I'm not there myself yet but it's good to know.

Gary - I am already working on something similar.

Depending on the depth your clients is interested in, you may be able to password protect blogs and posts without having to install another plugin. You do this by creating or editing a post / page. On the right side of the dashboard screen, you'll see:

Publish
Visibility Public Edit

When you click on Edit, you can change it to password protected and assign a password.

However, if you are considering a plugin, there are free membership plugins that should serve your purpose. Maybe one of these will work:

Paid Memberships Pro
Simple Membership
MemberFindMe Membership, Event & Directory System

If you are unhappy with these, just do a quick search from dashboard>plugins>add new, and type "membership" in the search bar.

Also - a quick suggestion - your client may need a forum and bbpress is great (but you are more educated on this than me).

Hope this helps and God Bless!

Ok, thanks Cathy. It's nice that there are many options out there.

This one seems popular

I would use the Optimize Press theme for this. You can create membership portals using this theme, and a whole lot of other things.

https://www.optimizepress.com/ that's the direct link to their site.

Thanks leo, I'll take a look...

Gary, I would recommend a membership site.
MemberMouse offers a great easy to use platform.
TRY IT FREE: 14-Day Free Trial.

I would like to have a little membership section on my website too which will be login based

There are many ways to accomplish this. A nice (and free solution) is to use a plugin called S2 Member. It essentially allows you to set up levels of membership (free and paid) and lock down content based on member level.

The free version integrates with PayPal, but to integrate with PayPal Pro or other merchant services requires the paid version of the plugin.

If you go paid, I'd recommend using Wish List member.

Hope that helps

Ok, thanks, I will look into S2 Member.
