Can a Word Press site be ran as a Membership Site?

by Tina M. Rideout 18 replies
Hi all,

Is there a way, plugin, or such, that would could convert a Word Press site into a Membership Site?

Or would you just need to attach another site to it?

Thanks

Tina

    Yes, Amember works with Wordpress. That's what we used at Nitty Gritty marketing.

      Is there a plugin on WP for Amember, or do I need to go to their site?

      I do have DLG, jsut never have tried to use it as a membership as of yet.

      Thanks

          If you want your sales page and Wordpress on the same domain, you can install Wordpress in a directory other than public_html, and use DL Guard to protect that directory. That leaves public_html open for your sales page.

            It won't be automatic... but it will be free. There is a plugin that doesn't cost you anything, called, "Members Only", that will add a feature to wordpress that will require all users to login to be able to view the blog. That is the bum method.

            The better and recommended method would be to install wordpress in a directory such as /memersonly or something like that, and then use software like DLGuard, (which will take care of the whole process... payment, login information, etc.)

            to protect the directory it is installed in.

                    I've heard some nice things about the script but haven't used it yet. You would install the script in the main domain and protect folders inside it. You could run whatever you wanted inside the folders.

                      I won't be able to use a script that needs to be placed in the root directory/main domain, as the site is already established, and adding the membership portion will be a new addition.

                      Thanks for all the info everyone.

                        aMember can definitely do this for you.
                        Check out my sig for a demo site, or PM me and I'll send you a live site using the integration.

                          Instant Membership Site Creator will make your Wordpress blog secure.

                          You will have to go into CPanel and install your Wordpress installation into
                          www.sitename.com/members or some such folder, then install the IMSC
                          software in on top of it.

                          Fantastico installs Wordpress into a new folder, not an existing one, so you
                          have to go in that order.

                          Been there, done that. Need help, just ask!

                            IMSC secures the folder. You can put whatever you want
                            in your Wordpress install.

                                With wordpress, it can do both. So you can have a teaser text site (magazine model) or a totally protected blog (walled garden), or both.

                                  Aha...I just saw your sig and the link to the WP protected install. Very cool, indeed. The only problem right now is the price tag. $179 for one domain is steep compared to the competition. Gotta think this one over.
