WP-Members 2.2 released

I have completed the WP-Members 2.2 upgrade and released it via WordPress SVN. You can download a copy of it from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-members/.

Alternatively, you can get it directly from the WP admin panel by selecting “Add New” from the plugin menu and entering the search term WP-Members.

If you are an existing user of the plugin, you can upgrade via the admin panel as well.  However, if you have done any customization to the code of the plugin, you should probably test the upgrade in a testing environment (actually, this is a good habit to be in for any plugin).  If your customizations revolve around changing which registration fields are required or whether posts are blocked/unblocked by default, you should have no problem with the upgrade – you’ll just need to make sure that you have updated your settings appropriately.

As discussed here, this version better enables users to customize their installation and use of the WP-Members plugin.

    I have installed this great plugin and am currently using it on my blog posts. I am currently working on a members-only video library. How can I use your plugin to restrict entrance to the library. I want visitors to have to sign up first before gaining access.

    Thank you. I appreciate your help. Thank you, too, for generously providing this plugin.

      Hi Pamela, Thanks for the comments.

      WP-Members does not have category-based restriction (*yet*). If you are just restricting content to something that would be in a single category (like a video library), I would suggest setting the plugin to NOT block posts by default and then block the posts in the video library individually (setting a custom field block on the posts). Alternatively, if you post a lot of videos but not of other content, I would do the opposite and just unblock the non-video content.

      Hope that helps!
