Well, it is finally here – kind of. Here is the 1st beta release of my WordPress membership plugin. This plugin is designed for setting up a membership-based site where you are only allowing logged in site members to access posts and feeds. It handles site members aside from the WordPress users and utilizes additional fields for contact info (address, email, phone, etc.).
There is an admin panel for this plugin where you can manage the site members – add new members, search members, view the entire list, sort by various criteria.
Also, the required database tables self install upon plugin activation.
Note that this could be a buggy release as it is the 1st publicly released beta version. Also, it does require making some changes to core WordPress files (at least for now), so you’ll need to backup your site and database (if you don’t, and something goes awry, well, that’s your problem).
