Members

Omschrijving

Members is a plugin that extends your control over your blog. It’s a user, role, and capability editor plugin that was created to make WordPress a more powerful CMS.

It puts you in control over permissions on your site by providing a user interface (UI) for WordPress’ powerful role and cap system, which is traditionally only available to developers who know how to code this by hand.

Plugin Features

  • Role Editor: Allows you to edit, create, and delete roles as well as capabilities for these roles.
  • Multiple User Roles: Give one, two, or even more roles to any user.
  • Explicitly Deny Capabilities: Deny specific caps to specific user roles.
  • Clone Roles: Build a new role by cloning an existing role.
  • Content Permissions: Gives you control over which users (by role) have access to post content.
  • Shortcodes: Shortcodes to control who has access to content.
  • Widgets: A login form widget and users widget to show in your theme’s sidebars.
  • Private Site: You can make your site and its feed completely private if you want.
  • Plugin Integration: Members is highly recommended by other WordPress developers. Many existing plugins integrate their custom roles and caps directly into it.

Like this plugin?

The Members plugin is a massive project with 1,000s of lines of code to maintain. A major update can take weeks or months of work. I don’t make any money directly from this plugin while other, similar plugins charge substantial fees to even download them or get updates. Please consider helping the cause by:

Why was this plugin created?

I wasn’t satisfied with the current user, role, and permissions plugins available. Yes, some of them are good, but nothing fit what I had in mind perfectly. Some offered few features. Some worked completely outside of the WordPress APIs. Others lacked the GPL license.

So, I just built something I actually enjoyed using.

How do I use it?

Most things should be fairly straightforward, but I’ve included an in-depth guide in the plugin download. It’s a file called readme.md in the plugin folder.

You can also view the readme online.

Minimum PHP requirements.

Since version 2.0.0 of Members, PHP 5.3.0+ is required to use the plugin. The plugin will not allow itself to be activated and will output an error message if an earlier version of PHP is detected.

I can’t access the “Role Manager” features.

When the plugin is first activated, it runs a script that sets specific capabilities to the “Administrator” role on your site that grants you access to this feature. So, you must be logged in with the administrator account to access the role manager.

If, for some reason, you do have the administrator role and the role manager is still inaccessible to you, deactivate the plugin. Then, reactivate it.

Help! I’ve locked myself out of my site!

Please read the documentation for the plugin before actually using it, especially a plugin that controls permissions for your site. I cannot stress this enough. This is a powerful plugin that allows you to make direct changes to roles and capabilities in the database.

You’ll need to stop by my support forums to see if we can get your site fixed if you managed to lock yourself out. I know that this can be a bit can be a bit scary, but it’s not that tough to fix with a little custom code.

Super easy to use & understand

I find this plugin so easy to use and understand compared to similar plugins. Thanks so much!! I will be using this over all others on my client’s websites from now on.

Grateful to Justin for this plugin

Hi Justin,
Thank you so much for creating this plugin and taking the time to write a clear documentation so that I can understand the background of this plugin, how it works, and how to properly use it. Once I read and understood the documentation, the settings were fairly easy to configure.

While there are other plugins to import users data into WP, I think it will be a nice feature to have if this plugin can also import users (from CSV) so that the process is seamless.

Keep up the great work!!!

Great Plugin

Thanks for your plugin it’s all most what i’m looking for since weeks!!
I have just a question : can i limit access for a post content to a specific user not a role?

Thanks in advance for your answer 🙂
