WordPress Client Area

  • # February 7, 2013 at 11:29 am

    Hi all..

    I run a web based holiday company, and provide a concierge service, to arrange all the extra little details for my clients..

    What would be really useful is to have an area clients can log in, and see a page, unique to them, with their travel arrangements detailed in full.

    If anyone knows of a decent plugin that can do this relatively “out of the box”, it would be great.

    Many thanks for any suggestions.

    I’ve done something myself recently and couldn’t find anything that good. I ended up building a simple one myself. Basically made a custom post type (just like pages) and each page is the username of a client. Then do some simple php to make sure the logged in username matches the page title.

    You can also user peters login redirect to redirect users straight to their relevant page.

    Of course, this only works with a single page for each client the way I have done it, but could easily be modified.

    You could also do this sort of thing with plugins like [Buddypress](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress/ “Buddypress”) or [Groups](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/groups/ “Groups”).

    You now also have the [customer area](http://wordpress.org/plugins/customer-area/ “Customer Area / Client Area plugin for WordPress”) plugin provided your travel arrangments are either a page or a file. You’ll get it up and running in 10 minutes.
