Membership software that allows members to choose what categories they want access too

  • # July 15, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    Hi, I am creating a membership site and I would like to be able to offer members the opportunity to choose what categories they want access too. Basically I have a site that has varies series’ teaching various subjects within a niche. Originally I was just going to have one membership level and just give paying members access to the whole site but the more I am creating the more I am realising that in order for the membership to be affordable I need to reduce the amount of content I am giving away.

    For the niche I am in, very few people will need more than one or two subjects of the site so I would like to make three membership levels, bronze being access to one subject, silver being 3 subjects and gold being the whole site.

    Trouble is I cant find any membership solutions (I run WordPress) that members can pick and choose what they have access to. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what plugin to run?

    Thanks for any help in advance

    A few years ago I created an extranet for a professional association that was built using wordpress along with aMemberPro (

    It’s been a long time since I’ve given it any thought, but I believe it was a pretty straight forward system to setup, and that it’s capable of doing what you need – might be worth checking out.

    I had so many dramas with the overcomplicated membership plugins I almost started developing my own, but eventually went with Gravity Forms and its membership and paypal add-ons. Team that up with something like Justin Tadlock’s Members plugin and you might find something easier and better coded.
