WordPress — Two Different Member Areas?

  • # September 6, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Not sure how well I can explain this…please be patient with me!

    I’m building a website for a Taekwondo school, and the client would like to have two different member areas — one ‘general’ member area (basically just a secondary post menu) where all enrolled families can access demo videos, and a more restricted area where members of an elite class can access a video blog and other content.

    I’ve used is_user_logged_in in other sites to build a content menu that only shows up to logged in visitors — but I can’t figure out how to have two different classes of log ins.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can give users roles in WordPress, perhaps you can also give them authorization to view certain pages when they have a certain role?

    If the default roles aren’t adequate to accomplish what you want there are a multitude of role related plug ins.

    I’ve used Role-Scoper to assign restrictions and roles to specific pages, posts and categories.
