Powerful Role Manager
The heart of the Members plugin is its role manager, which allows you to create, edit, or delete roles and their capabilities. It works with the core WordPress and any plugin’s roles/caps.
And, it does it all in a nice and uniform interface that blends right into the WordPress admin.
Multiple Roles Per User
Out of the box, the WordPress admin only allows you to set one role per user. Members allows you to easily manage multiple roles per user.
This level of detail saves you from creating dozens of additional roles in more complex setups, such as creating a forum moderator who can publish products in your online shop while having another user with the same access but also post-publishing permission.
Select from a number of add-on plugins to enhance your membership site. All add-ons are available with the purchase of the Members Pro package.

What’s included with Purchase?
The Members Pro package includes access to all premium Members add-on plugins and support for 1 year. If you go with the All-Access Package option, you’ll also get access to the Exhale theme and all its skins.
How many sites per license?
Members and its add-ons are licensed under the GNU GPL, version 2+. This means you can use them and get support on as many sites as you want. I do encourage developers working with clients to purchase a membership for the client.
What’s Your Support Policy?
Officially, my available hours are Mon-Fri from 8-4 p.m. (Central time zone). However, I’m often available outside of that schedule, including weekends. I personally review and/or answer all support questions within 24 hours. Support includes live chat via our Slack group, so you’ll often have help within minutes during official hours.
Does Your Plugin Support Gutenberg?
Yes. Members and all its add-ons work fine with the WordPress block editor (Gutenberg) as well as the classic editor.
I’m also working on a new add-on plugin specifically for block-specific permissions.
Help Fund Members 3.0
Aside from a handful of support memberships and the occasional donation, the Members plugin makes little money. Yet, it is easily the largest and most complex project that I maintain. It currently has 100,000+ active installs and 1.5+ million downloads.
Major updates take months of development. Even minor updates can take days or weeks, depending what’s being updated.
I’d love to get version 3.0 released before the end of 2019. However, that means stepping away from client work, which I cannot do unless I have enough financial wiggle room to not worry about taking on outside work for a few months. The reality is that I have to put food on the table and pay my utility bills first.
How To Donate
You can also directly donate via PayPal if you prefer to not have a membership.
