Members – Membership & User Role Editor Plugin


Members is a roles and capabilities based WordPress membership plugin. It gives your users the ultimate member experience by giving you powerful tools to add roles and capabilities and assign them to your users.

Members allows you to set permissions to restrict content on your site by providing a simple user interface (UI) for WordPress’ powerful roles and capabilities system, which has traditionally only been available to developers who know how to code this by hand.

Caratteristiche del plugin

  • 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 capabilities to specific user roles.
  • Clone Roles: Build a new role by cloning an existing role.
  • Content Permissions / Restricted Content: Protect content to determine 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 capabilities directly into it.

Seamless MemberPress Integration

If you’re looking to build a business out of your membership site by creating paid memberships there’s no better way than to use MemberPress. Members and MemberPress work together to provide the ultimate member experience and will help you start and profit from your amazing WordPress membership sites!

All Add-ons are now included

Members now includes ALL of it’s add-ons completely free of charge! Here are some of the awesome features they add to Members:

  • Block Permissions: Allows site owners to hide or show blocks based on user logged-in status, user role, or capability.
  • Privacy Caps: Creates additional capabilities for control over WordPress’ privacy and personal data features (GDPR).
  • Admin Access: Allows site administrators to control which users have access to the WordPress admin via role.
  • Core Create Caps: Adds the create_posts and create_pages caps to posts/pages to separate them from their edit_* counterparts, providing more flexible editing capabilities.

Perché è stato creato questo plugin?

Non ero soddisfatto dei plugin disponibili per utenti, ruoli e autorizzazioni. Sì, alcuni sono buoni, ma nessuno si adattava perfettamente a quello che avevo in mente. Alcuni offrivano solo alcune funzionalità. Alcuni funzionavano completamente al di fuori delle API di WordPress. Altre non avevano licenza GPL.

Così ho costruito qualcosa che mi diverto ad usare.

Come lo uso?

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

Requisiti minimi PHP.

Members now requires PHP 5.6+

Non posso accedere al “gestore dei ruoli”.

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.

On multisite, why can’t administrators manage roles?

If you have a multisite installation, only Super Admins can create, edit, and delete roles by default. This is a security measure to make sure that you absolutely trust sub-site admins to make these types of changes to roles. If you’re certain you want to allow this, add the Create Roles (create_roles), Edit Roles (edit_roles), and/or Delete Roles (delete_roles) capabilities to the role on each sub-site where you want to allow this.

Nota: Questo cambiamento è stato fatto nella versione 2.0.2 e non ha effetto sulle installazioni esistenti di Members su sottositi esistenti.

Aiuto! Mi sono chiuso fuori dal mio sito!

Please read the documentation for the plugin before actually using it, especially a plugin that controls permissions for your site. We 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 our 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.

The interface was really great hidden under wordpress native menues in version 2.2.0 now its all over the place in its own menu, thats really not cool, I think ill be stuck with versión 2.2 forever sometimes there are just to many menues and this plugin helps to make a mess in the wp admin with the latest version.
