    Hi Lindsay,

    You have nailed the topic by explaining all the details to create a membership site using the WordPress. I was searching for a perfect guide in implementing the same.

    As I’m a WordPress theme designer, I would like to start a template site and monetize it with a membership plugin. Good to know the details of paid memberships pro, I’ll get it for sure.

    Thanks for your comprehensive guide, have a good day!

    HI Lindsay thanks for the article.

    A question I have and hopefully you can help. I am offering two options to a blog membership, monthly pricing and yearly. I have set up the two levels to give the same access without a problem. In order to have people go for the yearly price I would like to offer one of my products/services free of charge for signing up for that yearly payment. I know how to offer a discount or even make a product or service free of charge, however is there a way to limit the number of times they can purchase that free product or service to once yearly?

      In the meantime, thanks for stopping by WP Mayor!

    Thanks for this detailed tutorial. I am a happy user of PMP since a half year and I spent much time on finding a solution to control ads on membership sites. One week ago, I Finally found a very comfortable solution which provides the option to me not just to hide all ads globally on PMP-pages, but to show/hide ads in relation to the user role and to the required membership level on the specific pages.

    They show some scenarios how to manage ads on those sites in this article: https://wpadvancedads.com/manage-ads-on-membership-sites/

    I need to abate webmasters hope a little bit: this solution was developed by Advanced Ads and is only available in the Pro version of the free plugin. But if you have been looking for a solution like me, you are possibly interested into it.

      Hi Thomas,

      I am so glad you enjoyed the tutorial…that always makes my day! I am also glad to hear that you have been using Paid Memberships Pro for some time now, and that it works for you.

      In addition, I appreciate you recommending a solution for managing ads on your website. I am sure there are plenty of website owners just like you that have been looking for a way to remedy this issue. And, despite it being a paid version, if it helps and fits into someone’s budget it is probably well worth it.

      Thanks again for stopping by!

      ~ Lindsay 🙂

    Hello Lindsay,

    Truly, Paid Memberships Pro is powerful but it can be more with a GUI form builder to customize the forms. Luckily, there is one

    Thank you for the information!

    I am using Paid Memberships Pro and GeoDirectory (GD), do you know how to stop non-members from reading my GD listings?


    I can only stop them from reading posts and pages but not listings…

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    WordPress is no doubt one of the best tools when it comes for the creation of membership websites, but its a nightmare when you have to maintain it. Also changing or updating it once in while in accordance with new trends is an additional headache. So I switched to an another option and hired a professional to do the same for me. After that I was able to concentrate on the content generation of my website. People who helped me are here: https://streetsmartbusinessgrowth.com/ Hope they will help others too.

    Good to see how to use multiple plugins for this purpose, although even here – as well as with most other membership plugins – I miss the very important double-option during the registration process.
    It would be nice if you would show us how to complement the standard user-registration with a double-opt-in feature, so that any new user who registers need to verify the ownership of the email address, that he has entered during registration, prior to confirming the registration
