Today’s Sweet Plugin extends the user management system within WordPress to make the modification of user roles, capabilities, and permissions really simple. If you’ve ever been interested in membership sites, or tweaking capabilities on your WordPress site, you should really sit through this episode.
The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.
Members is a well structured, well thought out plugin that really feels like a natural extension of WordPress. It makes the process of adding new user roles, tweaking capabilities of user roles, and restricting content to certain user roles very, very easy. I recommend it to any friends who are considering various membership solutions for their WordPress sites. If you do any work in that field at all, you must look at Members.
Members was recently updated from 0.1 to 0.2, and saw some nice improvements. I’m really looking forward to the future development of this plugin.
Video recorded with version 0.2 of Members, running WordPress 3.1.3.
About the plugin author
It likely feels like just yesterday we were looking at one of Tadlock’s plugins. Odds are we’ll come back around to his other plugins too. He does great work!
