Hi I want all my site content to be seen by the general public and restrict all wordpress functions to visitors! Witch I can do by must be log in! I want to offer free membership signup but also restrict all wordpress functions i.e. ability to reply to comments! But give free members the ability to use bookmarks and maybe some other functions not sure as to what yet! It must sound like a crazy set up! but my reasoning for this is for me as the site owner it gives me the ability to offer free members upgraded levels and discounted offers also the ability to send out newsletters and so on!
This is my membership level structure I’m wanting to set up
Paid subscription full access to wordpress functionality
What I need to know from you is how to restrict free membership wordpress functions?
Your help will be much appreciated

What do you define as “WordPress functions”? If you can elaborate on this then I should be able to give you a good answer.
You can user eMember’s “Members Must be Logged in to Comment” feature to make it so only users can comment on your site. See the eMember settings for the above mentioned option.December 19, 2012 at 4:38 am #52521
By WordPress functions I mean Leave a Reply / comment on a post topic! I only want paid members to have that ability! I want my free eMember membership level to be restricted from been able to reply or commenting on a post! because thats what I’m selling the ability to interact on my topics! By letting members sign up for free gives them the ability to bookmark post pages topics and news emails offers and so on! I want the free members because it makes for good business!

Go to Manage Members menu and edit the “Free Membership” level, uncheck “comments” in “Global Access To” options and check this option for all the other level where you want your customers to be able to comment.December 25, 2012 at 5:08 am #52523

Hi Peter, we don’t have an option that allows you to control the “ability to post/reply comment” on a per membership level. This option is controlled on a “member or non-member” level.
eMember has functions that you can use to determine the membership level of a user and then add/tweak your theme code to put additional restriction where you want. Please take a look at this documentation which has example code that shows you how you can retrieve details of a member’s membership level and add conditional code:
