We are looking for a couple of function features. If some of your software packs already has these please forgive my ignorance. If they are not in place yet, could you please consider adding them? These are well researched and needed in general practice.
1. Is it possible to restrict any registered users to post articles for free BUT only in one specified category?
(this is so users aren’t able to publish their posts in not free categories accessible only to users who pay for the content. Admin can post in all categories.)
2. When users publish free posts (or oven if they pay for making posts), is it possible for the admin to approve these articles first before the new content goes live. I am not talking about the lowest ‘contributor’ user role level in standard WP as that simply doesn’t have good features at all. This is what your plugin could do. Also admin must approve edited posts before any updated content takes live effect.
(this is important, full of dilemma actually, because if a site is for general public, AND if using adsense!, no inappropriate content should be allowed to go through. Some members can post a bad spam as you can imagine. Admins and site owners should be allowed to sleep without such stress.)
3. Hypothetically; I have protected content on many posts (all of the posts are under one category as a group for one subject). Users pay for the access to this category (beside the point they can also comment on each post as per normal wp). NOW, because I am not too commercial bloke, I would like to manually open the category to a general public from time to time. To unregister/not-logged-in visitors. Say for a special occasions like Thanks Giving or Christmas periods. Then when I decide it’s enough for charity, I will protect the category back again what it was before. Is it possible to do this by ONE click in the eMember module?
4. This may be a new feature request, or request for a completely new software brand from you. A full featured business directory plugin for WordPress is hard to find. I saw one system in WP plugins’ repository but it’s not easy to navigate through as it is built. Also, customers(registered users) should be able to open their listings them selves. Can you make it adding it to you software collection?
* PS We’ve been using eStore for a long time, selling, squeeze page, email list, it’s really absolutely great. Now we would like to add eMember and Affiliates.

1. What a user can publish or not is handled by the core WordPress. eMember only handles the membership side of things. So for example, you can configure eMember so that when a member signs up for a particular membership level he/she gets a particular Role. Now what this role can do in the admin side is controlled by WordPress not eMember.
2. This is similar to the first point explained above. Remember, you can customize what a particular role can do (eg. they can only save a post in draft so an admin has to publish it). A role manager plugin can easily be used to customize or create additional roles in your WordPress installation then use eMember to assign the members to various roles when they signup.
3. You can simply use the category protection which lets you protect all posts in that category in one click (no need to individually protect or unprotect every posts).
4. I will look into this.
Glad to hear that you like the eStore plugin.August 19, 2010 at 3:24 am #23453nucleusMember
Thank you Amin. I value your advice. We have ~4K out of 20K pages listed in google, 5K unique visits /day so the new improvements should function right from the start.
4. I will be the first customer to buy your ~’eBusinessDirectory’ from you. Please make such software again integrated with all your other modules. (As you can see my wishful thinking is activated.) But such module can be easily adapted to all areas/niches on the web; ads, directories(click/bricks and mortar businesses), categories of any kind. Just a few ideas. Let me know if I can be of any help!
1. – 2. Glad to see that this is possible. I am exploring now a couple of high rated role and post management plugins in WP org that do these.
*Also have to research whether to change to the multisite install is better to go with now (even if only one shared blog is allowed).
