The wordpress membership solutionPrivateContent is probably the easiest way to create an users database into your wordpress website. Seamlessly integrated, is based on user categories: then no more basic roles, you can virtually have unlimited levels!
Each user can be assigned to one or more categories giving you the maximum flexibility possible, this means complete freedom in creating simple or complex patterns to properly store them and eventually restrict your site contents.
The plugin has got also some extra features to help you manage users with ease, such as category filter, data sorting and an internal advanced search.
Gives also the ability of deactivate users, to keep them in the database but deactivating accesses to reserved areas.
Finally you can export user lists in Excel (.xls) or CSV format, or import them using a CSV file.
Really useful for large external databases!
Protect your contents
Plus you can choose to show a warning box or just hide data inside shortcode and also show custom messages.
Assume you want to show a gallery only to an user in a specific category, just type:
And result will be like this (use “test1” as username and “test” as password)
[pc-pvt-content allow="10" warning="1"] [mediagrid cat="9" filter="0" r_width="auto"] [/pc-pvt-content]
You must be logged in to view this content - login
Selective lock downBut PrivateContent is not only its shortcode: every website part can be hidden to suit your needs.
Completely restrict entire areas of your website. Easy as select user categories in a side-box, any user not matching requirements will be redirected to a default page.
Example: try to reach this page. If not logged, you’ll be redirected to the current one.
Is also possible to extend plugin to restrict custom post types and custom taxonomies.
Menu items can be hidden. PrivateContent integrates directly in WordPress UI.
Be sure to be logged and check PrivateContent sub-menu on this website, you’ll see the “Hidden pvtContent menu” item that before was not accessible!
Not enough? You can setup custom URL-based restrictions, supporting regular expressions, targeting multiple pages.
Still need a radical solution? Lock entire website with one click, just checking a single option in plugin settings!
Users private pageWith PrivateContent each user has got an own private page, automatically generated.
It is accessible through an unique page, where contents are dynamically changed to ensure maximum security.
Of course you can also disable reserved area for certain users.

Wordpress user system syncPrivateContent users can also be synced with wordpress users. What does it means?
A mirror wordpress user will be strictly linked with PrivateContent one: same username, same password, same e-mail.
This turns into a huge advantage: not only users will be able to login through PrivateContent and WordPress forms, but also use WP-based systems. From basic thing as post comments to advanced ones as WooCommerce!
Also user private pages take advantages from sync: is now possible to enable private comments to directly communicate with users.
Everything without landing on WordPress admin panel or seeing WordPress elements. Take a look at this screencast to know more
Custom skin builderPlugin comes with three preset form skins (minimal, light, dark) adapting to any theme, immediately.
But you can also create your own unique style: using colors, font size and family, setting field borders and padding as well as border radius.
Everything directly from an handy user interface and with few clicks.
For example forms in this website take color scheme from minimal style, with a little touch of green on buttons to match with LCweb colors.
Unlimited registration forms
PrivateContent comes with a poweful form builder to create unlimited forms and only use fields you need!
You can also add text blocks to help customers filling in forms and of course every element can be freely sorted and set as required.
Finally, add a proper disclaimer to let users accept your TOS or privacy rules.
Safety first: set your security level requiring specific password strength patterns and lengths. Two anti-spam systems to choose from: invisible honey-pot trap or fully-responsive reCAPTCHA validation.
Registration form has also got two layouts: one-column or fluid (auto-adaptive) and of course both are responsive and designed to be used on any device.
Still need more flexibility? Registration form shortcode has got useful parameters to force form layout, assign custom categories or redirect users after registration.
Plus, you can always insert the category field in forms structure to let users choose their level.
Note: additional fields can be added through User Data add-on
