I am trying to replicate some of the functionality found on the gravity website. Specifically I will be selling products just like gravity does, and then provide support forums to paying members.
I notice that since I do not currently own the developers license, that I am not allowed in the forums for the addons. Yet I still have access to the gravity forum as I purchased the product.
What I am trying to do:
A user purchases a product, and behind the scenes they are then allowed to access a support forum specific to that product. All non-members of the product cannot see the forum posts.
I have seen a lot of websites like gravity following this model, but have yet to see a set of tools anywhere that will allow this to happen easily.
I would love to hear how gravity is handling this, and whether or not I should purchase the gravity developers license in order to accomplish the same. At the moment, I have no idea what forum/plugins to use to accomplish this task.
