WordPress newbie question:
I am re-doing our company website using WordPress (i.e. it is NOT a blog). I wish to create a registered user database to, among other things, limit downloads of marketing material to registered users only (for the purpose of recording potential sales opportunities). I will also use this logon for the purpose of controlling access to our support knowledge base. Does your User Registration add-on fit this model or is it tailored more for creating/maintaining WordPress users (i.e. blog posters)? In a conventional, non-WordPress web environment (i.e. pure HTML with an underlying database), I would craft this solution using a database of my own creation and therefore have to maintain the access control, e-mail correspondence, etc... myself. Using WordPress and the wonderful world of plugins, I'm trying to avoid doing all this myself. Am I off-base here trying to use your add-on for this purpose?
From a client perspective, I'm trying to present something akin to what your own site does with user registration:
- present new users with a register link
- present existing users with a logon screen
- provide a password request/reset function
From a developer perspective, I need to be able to validate logons and subsequently determine what the user can, and cannot, see/do on the site.
Thanks in advance for any-and-all assistance.
