Recently, Pixelita Designs undertook to investigate several popular membership plugins for WordPress. Most of them tend to be geared toward selling “subscriptions” to protected content or digital media downloads (ebooks, etc.). Only two, CSS Jockey Front-End Membership and Member Mouse, seemed more “member-centric” and focused more on the member, with custom member profile pages and social media logins available. Those two are Restrict Content Pro and MemberPress. We’ve decided to share that research with you in the hopes that it might save you some time. And in this business, time is money!
