    Some good ones? I unfortunately can’t get “Pathless Category Links” to work properly for me. Shame really, I could do with that :) I’ll keep an eye on it…

    MEMBERWING PLUGIN does not do what they promise!

    Seriously, If youre looking to buy a plugin for membership blogs this plugin does only the half of what they say on their site.

    I purchased this plugin at $99 a few days ago, and here is what I discovered. I needed a plugin for membership blog and like everyone else I was blind sighted by the promises that I saw on this plugin website about USER SUBSCRIPTION AUTOMATION. Now they are dependent on PayPal for this feature. So, here is what they replied to me on my request:

    There are 3 ways to have person register with membership site:
    1. Send him to http://www.YOUR-SITE-NAME.com/wp-login.php to register as “subscriber”
    2. With memberwing – without charging him any fees: follow these instructions:
    http://www.memberwing.com/memb.....t-payment/
    3. With MemberWing by creating “join” page, creating “subscribe” button via paypal, pasting paypal “subscribe” button into “join” page and following instructions here:
    http://www.memberwing.com/soft.....ser-guide/

    I choose the 3rd option and did everything by books but heres what I found when testing it! When users Subscribe and checkout on PayPal its MANDATORY that they create a PayPal account unless they have one, fair enough and understood because PayPal is responsible for managing user subscriptions so it needs to keep a record of user information their subscription date etc. Seriously No offense, but I think this process should have been integrated into the plugin itself, which is not the case and here’s what I get in another reply from my support request:

    Hello,
    You are correct in your estimation that some users would not like to join Paypal to join membership site.
    It could be too much hassles for people and lost sales for membership site business owners.

    I would rather not get into full blown e-commerce shopping cart development but use existing services.
    One of the viable alternative to Paypal is 2checkout.com. They do support recurring payments and seems to allow API for integration with other scripts.

    I will look into integrating 2CO in memberwing as next enhancement.

    Thank you for your detailed concern!

    Pretty comforting thought, now I have client who needs this system up and running before this guy pulls off his sleeves and finishes up with the 2checkout.com integration. Screw them! I can’t wait for that long and neither does my client, so here’s what I did I purchased another plugin hopefully which has all the promises they make!

    IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUY THIS ILL-COOKED PLUGIN THEN DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. STAY AWAY AND TRY ANOTHER PLUGIN. THESE GUYS ARE PROBABLY LAZY AND NAIVE SINCE THEY HAVE TO DEPEND ON PAYPAL FOR SUCH FEATURES
