How to make Jigoshop only available for members/registered users?

Recommended Posts

Our current site works with Platform Pro. Much of the information on the site should only be available for registered doctors and therapists. That's why we're using the plugin WP Members: the therapist fills in his, name, address and some other info, a mail is sent to us, we check whether it's a real doctor/therapist and allow (or not) the new 'member'. WP Members also creates a special account page where a user can modify his info. We now want to add a shop to the site, so we've upgraded to Pagelines Framework and we've installed Jigoshop (we're working on a development server, so the public site is still the old Platform-site). This shop should only be available for members, too. In the Jigoshop settings we've chosen for the option to not allow guest's purchases. Using the plugin Access Control we make the Store-menu invisible for non-members. That doesn't seem the most beautiful solution, but at least it works. But then we encounter a problem: you also have to leave your address etc. when buying something and Jigoshop has a special account page for this too. But this is a different page than the WP Members account page. We've checked the database and both WP Members and Jigoshop use the wp_users and wp_usermeta. But while the user_id is the same, the meta-keys are different. For a potential buyer that will be confusing: he may update his address in WP Members but then later has to change it again in Jigoshop. Long story (sorry), but the question is: is there a smarter way to make Jigoshop only available for (checked & controlled!) members? Or do we have to rewrite the plugin WP Members to force it to use the same meta-keys as Jigoshop...? (We hope not!) Thnx for your suggestions!

Hi Essencia, I think the best course of action would be for you to bring to the attention of the JigoShop support team. http://jigoshop.com/support/
