Client area/private content in DMS

Recommended Posts

emilyf

Has anyone out there successfully put together a client area on a DMS site?]

Our site's gone live (www.brianboggschairmakers.com) and my boss would like to add an area for clients to sign up and view a personalized page for them, complete with their order information, wait times, recently viewed pages, etc. Note that we do not SELL online, so we don't need ecommerce capability. We just want the client to be able to log in and view their personalized account page. 

I know that this can be accomplished using plugins like WP Customer Area (https://wordpress.org/plugins/customer-area/) but I am specifically wondering about compatibility with PageLines. 

Anybody else out there do this? How has it interfered with the visual editor? Any recommended plugins?

Hi,

All PageLines products follow the WordPress API standards and therefore in theory it should be compatible with all plugins released for WordPress. However, some plugin developers do not following these standard strictly and can cause issues. Other plugins do some rather odd things or have scripts that cause issues.

If you want a client area then you will probably want to check out this plugin, I've heard good things about it and know at least one users who has used it with our product.

Thanks for the pointers! After a little bit of research and flip-flopping with management, I have a better idea of what I need to do and would be interested in hearing if any other Pagelines users have accomplished something similar.

I want to create private pages (not posts) for specific individuals. But since Pagelines creates Pages through the visual editor (not the WP loop) many of WP's out-of-the-box privatization solutions do not work. For example, I can't simply password protect a page through WP's publishing settings: that only blocks access to WP-generated content. On a page where there isn't any - like almost all of my pagelines website - the password prompt won't show up.

Anyone have any recommendations for creating user-specific content with Pagelines?

All plugins that allow you to protect your content or only show to specific user group(s) will all use the WordPress content i.e. the loop. Therefore, you're going to need to create your content via the page/post content editor.

      I'm trying to login at the plugin, but page just doesn't load. I already paid for Pro Tools and can't use it. I sent email to support and I had no answer.

      Hello,
      I'm starting to use the platforms 5, while installing a second service after installation platfrom5 and theme, I wanted to activate your account. After entering the login and password, nothing happened, reappeared account screen (click and takes us to the login page PageLines). I do not know what's going on?
      License developer.
      The first service works flawlessly.
      I greet and ask for help.

      I cannot figure out how to keep my account logged in?  Every time I go back to it it says that I am not logged in. 
       
      I need to figure out how to get the footer watermark removed..but because it won't let me stay logged in, I can't figure out where to do that at.
       
      Please help.
