If you are a church, a fellowship, religious organization or reading group, you may find that you want only certain users to be able to view parts of your site. wp-Member allows you to select which user groups on your site can view each post, page or category.
As an example, you could create a category that only registered and authorized members can view. In here you could post your church notices, meeting minutes, news, readings etc.
You can create unlimited protected posts, pages, categories and access levels. When a user signs up, you can then choose to upgrade the member to have access to your protected posts, pages and categories. This stops unwanted users from getting information you do not want to be available outside your organization.
If you have a large membership, you could create as many access levels as you want. For example, you could have one access level for the younger members. In here you could have jokes, games or any other fun activities you want. You could then have a second access level for older members who will be able to access the church notices, this weeks bible readings, news or anything else you wanted your older members to view.
Sending out a newsletter is very easy and can be done with a single click. You can send the newsletter to all access levels, or pick individual access levels.
