    Dear Chrch Admin

    I’m busy adding a directory to our church website and I found Church Admin. I really like the plug in so far, but one thin I strougle with.

    I created a bunch of test users with in the plug in or via the registration form. I added a page with the directorie and that worked fine too. Since I want to restrict the access to the directorie, I used some other plug ins like:

    * WordPress Access controll
    * BAW Login/Logout menu
    * Hide Admin Bar From Non-admins
    * Remove Dashboard Access

    Now in order to give my members access to the page, I need to create a WordPress user for each member. That only works from the plug in, when I enabele ” Anyone can register” in the WP settings. If I disable this option then the Church Admin plug in is not able to create a WP user.

    But I don’t want, that anyone can register and see the information without approval.

    What do you recomend to use to protect some pages, or is there a better way. Can you set permissions to user inside the Church Admin directorie?

    Thank you for your help.

    Best Regards

    I’m not sure I understand your question.

    If you use the church admin register shortcode on a page – people can add themselves to a page/post, the plugin doesn’t create a WP user for them.
    You can do that from their entry in the church admin by editing their entry.

    Hope that helps

    Question regarding that feature. Is the Add WP User feature just a shortcut to the base WP functionality? Does it send an email and temporary password? If you remove the plugin, do the accounts remain? Are you given the option to add them to a group? Nag, nag, nag, lol…

    Not a shortcut, although it uses WordPress functions to do it properly. It creates a subsciber level user account.
    The idea is it ties that wordpress website user id to an individual, so when someone logs in, they see what relates to them personally.
    It gives them a username of the form firstnamelastname# where # is a number if needed. And it gives a horrible secure password and emails it to the email address. The user can go into their wordpress profile and change the password if desired.
    If you delete their person record from “Church Admin” the user is not also deleted.
