    Hi All,

     

    I was wondering if anyone knew/can recommend a Studio Press or any other theme that has the ability to have a business’ customers login to view certain special pages and also to have a place where they can order services and pay there with paypal?

     

    TIA!

    I’d suggest you install the S2 member plugin.

    lovingdesign, we built our own site that does exactly what you’ve said using the Premise plugin (also by StudioPress) and the Formidable Pro forms plugin. Here’s how it works:

    • Premise handles all client purchases through PayPal. When someone buys something they get access to a client portal page, the contents of which are displayed custom to them based on what they’ve bought using the Premise shortcodes. The shortcodes look like this: `[show_to accesslevel="productname"] (link to a dedicated product page goes here) [/show_to] `This means they only get to see links to the products they’ve purchased. (In our case, they’re actually consulting services that they’ve bought, not products, but it works the same.)
    • The client goes to the dedicated product page to submit things to us. We built out file submission forms using Formidable. Each client can only see their own stuff. This is managed through some CPTs and private posts – this part was definitely trickier.

    We don’t have any experience with S2 Member so don’t know if it can do this but we did research them and decided on Premise instead.  If you don’t need your clients to submit anything to you, then the whole thing can be easily managed with Premise.

    Happy to answer other questions if you have them.
