|sociallyfamous||Is there anyone out there who was able to connect the two plugins User Frontend Pro and Paid Membership with the USD 19 add-on plugin? I had two guys and myself looking into it. After 6 weeks of trying it and contacting support no one seems to see an issue. Is there anyone who was able to implement it? After payment I have a credit assigned to User Front End Pro and it also says expired, so that one cannot post even after payment. The support is asking me to setup a fresh WP install to prove that there is an issue with it. Yes my site is German but you are charging money for your plugins which I bought on your recommendation so I would at least expect some more than.... "Mate I was confused on your site and I cannot see any problem" I am going to try to ask one last person to fix it but this kind work will cost me 100 USD plus.... Seriously I am a bit disappointed.

Sorry to hear that.
Have you configured the expire date when creating the membership level in Paid Memberships Pro?

Also make sure in PMPro that you assign your WPUF Pro form page the ability to give users access to that page. That seems like an important tip that was not sufficiently given importance in the instructions. 😉

@paperweight Thank you for your attempts to help, but I am looking for alternatives right now and I see that you had mentioned the WPMU plugin. I am testing the process now using user roles with specific amounts of post per user role rather than any bridge plugins.

@ Tareq, I have given up for now. Yes of course I tried setting an expiry period. It seems Paypal has specific requirements on how to input periods and there is a difference between 5 years and 60 months for example. I just can take it anymore for now. Thanks anyways.

Hi, I have been a member at WPMUDEV for a couple years and use a couple of their plugins (far less than I should). The Membership plugin is not as good as PMPro for my uses, so I am sticking with PMPro and WPUF. Membership lacks invoices and basic e-commerce things I need in a plugin. PMPro has almost everything I need. Neither is perfect though.
This WPUF plugin is not perfect and has some deficiencies too. But support is good and the plugin is getting better. I also use wp-types, which is much much more powerful but involves much more time and programming effort. I also tried Gravity Forms, but ultimately WPUF does everything best.

@sociallyfamous – how is it going for you with new settings?
@paperweight – Thanks for nice feedback. Each plugin has own upside and downside. Glad to know wpuf working for you like champ 🙂

@paperweight Hey thanks for your detailed reactions. The reason I am trying WPMUDEV Membership is because it allows me to assign a subscription to a specific role, and with another plugin I can limit the amount of posts per role. So I am achieving similar results as with a potentially working bridge between Frontend Plugin and Membership Pro where I would be able to charge per credit but which is not working for me so now I am charging per role with a specific post limit. Its not as laser sharp but it seems to work.
And I am also using Types and Gravity forms…
I never had the luxury to worry about e-commerce invoices as I never got that far, lol.
I do like WPUF however for most of its functionality.
@mahi I am still not quite sure. What is always a worry is what happens to published posts once you downgrade? There are so many things which are not clear using WPUF and any other in combination of plugins. If you are already in the space, why not solving the problem 100%. Eventually someone will pick up on the front editing idea too and you will quickly disappear if you do not get a firm grip on it now.

@sociallyfamous: What is the name of the other plugin you found that limits the number of posts by role?
