I wonder if anyone can suggest a theme solution for an online fitness site that allows viewers to sign in and be taken to a page that only they can see. We are wondering if the password protect section on the wordpress control panel for pages would be ok to use as we have only seen one or two themes that allow users to sign in. Really appreciate any advice on this subject.

Depends what you want to do…

But you can already allow users to sign on to your site…

You can also use buddy press plugin for a more forum based site.

Hi iamthwee Thanks for the reply. Basically we want the user to be taken to a page they can only see when they login. This page will be updated by us every week with videos and text etc etc. The site will have several pages that are open to everyone, but we thought a login option could be placed on everypage then the user would be taken to their exclusive data. This page would also be hidden from search engines etc. I guess a robots file closing the page would help here?? Can you explain a tiny bit more please about the users signing in as this is the first time we have came across this request. Thanks again for the swift reply.

Well, you should know that inside the Wordpress admin you can create new users with various permissions.

Now this can be done on your website, so you have a logon button where the user can register with an email address or something similar.

BBpress might be too opaque for your requirements. So you might consider coding this one from scratch. But essentially, you’d be querying the database for the given user and directing them to a page that is only visible to that user. TBH , I’ve not looked into it so maybe someone with more experience can help.

I am basically looking for the same thing. I have used the plugin theme-my-login in the past successfully but I really think that themes should come with some sort of login system. On almost all sites I do there is a need for clients to view whatever the bought or view files for them… I think this is pretty basic and it seems to be missing in the WP community.

Well if you are buying stuff a e-commerce plugin would do the trick nicely. Woocommerce is the best one out there and it is free to use.

This depends. If you are selling stuff an ecommerce site will do its job on the login. However if you aren’t then you have two options… go through the entire theme and edit out the stuff that makes it look like a shopping cart (and then what do you do when you update theme) or turn off cart and install an outside plugin like the one I suggested.

I would say roughly 30-40% of the sites I create have the need for user login and access groups without product/service being sold on the site.

I would agree with djmceltic. Some Jamoola sites seem to have some sort of login option for members. Cheers for the help djmceltic and iamthwee. If I find a solution I will post it her. Thanks again
