Do I have to use a membership plugin to handle registration?
No, you do not have to use a membership plugin to handle registration on your WordPress website. However if you are looking for a solution to handle any of the following functionality we do recommend a membership plugin:
- Payment Gateway
- Monthly Subscriptions
- Pay Per Post
- User registration
- Protecting content other than your course
- User management
If all you need is user registration, then we recommend
Theme My Login
to assist you with a pretty login, registration, and password retrieval form. It will also perform redirects so that you can redirect your subscribers to a certain page upon login. Since WP Courseware has it's own built in security mechanism, you will never have to worry about a student or non-student viewing a course that they are not enrolled in.
