Edd Members

Edd Members is add-on plugin for Easy Digital Downloads. It gives you power to set content private and build membership site in no time.

Commercial Plugin

EDD Members is a commercial Plugin available in my site Foxland. The plugin is hosted here on a public Github repository in order to better faciliate community contributions from developers and users alike. If you have a suggestion, a bug report, or a patch for an issue, you can submit it here.

If you are using the plugin on a live site it would be cool that you purchase a valid license from Plugin page. After that you get support and automatic updates.

Support and documentation

How does EDD Members work?

  • Site owner can make any public post type content private.
  • Or site owner can make singular post type content private.
  • Plugin is filtering the_content when content is suppose to be private.
  • Plugin loads content-private.php template for private content and that can be overwritten in a theme edd-members folder.
  • Site admin have capability edd_members_show_all_content by default and can see everything. All the others can't see the content that's marked as private.
  • In EDD download site owner can choose does he/she enable membership for particular download and pick membership length.
  • You can also set different membership lengths for variable prices. This works kind of like a subscription levels.
  • After user have purchased one item that has membership enabled at any time length, user can see the content. The expire date is calculated and saved in user_meta.
  • Site owner can set email notification before or after expire date.
