Mighty Membership is a full-featured component for creating subscription based websites using Joomla 1.5 native. With subscriptions, you can restrict access to any page or action of any component of your website. Upon subscribing a user gains access to the content defined in the subscription plan. Generally, Membership blocks a user from accessing certain content of your website until the user gets subscribed.
Mighty Membership allows you to restrict access to:
Components. With Membership's subscriptions you can restrict access to an entire component or part(s) of it. For example, you can create a subscription that restricts access to the entire 'Article manager' component or create a subscription that restricts adding articles to Article manager's categories.
Categories of articles. With Mighty Membership's subscriptions you can easily restrict categories of articles created with Article Manager or Mighty Resources. Note, if you use blog view layout for displaying the articles, intro parts of the articles remain visible to non-subscribers.
Individual articles. Mighty Membership allows you to restrict access to specific articles.
In addition to the features stated above, you can create subscriptions bound to certain users. Also, with Mighty Membership you can create discount coupons and bind them to users and/or subscription plans.
Mighty Membership component is connected to payment systems, such as PayPal and 2Checkout via respective payment plugins(other payment plugins can be found at http://www.osdcs.com/). Once a user buys a subscription plan through PayPal or 2Checkout, the integrated payment processor automatically enables user to access the restricted area the purchased subscription covers.
Membership works only with registered users. A non-registered user cannot buy a subscription. To buy a subscription a user should sign in to your site first.
When you restrict content of your site with Membership, the links to the restricted content remain visible to non-subscribers but cannot be accessed.
