I’m hoping to build a site on which I have full user control so that the public is limited from accessing all content. WP User Manager seems like a strong plug in to manage that. BUT the directory options it seems to offer pale in comparison to your directory plug in. So I’m interested in using both. (FWIW, this will be a website for extended family connections.)
I see that your directly plug in allows for access to the directory to be restricted. Will there be a conflict if I add an additional user management plug in for the other content?
re: Will there be a conflict if I add an additional user management plug in for the other content?
No, there should be no conflict… here’s why. The Connections entries are not WordPress Users, they are completely separate (by design). You can link a WP user to a Connections entry with the Link extension. The content between the two are not “shared” even when linked. The Link extension basically allows one WP user to add/edit one Connections entry.
Does that answer your question?
Yes, it does! Thanks so much! That’s really helpful; a very smart extension.
I appreciate the clarity of information you have about Connections, as well as your quick reply!
