    I am in the development process of creating a plugin that slowly drips membership material to the members as opposed to just giving it to them straight away.

    Traditional Way:
    You spend hours creating membership site + content for your site that you want to sell. People lurk around and wait until the right moment to buy a membership, grab all the stuff, and take off (therefore you have more of a product then a membership). Also, they could just take all your stuff, and you would have to pray they dont do a chargeback and just literally steal all your stuff. This SUCKS!

    My Way!:
    Member Signs up for periodic installments of different modules. What this means: they sign up and right away they get something.... but not everything. If i set it to release modules weekly, then the next week, the member gets that part of the course. This means that the member will be forced to stay a paying member to release all the information they want! It also sets up a classroom style information product where they learn something new every day/week/month and they have time to implement it before moving on. This is how memberships should be!

    Since this software is in the early stages of development, I want to see what sort of features you guys would like to see in a plugin like this (probably in Joomla or maybe Wordpress). Also, I would like to see if anyone would be interested in such a plugin in the first place.

    Post any helpful feedback and I will share my plugin with you guys :)

    I don't want to spoil your party but... this kind of feature has already been made in several plug-ins and softwares. WP WishList has it.
