    Hi everyone,

    So I have a homepage at site.com. You can go on it, view it, browse on it, watch the videos on it, etc. On the homepage, I also have a a non-functional log-in screen (with username/password). I also have a VIP section which is located on site.com/vip, that area is username/password protected.

    Here is that I am looking for...
    1. Make the log-in screen functional.
    2. Get some software to work for a members area...

    In other words.. I need a company that will install some software that will make the log-in screen work and integrate it with the VIP area. And in order to sign up, there is a feee (so it must go through PayPal/Escrow) as well...

    Any thoughts/opinions/comments.. PLEASE, everything is welcome! I've been working on this project for so long (First project ever), and really want to launch it because I feel good about this. But this is the only step that is holding me back, since everything else is pretty much done.

    Hmm... Anyone can help me out please? Maybe somewhere to read or to look? I'm totally clueless for this part, and really want to get this thing started... I'm SO CLOSE! I just need to connect the two, and get all the stuff working. I want to outsource it to some company.

    ok well you are limited as such with membership plugins, but the s2 member plugin will do what you want. Takes a bit of tinkering with, but you should be fine with it

    I will look into it!:D

    But it looks like I will need to get the $629 one... Since that is the only package that offers an instillation as well... wow...:(

    EDIT: Yeah, they say that I need to find my own freelancer in order to integrate it, etc. Ugh...

    If it's just script installation and setting up a database I could probably help you out. Let me know if you need a wee bit of help.

    + It is not only that, I also need someone to make the log-in fully functional...

    This is what it should be...

    1. Person goes on site
    2. Person clicks "Sign up"
    3. Person picks user name + password
    4. Person pays wit PayPal/Visa
    5. Person makes a 'purchase'
    6. Person logs in
    7. Person enters the VIP section

    you should be able to do it all yourself, if you can install a wp blog and make ammendments you should easily be able to set up s2members

    Take a look at membersgear. It is a free script and you can protect the members area files.

    Ugh... I'm not really down with the whole free stuff...
    I learned that free stuff in life usually come with some big minus or disadvantage.

    As far as I know, Aweber is simply an auto-responder, in fact if you take a look at their website, the title reads "Email Marketing Software & Email Marketing Services from AWeber".

    OP, just a heads up, I dropped you a PM :).
