    Looking for some ideas or solutions to get a WP-based membership site going.
    What I want to achieve is a little different than traditional membership site.

    How it works is:
    1. I will give the user an 'access code'

    2. User will go to my site - subscribe (register) along the 'access code' I give them.
    So in total, there will be 3 fields; 1 for name, 1 for email, 1 for access code.

    3. User subscription info go into a mailing service database (aweber/mailchimp etc.)

    4. User gain access to part of the membership contents (based on the access code).
    For example; 001 access code gives them ebook A, 002 access code gives them to ebook A B and C etc.

    The reason why I said this is a little different than traditional ones is because;
    A. The subscription will be free and i dont need to redirect users to any payment gateway.
    B. I need to subscription info to go into a mailing service
    C. I need something that will 'recognize' the access code, so that it knows which portion of the contents to unlock for the user.

    I have looked into WP membership plugins but it doesnt seem to do what I am asking for. (or maybe I just didnt know them well enough).
    Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I heard about both amember and wishlist member plugin, but I am not sure if they are compatible with the 'access code' idea?

    s2member or the mpmudev membership plugins should both be able to handle all that :)
