    Hello,
    i have a customer who wants to make an online newspaper. So far so good i want to use Wordpress for him as it is easy to work with and can be customized easily.

    The Problem is i dont know which membership plugin to use to only show teaser Text and if people want to read the whole thing they have to pay?

    Any good suggestions?

    regards

    Digital Access Pass is suppose to be pretty good.

    Copy and pasted from the sales page:

    DAP will show all content from your blog posts, but only up to the "More" tag. So when Google's spider (or your visitor) arrives at your blog after you publish a new post, it/they will see a summary of the post, instead of being redirected to a login page. This is extremely powerful from an SEO perspective.

    Digital Access Pass integrates with WordPress posts, pages, and even membership levels. This means you can protect part or all the content of your pages and posts based on what level your members have signed up for or purchased. Protecting your blog content is as easy as clicking a button. And you can even use DAP with forums on your site through WordPress.

    DAP also protects your files and pages on your site OUTSIDE of WordPress. This means you can show special offer pages to particular membership levels, protect images, PDFs, audio files, video files, etc. You can even sell your products on completely different websites, or have payment links inside your emails!

    This is what Im looking for as well. I signed up for MediaPass.com but they take 35% of your earnings, so Im looking into a plugin instead.

    Are you specifically looking for a MEMBERSHIP plugin? Because as mentioned above, I believe there is a plugin where you can hide content, etc., without having to do the whole membership thing.. Let me see if I can find it.

    Magic Members will suit your needs I think.
    It has some bugs really but these are not pain in the a**.
    You can find it nulled in BHW as I remember and also you can check the product page from;

    I would say WPWishlist, that'll do what you want.

    ^Im using wishlist now, and it's a major pain; it's not even protecting pages. Not impressed.

    you dont need a plugin, just edit single.php and use php...

    follow this logic: If user is registered and is a paid member show full article, if is a guest show X words.

    Im running a job site with something similar and I only show the job contact to paid members...
