    hi there, i was thinking its time to take my website to the next level where visitor would create an account, enter code to verify he is not a bot then verify with his email, when his account is activated he can post and start threads in forums, the thing is, membership website is a plugin by its own, and forums is another plugin by its own, the question is how to related between those ?

    (side question: why all the solid websites are switching to adchoices?)

    You can verify email and complete codes etc when you signup for a forum now using any major software? What exactly do you want to do differently?

    Depends entirely on the plugins. If they are both free you may have trouble getting support on this, but if they're extremely popular, google search both the plugins together and see if there is a bridge available or if they can be integrated somehow.

    There is a possibility you'll need to migrate to another plugin.

    as suggested above buddypress will do all that for you, you can assign different privileges to different membership levels, like guest can only view - friend can post, but some places are off limits - real freind can post anywhere and mods have all privileges etc. Maybe don't call them friend though!

    You need two thing. A basic shortcode knowledge and two plugin.


    Install intense for shortcodes and wp Userfront will do the rest work!
