I’m stumbled on various forum posts and some articles here a S2Member concerning accessing S2Member variables within posts, pages, and widgets. And of course i have some questions:
(1) Some articles recommend the Exec-PHP plugin. I installed the plugin (I’m still in design and test mode) and it seems to be working. But I notice it’s not “officially” tested beyond WP 2.8. Do you still recommend this plugin, or do you have other alternatives you prefer? Now that I know I can embed PHP code in a post/page, I don’t think I could live without it.
(2) In a couple of forum posts I noticed code like [S2If …. ] …. [S2EndIf]. And of course there are functions being used such as current_user_can() and current_user_is(). This is very cool indeed. Where can I get a list of the statements and functions that work inside HTML this way?
(3) In some cases i merely want to do something like display the member’s first name as in “Welcome back Bruce!”. I can do this with the Exec-PHP plugin. Is there a way to do this without needing the plugin? Maybe the S2 statements noted in #2?
(4) I learned we can have different pages display at login based on the number of logins and the membership level. Can we do a similar thing based on days? For example, at 30 days a member_level1 will be directed to an upgrade page, or at 90 days a member_level3 will be directed to a survey. I would want to base the “days” as “days within the given membership level” rather than since the initial signup.
As I mentioned, I’m still in design and testing mode, so I’m willing to try just about anything. Every day I’m finding new things that I can do with S2Member.
Thanks in advance.
