I’ve been hunting for a solution to my problem for a while, and after hacking at several plugins, I came across S2, and so far, I’m blown away!
Planning on purchasing Pro to support the development, but a few questions first. I’m working my way through the training videos (which have been vary helpful). I also searched the forum and found several questions similar to mine, but none that address my specific needs.
I’m experimenting with a multi-organization, small group based educational site. The short version of it is, that I have lots of content pages, each containing a weeks worth of daily lessons. I need to way to “assign” these pages to different groups each week.
So for example: I have 2 organizations (#1 and #2), each with 3 groups (A, B, C). I need to be able to direct group #1.A to content page “science intro”, #2.B to “chemical reactions”, #1.C to “genetics”.
The “front page” for the site I’m building as a general overview of what the site is and how it operates. So I need a “portal” link within my menu that users click on which initiates the redirect process. The problem I’ve found with other WP plugins (like Peter’s Login/Logout) is that the redirect ONLY happens on login. Most of my users remained logged in, and I haven’t found a good solution for redirecting them.
Question #1 – Is this possible? I’d love for it to work based on custom user roles (as each user will be assigned one like this: Orgname_group#1
Question #2 – How easy would it be to change the content page assigned to a particular group? I’ll be changed them each week, and will have a growing number of groups starting with about 10. I don’t see a way to automate this, but I’m open to suggestions
I know that S2 isn’t designed for groups, but my current plan is to have different subscription plans, which offer a set number of users (#1 -> 10, #2 -> 25, #3 -> 50), then I’ll manually provide the subscribing group with a list of invitation codes for them to use to allow their users to register.
Question #3 – I currently use an Invitation Code plugin, which seems to work fine with S2, however, I don’t want the “organizational leader” to have to have an invitation code to subscribe. Is it possible to have an alternate registration for? One for the organizational leader, and another for the individual users?
Thanks for taking the time to answer these. If something doesn’t make sense, let know and I’ll provide more details. My brain is a little fuzzy at the moment (my son was born yesterday!).
