Briefly, my business model is described next, and what I really want to know is if s2member supports this business model:
A candidate, candidate to be a member, can choose for the free subscription (the default), which allows him/her to gain read access to the public contents of all child sites of my network, but if he/she chooses to pay a fee, he/she gains access (read) to premium contents on any child sites of my Multisites Network, and also to submit (write) for publishing (after admin approval) some items or contents in any of the sites of my Network (not create a new site/blog, only submitting content to sites/blogs I manage myself).
Therefore s2member would have to have the capability to share members between differents sites of the same Multisites Network and allow access / change the access status depending on the membership plan he/she has choosen (change between membership plans), which can be upgradable in any moment.
I need ONE unique registration / membership for all Sites in the Multisites Network, with the possibility to access different membership plans, each allowing access to the corresponding features or contents on any sites of the Network. Further: without the need of manually adding the new accounts for any child site -I mean, once registered in 1 child site (through whatever membership plan -the free is the default) there would be no need to register again, or manually add it through backend, into the other sites of the Network, cause when registering for 1 child site it means that the user account is automatically created for all the sites of the Network.
Even +, membership plans should include the possibility to allow registered members to access to the paid features not for all sites in the Network but only for the ones the plan includes.
As I’m planning to pay for the pro version I ‘d like to know if s2member plugin can fit in my business model.
And the last question (thanks for your patiente):
If I configure s2member to not work for a farm, is there any problem in upgrading my s2member installation in the future to include the farm capabilities/security pacthes, or will I have to do a fresh reinstall to use the farm?
Lots of thanks and excuse me for the long post.
