“quickcache replaces apache.” ~ now I’ve heard it all.

I just downloaded and installed the development version from here and there certainly seems to be some differences.

OK, that’s excellent news, only you don’t say HOW you’re going to support it and via which payment gateway ~ or is this something native you are doing?

I remember at one time Paypal claimed they were not allowed to sell Bitcoins, while we thought Google Checkout would be a viable option. The Chinese are able to buy Bitcoins with Alipay while Americans cannot with PayPal. PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, and even Google Checkout now have rules which make it impossible for merchants to sell Bitcoins. It is ridiculous that Chinese individuals have more freedom to buy Bitcoins while citizens of the United States are forced to buy Bitcoins through “non-standard” methods due to excessive laws which have a knock-on global effect.

I live in Europe (UK) so I just hope the payment gateway you choose is either going to be European, Europe agnostic or maybe Chinese.

Vincent, does that 3 year old PHP plugin still work? This PHP snippets plugin is more up-to-date, looks like it might be a better bet anyway AND allows you to install each PHP snippet as a shortcode, wherever you want.

Just been reading here and I have a much better feel for the problem now, or so I thought, but I had still to find the solution.

My members need to be on one domain/site, and the public needs to be on the other. Only problem is, both sites need their access levels protecting and I want to have an SSO (single sign on).

Anyway, then I found this WordPress 3.0: Multisite Domain Mapping Tutorial which tells me

This will make your login pages for all sites redirect to your main site to do the actual login. The benefit of this is that when you log in to one, you log into all of them. The downside is that the URL changes to another domain in order to log in.

But the downside are not downsides for me and the upsides are what I want.

And then again I found this at WPMU.DEV

However, and this is the reason I use Doncha\’s plugin, the WPMU DEV plugin does not handle remote logins. On a multisite network where you want folks to be able to browse the network, and still be logged in to all sites regardless of domain, only Doncha\’s plugin handles that (it also handles ajax along with this – the WPMU DEV plugin does not).

And then, later on, I find this…

Domain Mapping plugin – Lets all sites within one network have a domain mapped. This does not support single sign on. Multi Domains – This allows a WordPress install to run multiple networks. Each domain is owned by you and has single sign on.

So now I am really confused…

P.S. I wonder, can I just request it as an additional function to s2Member if I buy PRO?… 8^)

@Raam ~ the more I look at this the more I am getting confused because in just a little later I read this…

User Access
By design, all users who are added to your network will have subscriber access to all sites on your network. To allocate a different default role for users on individual sites, you must use a plugin, such as Multisite User Management.

Now s2Member recognizes my multisite installation and patches WordPress so it runs in that environment, which means, I take it, that s2Member is managing access on each of the sites in the network.

What does it matter, and why should s2Member then stop working, if external to this I map one of the WordPress site URLs to a different domain?

Thanks Raam, that sounds like it might work. I\’ll need to study it a little more. Sounds like I will need to use roles to resolve any access issues on the *.coop site and use s2Member for the *.com site.

That should work, but as always, the devil is in the details.

OK, thanks Raam. I’ll go see what already exists at and beyond.

@Jason That’s excellent. That’s exactly what I need, to have all-cptname protect all the custom post types. However, in your answer, you didn’t tackle the other issue of providing secure upload capability for members. So far I haven’t found that in s2, only secure download. Is it there in PRO but not in the free version?

@BD Dale ~ you turn up here and make all kinds of assertions about the way these guys run their business and their unseemly practices, and then, when you find out that it wasn’t them but you that was causing the problem, you don’t even bother to return, admit your mistake and apologize. Now, to make a mistake is only human. We all do it at some time or another. But to not have the decency to admit your mistake and say sorry is pathetic.
