Developing a WordPress Membership Plugin with Blair Williams
In this episode I talk to Blair Williams – creator and founder of MemberPress – about the history of the plugin, essential features membership sites need to get ahead, the state of the WordPress membership plugin market and what the future holds for MemberPress.
As both fans and active users of MemberPress, we enjoyed finding out from Blair what led to the creation of the plugin, and what the mindset of the MemberPress team is when it comes to continuously improving and enhancing the plugin.
We also discuss the pros and cons of running a self-hosted WordPress membership site vs using a cloud solution, what the biggest “gap” is that membership plugin developers still need to address and what features and integrations the MemberPress team are currently focusing on.
Even if you’re not using MemberPress for your own site, this is an interesting peek behind the curtain at the thought process that goes into developing a membership plugin, as well as insight into the sort of features that can help your site really get ahead.
