A month of Membership Plugins
My focus this month has been on Membership plugins for WordPress. This has given me a long list of plugins, including the ones I’ve reviewed so far:
- Membership 2 Pro
- WP eMember
- Restrict Content Pro
- WP Membership
- Cart66 Cloud
- Private Content
- Zippy Courses
- Ultimate Member
- Easy Quick Member
- WooCommerce Membership (Envato)
- Simple Membership Plugin
- Page Security and Membership
- S2Member Pro
These plugins, focusing on WordPress, are almost all licensed under a GPL license. Easy Quick Member isn’t, which I told you about and part of why it scored so low.
Today I wanted to explain why this review was kind of a non-review. Because MemberMouse isn’t GPL either.
Here’s my take on why GPL licensing matters for plugins like this.

Overall, it’s a bummer because of how awesome the feature set is.
