Ultimate Member is a powerful membership plugin for WordPress, which allows quick development of a membership website with membership only sections and restricted content. The core plugin is available for free, while several premium extension plugins are offered for sale separately or as a package that expands Ultimate Member’s functionality. The following summarizes Ultimate Member’s key features.

Ultimate Member provides the ability to add user registration and user login pages to your WordPress website within a matter of minutes. The registration form can be customized to collect additional custom fields of data when registering on the site. “Out of the box” Ultimate Member’s registration and login forms are clean and aesthetically pleasing in appearance meshing well with most WordPress themes.

The Ultimate Member user profile page gives users the ability to add a profile photo, a cover image, and add a bio. The customizable profile form allows the creation of multiple types of custom fields to collect and display additional member data. Members can find and view each others profile page via an easy to implement membership directory page. Member profile pages use a permalink system so a user can share their link with others.

In addition to the main functionality above, several other features are available in the free core Ultimate Member plugin. Such as, access control is to restrict pages or posts so only logged in users can see them. A further level of content restrictions is available using Ultimate Member’s user roles to create multiple levels of user accounts with their own set of user permissions. Navigation menu visibility settings allow for menu items to be seen or not seen depending on whether someone is “logged in” or “logged out” of their account.

In addition to the free Ultimate Member plugin, over two dozen extension plugins are available for purchase to provide additional functionality and third-party integration. These Ultimate Member extensions include Unsplash, Instagram, and WooCommerce integration. Additional social media features are available using the Friends, Followers, Private Messages, Real-Time Notifications, Groups, and Social Activity plugins.
