Hi, has everyone tried to use Gridbox functionalities to create a membership-based blog?

I would like to allow visitors to register to the website and then have access to otherwise restricted articles. Like a blog section that requires the users to be logged in to visualize the articles.

Is it possible? If so, how would you do it? Would you use Zero App or the Store App?

I am trying to get rid of many plugins as possible to use Gridbox only and this is one of the few things I still do without Gridbox. Hope it is possible to do it using Gridbox, if so, please share your experience/suggestion.

And Thanks in advance!

Hi Giuseppe,

Yes, sure it's can be done with a Gridbox Store App - Memberships and subscriptions

1. You need to create a specific Joomla User Group
2. For your blog posts set to access only for created user group
3. In Gridbox Store App create a product with a type subscription and in the Subscription Action set access to Joomla User Group - select created user group (step 1)
