OptimizePress only provides a template system for our membership site, but it does not provide the actual membership site protection or member management systems for this we need to have Wishlist Member plugin.

What We Need to Make OptimizePress As Membership Site

In their training area, they have mentioned that if we are planned to use OptimizePress as a membership site template, they recommend using either the Wishlist Member plugin for WordPress.

The Wishlist Member plugin can be integrated with OptimizePress membership templates. Along with Wishlist Member can offer special features like the below list,

For the most important part, all we need to make our WordPress site work and function as a membership site using the two elements listed below.

Why we need OptimizePress? Why not just membership plugin enough?

Simple. Membership plugin used to get the functionality of the membership site in ordinary WordPress site. But OptimizePress makes the membership site a cleaner look and proper content delivery to the different membership levels.
