What are y'all using for membership sites these days?  I have a need for a WP membership plugin with the following features:
  • Restrict content to paid members.
  • Show parts of pages to unpaid members (e.g. "upgrade to see more")
  • Recurring monthly payments for members via Stripe & Paypal.
  • Multiple tiers of membership.
Thanks,
Toby

Personally I still love Restrict Content Pro.  Even though the support sucks ever since iThemes bought it (seriously don't even bother) but the plugin is good, easy and powerful enough to be more than worth it. It is pretty simple and just has what you need, without a lot of bloat. The only place where it falls short is when you need to add custom profile fields. You have to do this with code, there isn't an interface for it. But otherwise RCP has been good and reliable. (note however that the PayPal gateway might be less than perfect. We are still looking into what might be causing our particular issues, but just thought I'd mention it)

Thanks for the recommendation, Lisa!  I hadn't heard of Membership Works, and I'll check that out.  (I checked out MemberPress this morning...)

Yeah, geez I re-read what I wrote and that was not a very convincing endorsement, was it! LOL. Seriously though I do still love it! :)
