If you have a support issue, or need to contact the Support Team or Dev Team, please click the ‘Support’ tab in the site’s main navigation. Support tickets help us more efficiently track and keep a record of your requests.


Before starting a support ticket, please see if one of the following common questions might help.

>> So, how does this plugin work?

When you create a new Client/Member via the WP-Client interface, the plugin goes to work.  The Client/Member’s HUB Page is created. A HUB page is the central component of the WP-Client system – it serves as the main dashboard for the Clients/Members while they are logged into the Portal area. The HUB contains whatever content you need to present, including the option to dynamically display resources or links to resources that are permissioned to the logged in Client/Member, either by individual assignment, or by Circle affiliation.

These are the first building blocks to this Cient/Member’s portal, and as you add/subtract components, they are dynamically added/subtracted from the Client/Member’s HUB.

Essentially, WP-Client gives you the architecture and permissions control to create almost any structure that your application requires with full granular control over privacy & permissions.

>> Do you have a DEMO setup that I can try?

Our policy is to not have a live demo because it requires so much time to monitor public activity ( people writing foul language & basically acting like hooligans ), and would open the door for a user with bad intentions to run malicious code from our servers, etc… We could go to the trouble of disabling certain functionalities to prevent this, but then the demo would not be fully representative of our product.
 
We do have a very descriptive Demo Video that attempt to cover the major functionalities of WP-Client, and this video is continually updated as we add new features.
 
Click here to view the Demo Video and Screenshots: http://wp-client.com/demo-video-secure-wordpress-client-portal-file-sharing/
 
We feel our money back guarantee give you a no-risk opportunity to test drive WP-Client in its’ fully functional form.

>> Is it possible to upgrade my license level later, or do I have to make this choice now?

Upgrading between packages is no problem.  Simply login to your Control Panel and you will have an option to “Upgrade” your existing license, and you will only pay the difference in price between the license levels.

For example, if you originally purchased the Basic License ($59), and you wanted to upgrade to the Plus License ($119), you would only pay $60 to receive the upgrade.

>> Is WP-Client going to be compatible with my theme?

Simple answer is Yes! 
 
There is very rarely a theme that will present a conflict, but it’s usually something that is easily remedied by our Dev Team.
 
One of the great things about WordPress is how many different developers and ideas are out there in the fields of themes & plugins, but it also sometimes presents a challenge. Conflicts with themes and plugins do happen, but they are usually fairly easily solved.
 
In the off-case that you do experience issues, our Support Team is ready to assist you with a solution.

>> Does WP-Client work with WP Multisite?

WP-Client will work on Multisite installations, but does not share users, files, HUBs or Portal Pages across the entire network.  For example, if you create a client on Site B, that client will not be able to also login with the same capabilities at Site C.  However, with WP-Client installed on Site B, the plugin will function as intended on Site B only, just like it would on a normal standalone installation of WordPress.

Each unique URL that contains a site ( alpha.maindomain.com, brava.maindomain.com, charlie.maindomain.com ) will need to be entered separately in your Control Panel in order to install on that URL. Meaning, a Single Site WP-Client license does not automatically entitle every site on a multi-site network to install/use WP-Client.

>> I want to develop on one URL, and then move to another URL – Possible?

If you purchase a Basic License, you will be given permission to authorize 2 domains, which will permit you to have one development domain and one production domain.

So, when you are ready to license the production URL, just navigate to your Control Panel and add your new domain. 


 

Mark as helpful. 5

>> How do I license my site if it’s on a subdomain?

When licensing the plugin for your site, you will want to enter any subdomains into the Control Panel.  For example, take the follow URLs:

  • http://www.domain.com
  • http:/sub.domain.com

The first would be entered into the Control Panel as “domain.com” (without the quotes).  The second, however, would be entered as “sub.domain.com” (without the quotes).  This is an important distinction that needs to be understood in order for the plugin to be activated successfully.

>> Is there a way to hide or change the name of the plug in?

Yes, the WP-Client White Label License Level gives you the power to completely “re-brand” the plugin to your business. All references to WP-Client can be removed and replaced with your company’s logo and information.

This License Level is meant for developers who are creating sites for clients and want to carry their branding, or their client’s branding across the entire platform.

>> What is White Label?

The WP-Client White Label License Level gives you the power to completely “re-brand” the plugin to your business. All references to WP-Client can be removed and replaced with your company’s logo and information.

This License Level is meant for developers who are creating sites for clients and want to carry their branding, or their client’s branding across the entire platform.

With White Label, you are able to:

  • Change all references to WP-Client
  • Disable/Replace the WP-Client logo
  • Change the name/icon in dashboard sidebar
  • Hide the About tab in Settings

>> How can a client update their profile information themselves?

Simply set the correct “Capabilities” in WP-Client settings ( See HERE ) for the client to “View Profile” and “Edit Profile”, and they can then access their Client Profile page and edit/update the information at their discretion. You can also assign the capability for your client to be able to change their password, which is done on the Client Profile page as well.

>> How do I allow Clients to register themselves?

First, be sure that you have Client Registration set to Yes -http://screencast.com/t/QofemmgE 

Second, be sure that you’re logged out of the site

Third, use this link: http://yourdomain.com/portal/client-registration (Replace yourdomain.com with your URL)

You can also use this link in any navigation item to allow clients to register themselves

>> Is it possible to have a separate login page, instead of “domain.com/wp-admin”?

Yes, by default WP-Client creates a login page, usually located at “domain.com/portal/login-page”.  This page, usually called “Login Page”, can be renamed, and the permalink can be changed to reflect the URL you want. Also, the “domain.com/wp-login.php” page can be renamed to whatever you like in WP-Client settings, and “domain.com/wp-admin” can be blocked so that your clients do not see that page. See here: http://screencast.com/t/LZP4iZc0ikI

>> How many clients can I have?

Theoretically, there would be no maximum to the limit of clients.

Since WP-Client uses WordPress as the architecture on which it functions, the maximum number of users is the exact same maximum number of users that WordPress can support, which in theory is unlimited.

Of course, the resources of your server and your database etc. will eventually cause a limit to be reached, but that number is huge and it is highly unlikely that you’ll ever go there.

>> Upon login, my client sees the WordPress dashboard instead of their HUB page

Please check your Permalinks settings, and if not already, please change to “Post Name”

See video – http://screencast.com/t/oFv7MmcNGb

Even if they are set to “Post Name”, go ahead and re-save to reset.

Also, be sure the setting “Hide dashboard/backend” is set to “Yes” - http://screencast.com/t/qUFazr2pn1BF

>> If I Develop on a subdomain before my main domain, how many licenses do I need?

Whenever licensing WP-Client for your website, you will want to include the main domain, as well as any subdomains. For example, “test.example.com” would need to licensed separately from “example.com”. Also, remember that your licensed domains can be changed at any time in your Control Panel.

>> Can standard WordPress posts/pages be protected using WP-Client?

Yes! This can be accomplished using the Private Post Types Extension.

>> Is it possible to have different Client Groups/Categories, with 2 different HUB Pages?

Yes! This can be accomplished using multiple HUB Templates. Simply create the 2 distinct HUB Templates that you would like to use, and then assign the appropriate Clients/Members to their corresponding HUB Templates. Alternatively, if your Clients/Members are part of 2 different Circles (for example: “Customers” and “Suppliers”), you can assign the HUB Template directly to the appropriate Circle.

>> Is WP-Client going to be compatible with my site?

WP-Client is fully tested and compatible with the latest version of WordPress, and the powerful customization features allow you to easily integrate WP-Client into the look/feel of your current design using tools/interfaces that you’re already familiar with.  It’s as easy as it can possibly be.

>> Can the Portal Pages contain videos?

Yes, you can embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo or any other streaming service… and those videos would be protected. Or, if you have the entire video uploaded to your server, you could display that as well.

You can display, embed or post any content on WP-Client Portal Pages that you can display, embed or post on a standard WordPress page/post.

>> I need to share very large files, but want to upload by FTP or store in another location

Yes, you can use the External File Component.

http://screencast.com/t/i3XfZ6FOovOd

Simply enter the direct URL for the file into the field for URL, and then you can assign it to the proper client(s) or group(s)

Then, the client(s) or group(s) who have been permissioned will see the file title/link in their list of available files, and be able to download from there.

>> When a client logs in, do they use the standard WordPress login panel?

When a client logs in, they are using the standard WordPress login, and WP-Client allows you to customize the logo and colors to match your site’s design. Additionally, you may use the WP-Client widget in your sidebar or other widget area, and that permits a client to login. Another option would be to create your own page to facilitate login, and use the provided login shortcode to display a login form.


 

Mark as helpful. 8

>> When a client clicks a file from their HUB page does is automatically download ?

Depends on the file, and it depends on which browser they are using, but if clicking the file directly doesn’t trigger the download,  the client can always right click and select ‘Save target as…’ or ‘Save file as…’, then the file can be downloaded to their PC.

>> Can the admin create different sections/projects for each client?

You can create as many clients as you like, and each one can have one or multiple pages that are permissioned exclusively to them.  So, the answer is definitely yes.

In addition, Portal Pages & Files can be permissioned according to group affiliation, thus enabling you to add a client and assign them a standard set of permissions simply by adding them to a particular group.


 

Mark as helpful. 3

>> Can I create more than one page for my client(s)?

Yes, no problem!  You can create as many pages as you like and assign it to one or more clients or staff members.  As an example, if you had an instructional screencast video that was only applicable to some of your clients or staff members, but not others, you would create a ‘Portal Page’ and use the interface to select which clients/staff would have access to that page with the video on it.  Those clients/staff would then see the hyperlink to that page appear on their HUB pages.

You can add/delete client/staff permissions for each page any time.

>> How do I customize my client/staff HUB Pages?

Simply use the HUB Page Template feature, and build your template to match your existing site. The dynamic output of the plugin is delivered via shortcodes, so you are able to place the shortcodes anywhere you like inside the template, thus allowing you the ultimate in customization possibilities.

Additionally, with our EZ HUB feature, you can make changes to the HUB Page Template at any time, and the changes will reflect on all of your existing client HUBs. Detailed blog post here: http://wp-client.com/wp-client-v-3-3/

>> How do I create private photo gallery or galleries for my clients or staff?

Simply create a new Portal Page and then use that page to display your gallery/galleries.  You can use any existing gallery plugin that you are familiar with by simply inserting the shortcode(s) into the pages created by the plugin.  The plugin even supports nested shortcodes.


 

Mark as helpful. 2

>> Can I make this a one-way system, where clients can download files but not upload?

Yes, you can easily disable the client upload section – it’s as easy as removing a simple shortcode from the template.  Navigate to the hub page for that client, or the hub page template, and remove the <uploadf></uploadf> shortcodes. (The <> tags replace the [] brackets here)
