Project Description

I need some help with this theme, I'm developing a photography site and need a client area, so after my client has taken photo's they can email there client login details where the client can login to a page that looks like the store but is private only to them and has all there images on there available to purchase.

There are lots of plugins which allow me to restrict access but none work how I want them to work.

I'm aware of the plugin [url removed, login to view]

However i've been reading a lot up about this plugin and there's a lot of negativity around it, a lot of people are saying in forums that it doesnt work correctly...(see below)

"This plugin works for single products out of the box with the PayPal Standard gateway. However, when a customer adds more than one product to the cart, PayPal Standard only charges for the first product, not any additional ones. Tax also gets ignored, even though WP eCommerce calculates it correctly. PayPal Express processes all products correctly, including tax, but it doesn’t setup a recurring profile in PayPal – so all recurring products only get charged once"

Is there anything else I can try? I love the theme but am worried I may need to purchase an alternative which will allow for this function, I really hope not as I have spent a long time building and developing this and I am very close to finishing apart from this final thing.

I would of thought this would of been built in, as photography is a specialist trade, and lots of people who have family portraits etc, do not want other people to see there photos and so would need to be private.

I've read that the plugin is being constantly developed, and fixed and there is a major update comming in august, but i cannot wait that long.

I don't even know if this plugin will work so don't want to waste money on it. Surely there must be an alternative way of doing this.

Please have a look at my site to get better understanding of what i mean. [url removed, login to view]

If you have a look at 'my gallery' I just want a client to be able to click on their name and a login screen comes up, once they login they get to see all their own images, no one else can see their images and they cant see anyone elses and they have the opton to buy their own images.

It sounds so simple, but i am not a developer so need help with this, is this something you can help with?

I'm guessing if you are not familiar with the theme it would probably be best to have a read of the documentation first - link is here [url removed, login to view]
