Hi All,
I haven't been to the forums in ages, but am returning to my site after many years of absence to breath some new life into it. Some of that new life involves a new membership area. It's basically a place for patients check in with me and have access to my health courses. So, I'd like a very simple forum and a way to offer courses. I don't need too much automation in terms of the membership, as it will be a manageable group of people. I'd like to have password access and I'd just do the subscription with Paypal. I've been overwhelmed by this before and quit, so I'm looking for simple with no bells and whistles. Cheeers! Amelia

Hi Amelia.

Welcome back!

You're right. Membership software is not easy to set up, and not that easy to use either. I've set up a few aMember Pros for SBI! Pros customers, and it's definitely not easy.

If no one has any recommendations for you here, you might be able to find one you like in this list:

Hi Amelia,

I've helped someone set up Ning (ning.com). It didn't seem to be too difficult at the time. I checked out while I was there and thought it was really good. I've not used it myself, though, so I don't know all the pros and cons. They have a free trial so you can check it out.

I hope that helps,
Laura

I remember researching this and it was discussed quite a bit a while back ...

These links have ideas, recommendations and even the philosophy of forums if it's worth it as well as alternatives :
