Member page access?

  1. I am new to Word Press and have a questions.

    Basically I am wondering if it possible to have a member section on my website where I would add users so they can access a member only page.

    I am trying to develop a section page where there would be different sub-categories accessible only to certain members that I add.

    How would I do this? Do I need a plugin for this?

    Thank you for your help!

  2. We do not have plug-ins at wordpress.com. We run on different software than wordpress.org does. If you have a wordpress.org blog we cannot help you here. You must go to http://wordpress.org/support

    If yours is a wordpress.com blog please read on. You have used the word "page" and the word "sub-categories". Pages and posts are quite different from each other. You cannot assign categories to pages. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/11/11/a-post-and-a-page/

    The following list covers the full range of possibilities including options that allow others to both read password protected posts and to post on your blog.

    (1) On wordpress.com blogs we can have password protected posts http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/10/23/post-options-post-password/

    (2) And we can password protect whole blogs http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/can-i-password-protect-my-whole-blog/

    (3) We can add users/authors to wordpress.com blogs http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/17/how-do-i-add-more-authors-users-to-my-blog/
    If so then the role we choose to give them is an important consideration
