The Expandable Paywall was developed to be a go to solution for anyone looking to implement a paywall solution to their
website. The core plugin has a simple hard paywall and uses the native WordPress authentication. Additional premium add-ons
can be installed which will expand the functionality for various paywall types, authentication types, and reporting.
- Activate the plugin through the
Pluginsmenu in WordPress
- Browse to Admin->Expandable Paywall
- You can find out more on how to install by visiting https://pramadillo.com/documentation/expandable-paywall/
Do you offer installation and customization services?
Yes, if you need help with installation and/or would like additional customization work done for your website, you can fill out a request form at https://pramadillo.com/support
I wish this plugin had XZY feature
While I try to do my best to incorporate new features all the time, I implemented a new Feature Request board located at https://pramadillo.com/feature-requests
