H3S1: Customer | user accounts, AAM, content restriction: $250
Hu: WordPress does not often | clarify that user accounts, in core, are exclusively for admin, and that a third party plugin, AAM, has to be installed, to securely offer accounts as a service <x-ref WP.MIC-H2S5>. The reason is that, by default, log-in to WordPress gives users access to the wp-admin | backend, and this portal, is specifically designed | for changing, not using, your site. Instead, what you want # is for users to access content, in particular, restricted | content, and AAM-plugin allows you to do this, by differentially segregating users by roles, and attributing content, differentially, based on restriction, and differential | access, to these roles, as well as locking down files, and the WordPress | backend.
