What I have to say:
This plugin was in the schedule to be reviewed today when i also saw his name popup in Twitter via @codepotent and received another email from him while prepping for the show. Things are interesting sometimes.
This does look like a pretty interesting new membership plugin and while I might have chosen it had I discovered it a few months back when I built out a Membership site. I am not about to make a major change in a good site at this moment.
It does have a few pro addons that look to be a benefit for an active community such as the notifications. You may want to have a look at this plugin if you are building out a membership site or upgrading one.

Works great in ClassicPress
Rating 4 Dragons
ClassicPress is a fast growing fork of WordPress that is starting to come into its own. ClassicPress is focused on Business Websites runs fast and is looking pretty good. There are a few plugins specifically for ClassicPress and all plugins for WordPress 4.9.9 work well on it. I do believe it has a future.
One thing I am looking forward to in the ClassicPress World is the expansion of the number of ClassicPress specific plugins and their own repository. Currently there are not a lot of ClassicPress specific plugins but I do know it is going to grow and I’ll have to expand this segment then. Who knows, it could take over the whole show.
This week for ClassicPress I have:
Listen to the Interview with James Nylen and Michelle Coe from ClassicPress Two of the Leads for the ClassicPress Team, Michelle Coe (lead designer), and James Nylen (lead developer) it is a great interview so follow the link to listen to it.
