Daily and Weekly email digests are now an option at ChrisLema.com - all because I finally figured out how to get MailChimp and Gravity Forms to do a little magic.

Conductors, Courtrooms & Churches - they all face the challenge of composing a single narrative from many voices. 

Your WordPress blog may also have this challenge.

Some people suggest the only way to be generous is to expect absolutely nothing in return. I disagree.

If you're going to ask someone "What's the best WordPress membership plugin" be sure you give them enough info to answer the question for you.

Great article +Chris Lema,  I always enjoy your grounded advice with all things WordPress. Given your experience with membership plugins, I have a unique requirement for an association site I'm building:

 - Individual member (company) profiles, that members can edit themselves. The profile db, on setup, should have the ability to store additional data fields (e.g. # of employees, branch offices, logo, etc).

-  The capability to include a search form, on the public facing website, that can search member profiles based on any of the fields in their profile.

So... I was wondering if you know of any of the plugins you have tested or used would meet these needs?

Thanks Chris!

I just agreed with +Jake Goldman and the San Diego Chargers won today. 

I'm headed to buy a lottery ticket.

Generosity's first lesson isn't learning to give in small doses. It's not even about giving....
