Thank you all for your experiences, advice, and suggestions. Although Moodle is a great resource, and as a teacher I’m prone to go with the Ed crowd; however, now I realize the time involved could be better spent elsewhere. Time spent going deeper into WP and its plugins helps all my WP sites, so starting that process over with Moodle would definitely be a time-suck for me without additional value or ROI. I’ve got all kinds of “templates” on my hard-drive that have gone unused because they demand their own site or a site NOT WP. I’m a cookie cutter kinda gal… with only so much time… so I’m def going to X out Moodle for now.
And Seth, I checked out and downloaded Paid Memberships Pro, the free version, to doodle around with to see how that would work. Omg, it’s jammed pack with everything I need… it seems. I’m just window-shopping right now, but the way it integrates with whatever site I’m working on and whatever theme I want to use is a big help, as I don’t want to change the templates I’m working with, as I like being able to change them out when something better comes along. PMP, being a WP plugin, fits into my cookie cutter plans very well. Plus, it integrates with BuddyPress. Oh, goody.
Not clear on how their paid upgrades work, what they include or the benefits to upgrading, but I guess I can figure that out in time.
And Seth, I got a great chuckle out of your friend’s online Rap. I thought it was a poem, since I skipped the video first, but had to laugh again when I saw him rap on tape. Too funny… web developer and a cool dude wordsmith to boot!
I’ll bookmark this thread, in case I have more questions about this.
Thanks, everyone for your varied input. You’ve been a big help and timesaver for me!
