I need to create a small members area, probably for about 1000 users, not more.
I want to set private information there, forms, interaction, etc.
More in particular it'll be for "providers" of my business and I want them to access important notes about my business and them upload tariffs/rates, etc.
I do not want the users to publicly register themselves. I will manually add the users after talking with them and let them they have access.
I'm not talking about the "word-press native users that will be able to edit pages".
I fact I don't want them to be able to access "any" of the admin-panel parts, even do not login via the "wp-admin login form".
Does wordpress support "consumer-users" natively? Or I must do it by means of a plugin?
