Yes! The plugin works regardless of what theme is in use. We recommend the GeneratePress library of premium themes for best compatibility and speed. The WildApricot Press add-ons work inside the block editor.
Of course that is possible and the intent of NewPath WildApricot Press. You can use the restrict access custom messages and access control by membership level(s) and group(s) to restrict access to one or more pages or posts and organize them under menus. When visitors try to access the pages for which they don’t have access they will be greeted by the global or custom restriction messages.
With our WildApricot Press iframe addon you can use the block editor to insert a WildApricot iframe gadget anywhere on a WordPress page or post. WildApricot Press takes care of the sign-on process and accepts WildApricot member credentials and sync’s the user data into WordPress. Then using a session cookie it presents that authentication to a WildApricot gadget. This allows the data to be prefilled with the contact/member data even though the WildApricot gadget is in a WordPress page.
In the near future, NewPath will create native experiences that will eliminate the need for iframes and allow more flexibility for membership applications, event registrations, donations and online store experiences that sync with WildApricot directly via the WildApricot API.
