I'm helping build a WordPress site for a client, and they've let me know that they want to offer trial subscriptions for their site (they run on a subscription-based model - everything but the homepage is locked down until a subscriber logs in; this log-in system is managed by WordPress by default, along with a role-management plugin for barring users from seeing pages without having the right privileges). They need process a lot of trial orders every day (the ordering system is manual - they take orders from clients by phone), which means they'll need to invalidate or delete a lot of trial usernames and passwords every day.
I've been searching for a WordPress plugin that would allow them to automatically invalidate trial users (based on roles, perhaps) after, say, a week, but so far, nothing has come up. Is there any sort of functionality (either by default, or through a plugin or script) that would allow me to automate the process? The one helpful link I found is a question on StackOverflow (Auto Delete WordPress Users According to Time since Registering) that suggests a running a script that removes users from the database through
cron; however, the site is running on a managed Windows server (IIS 6.0), so I don't have access to
Is there anything I can do, short of recommending hiring a plugin developer to write something for them?
