Thanks for the reply. It sounds like we might be trying to do something similar, I think lol
The thing I’m a little confused about (which maybe I wouldn’t be confused if I had a blog up!) is using a theme with pre-built ecommerce functionality. I’ve installed eStore on my friends blog and really like it. But, the theme(s) mentioned above would save me days of CSS and WP hacking! lol
I’ve got loads of WooThemes and I too own Artisteer but what I’m wondering is about being able to use eMember with a theme that already has an eCommerce function built in. Those themes above already have a “join” or “login” section so I guess I could somehow disable that part of the theme??
I see you’re attempting 2 levels of membership. Ultimately I’d like that too where someone can join at a lower entry fee and lower monthly fee to use my themes/templates for personal use and a higher entry fee/monthly fee for a developer’s license.
Either level would allow a paid member to download everything on the site…or most things anyway.
I was thinking, I could have a page ie domain.com/product1/ and that’s what the non-member public can see to view the products (thumbnails) and when they pay to join, they see something like domain.com/members/product1 therefore it’s an entirely different page on the site. Is that how eMember works anyway?
If so, (Amin/Ivy/Tink) can I have them pay after directing them to the member signup page?
For example, someone at my domain.com/product1/ page decides to join. Instead of having a “buy this specific product” link, like eStore or the themes above, there’s a link/button that says “become a member” so before they’re even able to purchase they must become a member or at least choose their desired level of membership first.
When they click “become a member”, instead of just a login page, they have to select which option they’d like, ie “Personal Rights Membership” and “Developer’s License Membership” and after they select the level (radio button?) they are then redirected to paypal (or whatever), pay, then are redirected back to create their username, password.
Would that work? Please keep in mind, I’m seriously considering using one of the ecommerce (built in) themes above due to time constraints.
Thanks and I hope my questions are too confusing!
