Hello, wonder if anyone can help me with this. My site [http://www.guitarandmusicinstitute.com] has two levels… FREE & a paid area called PRO-ZONE
I am looking to edit pages that are in the PRO ZONE with those pages public and ticked for that membership level that has been set up. The problem is that when I go into my admin profile and set “ACTIVE” and save, when eMember goes back to all the members page, my admin account has “INACTIVE” on it…how do I over ride this and get full access to all my paid pages (which will be live) without having to pay to access my own site! LOL

Create a non expiring, “Admin” membership level and assign yourself to it. You can create a membership level that has access to everything and doesn’t expire. Only your user account will be assigned to that level.
Then assign the “Admin” level to all your protected content so your account can see themMarch 27, 2014 at 11:48 am #61859
Hi thanks for getting back so quickly. I created an admin membership option and used “administrator” in the type of account and added the two other levels but still can’t seem to see the PRO ZONE material.
Could you give me a bit more detail on how to do this specific task please?
Thanks in advance WZP.

You have to grant the “admin” membership level access to every page & post.March 27, 2014 at 4:41 pm #61861
seems to be working now, thank you for your help as always.July 22, 2014 at 7:37 pm #61862ramonaParticipant
I think it should be easier for an (super) administrator to see all content. Could you please implement (in one of the next versions) a field (or sth. like that) for the admin on the settings page so that is not necessaary to create an admin level?
Thank you in advance.July 22, 2014 at 7:45 pm #61863
The existing system allows for the greatest flexibility. There are “real life” situations in which excusion of the WordPress admin from the eMember content is desirable.
Also, when you are setting up protection for various pages (while logged in as an admin), you want to see how the protected pages will look like to other users.
If everything is open to the admin by default then the users who like the above option will lose that functionality.
