Is there any way of changing the order of the Membership Level dropdown menu in the Add/Edit Members screen?
Seems to be sorted by Level ID which seems to be hard-coded.November 18, 2012 at 7:05 pm #51511nurMember
no. it comes from database and its sorted in descending order of level id. that is most recently created one comes first in the list.March 19, 2014 at 2:10 am #51512
Is there a way to change the membership level IDs or reorder them?
When we were doing our testing, we were not sure of the names of the membership level, because we did not know that they were used for dripping content. Now, the level IDs are out of wack, even skipping a lot of numbers. It’s the same deal with the eMember IDs, which now start at a very high number after testing.
What I would like to do is to reset the IDs of both the eMembers and their Membership Levels before we launch. Can this be accomplished by editing the database, or would this throw everything that we have programmed already off?March 19, 2014 at 5:21 am #51513
Those ID numbers are used for internal system. You can’t change them without messing up everything else you have already setup.
Those ID numbers are something your members will never see so I am not sure why you would need them in a particular order?March 19, 2014 at 5:47 am #51514
Regarding the eMember IDs, what I wanted to do was delete all of my test members ahead of launching, and I did not want to start with ID numbers over 100 (we did a lot of tests).
Regarding the Membership Level IDs, I just wanted consecutive numbers so that we could remember the levels and make less mistakes in our permissions coding. But I can live with these IDs, I was just wondering if they could possibly be reset. Thanks for the quick response.March 19, 2014 at 7:49 am #51515
You can always drop the eMember database tables and start over (that will start those counts from the beginning).March 19, 2014 at 9:28 am #51516
Thanks. Can I drop just the eMember Membership Table (wp_wp_eMember_members_tbl) without affecting the eMember Membership Levels Table (wp_wp_eMember_membership_tbl)?
And if the eMember Membership Table is dropped, does the eMember plugin simply construct a new Membership Table when the first user registers? I just want to make sure before I do this, as there is no turning back once it’s done.
If possible, I don’t want to drop my Membership Levels Table, as my Membership Levels took a lot of work to get right, with the drip setup and all, so I’d rather not have to do that all over again.March 19, 2014 at 2:31 pm #51517wzpModerator
What you can ***TRY*** is:
- Deactivate the plugin.
- Rename wp_wp_eMember_members_tbl to bak_wp_eMember_members_tbl.
- Reactivate the plugin.
Upon reactivation, any missiing tables should be recreated. Once you are comfortable with the situation, you can then drop the renamed table.March 19, 2014 at 3:40 pm #51518
Thanks, I’ll give this a try, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll just revert back to the backed-up DB table. I’ll let you know the results.March 19, 2014 at 3:43 pm #51519wzpModerator
Yeah, I thought the renaming idea would make you feel more comfortable…June 26, 2016 at 6:39 am #51520clearscopedesignParticipant
Is there a way to change the default membership level when manually adding a new membership account?
When we add a new member manually, the membership level for the new account seems by default to be set to the most recent membership level that was created. Additionally, it seems that we cannot change the membership level or deselect it until the account has been created (we then have to save the account again after it has been created in order to be able to change the membership level).
Is there a way that the membership level can be changed while creating the new account (instead of having to create it and then save it again)?
Or is there a way that we can change what the default membership level is set to when manually creating a new account?June 28, 2016 at 4:00 am #51521
You have to pick your membership level from the dropdown. You can pick any membership level you want when you are creating a member account manually. Remember, first you need to pick the level you want from the “membership level” dropdown.
I am pretty sure you are using the multiple membership level feature and you are ignoring the membership level from the dropdown. If you ignore that selection and go directly to the “Additional Membership Levels” then it won’t let you uncheck the primary level because you have it selected in the main level. Once you pick the correct level for the user in the “membership level” dropdown, you will be able to uncheck all the other levels from the additional level section (if you need).June 30, 2016 at 12:44 am #51522clearscopedesignParticipant
Perfect – yes you are correct and we were just missing that. Sorry for the confusion and thank you!
