First off: GREAT plugin, guys! I always look to your company first when looking for WP plugins.
Background info: on my WP site (which is for a non-profit arts organization), I am using the eMember plugin to restrict content viewability to 3 account types: “Staff”, “Member”, and “Prospect”. (All accounts are free accounts.) The first Membership Level that I created after installing the plugin was “Member” (as that will be the most commonly used); then I created “Staff”, then “Prospect”. In order of hierarchy, however, it goes Prospect –> Member –> Staff (lowest-to-highest).
When people sign up for access to the site now, it gives them “Member” level access by default, but I need them to be categorized as “Prospects” when they first sign up. (I will manually change accounts to “Member” as they are added to the organization.)
So, the question is: can I set “Prospect” to be the default membership type when someone signs up?
Thanks for any help you can give.December 7, 2012 at 5:38 am #52139adminKeymaster
Glad to hear you like the membership plugin too
Question: Can I set “Prospect” to be the default membership type when someone signs up?
Answer: yes, you can do that. Go to eMember settings and specify the level ID of that level in the “Free Membership Level ID” field.
Also check this post that will show you how you can place a registration form any of those 3 free levels you have:September 30, 2016 at 2:19 am #52140bob mMember
I’m having some issues getting set up properly with eMember. I’ve been going through the info and instructions but can’t seem to get it quite right. I have a couple of questions that, if answered, might help solve my Issues. I’m not providing a free membership but people sign up for a low cost 14 day trial and then pay a monthly membership fee. Members get new content each 30 days and I’m trying to set that part up on the auto upgrade feature. Here are my questions.
1) What is the default membership level? If you offer a free membership, is it Free? If you only offer a paid membership, what is the default membership level?
2) I initially set up with my join now page being on a separate WP installation than my actual membership site which has the eMember plugin installed on. In other words, I offer some free stuff but keep it on a separate WP installation. My join now page is on the WP installation with the free stuff. Then when people click the buy button (standard PP subscription), they are taken to the registration page (which is on the membership site or the site with the eMember Plugin installed and activated. Could the use of two separate site4s be causing me some problems? For example, when I try to run a test, and check out the member I have added through PP, the Membership Level is blank. My reason for making the join now page a separate page on a different installation of WP was that I have a nice looking custom join now page compared to the fairly generic looking eMember join now page. Can I customize the eMember join now page?
So this is the first site with the join now page
This is the second site with eMember installed and the protected info for paid members only. http://bizstartup101.com/privatemembers/index-of-training-sessions/
So again, the question is will having the join now page on a separate WP installation from the WP installation with eMember set up cause issues wi9th the plugin working properly?
