I have e-Member & e-Store working nicely with a 3 month “FREE” membership, whereas to gain access our prospective members take a quiz which shows them the sign up form on completion. Is there a way, after their membership expires, (using allow user sign-in with expired accounts) that i could redirect them to yet another one of our quizzes and they could hit a button (or something) that would re-activate (auto-renew) their account? (shortcode or php)
thanks!August 24, 2011 at 9:31 pm #35845
I guess i am just looking for the existing code that “if they make a paypal payment it renews their membership” so i can re-use to make it a user initiated button on a hidden page?
Again, thank you for your support and assistance. Both e-Store and e-Member are working awesome for us so far!August 25, 2011 at 1:46 am #35846
You can create a payment button and hook it to any membership level like you did for your other payment buttons. Then place this button on a page “Renew Membership” or something like that and use the URL of that page in the “Membership renewal Page” field in eMember settings.
Now your expired members will get a message that tells them to renew their membership and clicking on that message will bring them to this renew membership page where they can make a payment to reactivate their account.August 25, 2011 at 9:46 am #35847
Thanks Key Master
The member won’t make an actual payment to renew – rather just complete a quiz we have made and then “allow” access to Renew. So I was just seeing if I could us the same functionally of making a payment to renew (but really not making a payment) and tricking system to think so to renew membership. I realize we would prob need to do it via php.
Thanks again.August 26, 2011 at 12:42 am #35848
I added the following shortcode:
This shortcode displays a “Renew” button that lets the logged in user to renew his/her membership account for free. Can be helpful when you want to offer some of your special members to be able to renew without actually paying for the membership.
Get a new build from here to use this shortcode:August 26, 2011 at 2:42 am #35849
Awesome! which file(s) did you modify that added that functionality?
(just so i know when i download the new build so i can incorporate with my existing revisions)
