I apologize if this topic has been addressed elsewhere in the forums but I searched and cannot find it.
I am using WP eMember to run a small non-profit site. We don’t sell anything but almost all of the content needs to be protected (we require registration and manually approve each new member, using the eMember plugin).
My question is:
Is there a way to make it so that each time an-already-registered-and-approved member goes to LOG IN, they HAVE to check a box, and next to the box it would say something like, “By using this site, I agree to these terms and conditions” (and have “terms and conditions” be a LINK to NON-PROTECTED terms and conditions that they are saying they’ve now read and agree to)? In other words, they MUST check the box EACH TIME before the system will let them log in even though they already entered their username and password. That is what I need.
Hope I am explaining this clearly. Thank you SO much for any detailed help on this!December 2, 2011 at 2:15 am #39076adminKeymaster
You probably don’t need to make the user agree to the terms and conditions every time they log in. A more common practice is to make them agree to the terms and conditions when they register/sign up for the membership. Anyway, if you want to make members agree to terms and conditions before logging in you can probably just do the following:
1) Place your eMember login shortcode
2) Then place some text that reads like the following below the shortcode:
By logging in you agree to the terms and conditions
So basically on your login page you place something like the following (you can make the terms and conditions keyword a link):

I actually DO need to make them agree (for reasons I won’t go into here because they’re irrelevant). Thank you *very* much for the help! On my way now to try to implement it.December 2, 2011 at 9:55 pm #39078
Just to update my post in case anyone comes along someday and wants to know. I had NO problem adding the (new to me) shortcode to the registration form after I upgraded the plugin, and the upgrade went fine too. Thank you again for all your help!
