I would like to be able to do sequential content delivery for members.
I was thinking that I could maybe do this through having multiple membership levels and incrementing the members level at a set schedule. Is this a feasible solution?
Ideally would love to automate this, but i suppose a script on server editing members membership level in database could do this??
Any ideas or comments on how best to do this would be appreciated.

Yeah you could do something like that. WodPress has an option that lets you schedule a task so you could use that functionality from your script.
We are looking into adding sequential content delivery feature into eMember but at this moment can’t give you a date.February 17, 2010 at 6:25 am #17952
I have been playing with this and it seems to be kind of workable in that I can write a SQL query to update the members membership level at a set date after joining.
One slight issue I have is being able to have “more” content on site revealed according to membership level. eg. level 1, 2, 3 A level 2 membership show 1 & 2, whilst a level 3 show 1,2 & 3 etc.
Would this be an easy modification? at the moment it appears that a level 3 can see level 3 marked content only and nothing else.

For each membership level you can specify what the members of this level and or cannot access. This approach allows a greater degree of customization option in terms of content protection.
Say for example you have two membership levels
1) Level A
2) Level B
You want the members of “Level A” to have access to posts 1,2 and 3. You want the members of “Level B” to have access to posts 1,2,3,4 and 5.
Now all you have to do is choose “Level A” from the Manage content protection menu and give access to posts 1,2,3. Then choose “Level B” and give access to posts 1,2,3,4 and 5.
Now with your script you can upgrade a member with “Membership Level A” to “Level B” and suddenly he/she will have access to posts 4 and 5 in addition to posts 1,2 and 3. Let me know if this makes sense.February 19, 2010 at 4:38 am #17954
Thanks, that does make sense. I will give it a go – although with a lot of posts / pages it could get messy to administer.
