I saw your Wp eMember Demo site and in the site on the Join us page the makers of the site had a product that was for the Free membership. The join now button was placed in the free membership level product and when clicked on redirected to the registration page. I tried to set up this exact thing up and was able to produce the product, placed it on the Join us page and was able to put the image of the Join now button in the product. However when I click upon the Join now button instead of going to the registration page it automatically goes to the Pay Pal page.
How do I direct this membership level to the registation page inside of the product instead of going to the Pay Pal page as the makers were demostrating in their Demo site?
Lost and confusedNovember 15, 2011 at 4:39 am #38493
It appears that you’ve used the “Join Now” button image as the buy now image in your eStore product configuration which is why you are being directed to the PayPal page.
I’m not sure I fully understand what you are trying to achieve. Can you please elaborate on the exact scenario?November 15, 2011 at 4:54 am #38494
What I am basically trying to duplicate is the presentation that is on the WP eMember Demo Site’s Join Us page. (http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/eMember-demo/members-home/join-us) I want multiple levels of membership, one Free an others paid. I want to keep the page clean and looking neat so I want all of the memberships set up in the same product format.
Thank youNovember 15, 2011 at 5:18 am #38495
Ok now I understand.
What you have to do is ensure that you have filled in the “Button Redirect Target URL” in your eStore product configuration page. Make sure that this URL is the actual URL of your registration page.November 15, 2011 at 5:44 am #38496
I already tried to do that and it didn’t work. I just tried it again and I must be doing something wrong because it still did not work. I went to My registration page copied the Permalink (http://bestfriendtraining.com/?page_id=6) then went to Wp eStore Manage products page and selected the edit link on my free membership product
ID Image Product Name Price Download Link Sales Count Available Copies Edit/delete
2 Free Membership .00 0
I then clicked on the
Additional Product Details (Click to Expand)
and went to the
Button Redirect Target URL
I placed my copied permalink in the box and then scrolled down to the save product button and clicked on it.
the (Product “Free Membership” updated.) appeared in a yellow banner on the top of the page.
I Then went to my website and navigated to my Join in page pressed the join now button and was redirected to Pay Pal
Under the Button Redirect Target URL Box are the words
Only use this if you want the Add to Cart button for this product to go to the specified URL above (example: a landing page, sales page) instead of adding the product to the shopping cart. Useful when you are selling/promoting product of others.
The button I changed was the Buy Now button I didn’t have an Add to Cart Button in the product.
I changed this by placing the link to my image (http://bestfriendtraining.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/join-now-button-image.gif) in the Button Image URL directly above the Button Redirect Target URL.
Did I miss a step? What now?November 15, 2011 at 6:37 am #38497
A common mistake is when people enter the wrong product ID in their shortcode.
Take a note of your Product ID for the “Free Membership” product and make sure you are entering that value in your eStore shortcode.November 15, 2011 at 6:55 am #38498
Firstly can you please tell me which shortcode you are entering to represent the Free Membership product? (I have a feeling you might be using the “Buy now” shortcode [wp_eStore_buy_now_fancy id])
Try deleting your current shortcode and enter the following one:
Furthermore, you appear to have entered a price of “.00”. Can you please change this to 0.00.
Also when I look at your button’s HTML/CSS code it appears that you haven’t entered the registration page URL in the “Button Redirect Target URL” field. Try entering the URL again and then please make sure that you click the “Save Product” button after you make your configuration changes.November 15, 2011 at 9:09 am #38499
This solved the problem.
I had the wrong short code on the Join Us page. I had
[wp_eStore_buy_now_fancy id=2] when I changed it to [wp_eStore_fancy1 id=2] the problem resolved.
I also changed the price from .00 to 0.00 thank you for that tip
