Well I was more thinking of a general automatic protection of a complete forum. Editing each new topic is not quite practical I guess.
any ideas on that?
This works great, thanks.
One thing left: The styling is now gone, the manual checkout looks like a normal form. No borders, no spacing, no width 100%
Well I tried your solution Zain, but still… don’t really like this “workaround”.
Nobody else knows how to empty the cart via shortcode? I also might use the function itself via the “Shortcode Exec PHP” plugin.
Just need a little hint – please
thanks for your thoughts. I already tried that option before, looks like a nice way to use eMember, but unfortunately not for me: it excludes bonuscodes and/or coupons and we absolutely need that. Coupons are only usable with a cart, not with subscriptions or one-click-payments like you mentioned.
So we are basically back to we started I suppose. Any way to clear the cart via a shortcode? Maybe create a custom one? there should be a function for that, I guess…
How about creating a shortcode for the “empty cart” button that you already have? That might do the job… Where do I find the function and how could I add a shortcode for that? I guess I am not the only one who would be interested in that…
Thanks again for your support.
Really that tough to understand? Damn, gotta work on my explanation skills.
Ok, here we go:
Some customers tend to click on one membership item (item “A”) on the “choose your membership” site, but then they change their mind. Right before they have to enter their accouting number on the manual checkout – they think about it again, and leave the page before checkout (item “A” still in cart) and click some other pages on our site.
After some time they realize “Damn, I really want this membership – but the one I chose was too expensive / too long / not right for me / whatever. I will choose a different one”.
So they go back to “Choose your membership” (item “A” still in cart, but they don’t see that, since this appears to be a membership site, not an estore) and click on “Buy Membership B”.
On the second page they see: Item “A” is in the cart, not the one they just clicked – together with “Only one item allowed!”… Confusion.
-> We have just destroyed the momentum of their willingness to finally buy our membership “B”. This I would like to avoid.
So it would be great if I could empty the cart once a membership item is chosen – to make sure that no “older” item is still in the cart.
Does this make sense now? Would be great if you had a solution for this.
Thanks in advance. All the best,
Well, the idea was not bad… but it didn’t really do what I wanted.
Now my customers would need to 1) realize that the wrong item is in the cart, even though they clicked another one, 2) click “empty the cart”, 3) click “go back” and 4) chose the right membership option again.
From experience, every click loses a customer, so I would like to reduce that if possible.
Is there a way to empty the cart automatically with a click?
Right now, I use
[wp_eStore_add_to_cart id=1]. Is it possible to combine this click with clearing the cart before adding that item?
That would be perfect.
I did some testing if it was due to some of the plugins or changes that I made, but WP and eMember keep being out of sync. I even setup a new WP installtion with emember, still the same. In the WP User Untegration Setting, all three options are checked.
I tried the following steps:
1. Login via WP (ok)
-> I am also logged into eMember
-> After Logout via WP admin bar I am also logged out of eMember
2. Login via eMember widget (not ok)
-> NOT logged into WP! (see comments area: “You must be logged in to add a comment”)
3. Login via WP, close browser, open the site again (not ok)
-> Not logged into WP (ok)
-> Still logged into eMember (not ok)
This tells me, that it cannot be a session time issue, otherwise I would also still be logged into WP, right? Plus I am still logged into emember after hours.
To reproduce that, goto:
EDIT: I have no caching plugins installed
Ok, I figured out it is not a problem with logging in or not, or with the facebook plugin. When I log in, close the browser and then open the site again, I am logged out by wordpress, but the membership level inside of eMember is still active.
I create an empty site with
You are not logged in
[emember_protected for=2 do_not_show_restricted_msg=1]
You are a Level 2 Member
[emember_protected for=3 do_not_show_restricted_msg=1]
You are a Level 3 Member
When I visit this site the first time, I get “You are not logged in”. After I log in with a level 2 member, I get “You are a Level 2 Member”. So far so good.
After closing and opening the browser again (new sessioin id), I am not logged into WordPress (or Buddypress) anymore – as it should be.
But if I go to my testpage, I get “You are a Level 2 Member” again – as it shouldn’t be.
What can I do?
Since it is a membership site, it should be only one item to buy… If the user choses a different membership, the cart shouldn’t contain two memberships.
