Before we get into the Membership part of your website , you need to know the difference between Pages and Posts.

Pages,like Contact Pages, Frequently Asked Question Pages etc., you can notadd a category to any Page.

Postsare used for article writing and you can add Categories to Posts.

Categoriesare very important for Membership Functionality on your site.

Part!! Setting Up the Membership Functionality on your Website.

First:Go to WP Dashboard

  • Go to Plugins> Add New> search for Paid Membership Pro> Install Now > Activate This appears on your Dashboard as Memberships

  • Go to Memberships> Pages Tab > Click top link> membership Level Tabs> Name your Level

  • When you name the level, i.e. Gold- give it a description like “ this entitles you to full access to all content on this site” or however you choose to describe this membership privilege.

  • Enter a Confirmation message, i.e. “thanks for joining our Gold Membership which entitles you to……..

  • On Dashboard go to Membership Area again> Pages Tab, click the link at top and there you’ll see al the pages created so far.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I'm using today to get caught up. Just finished this part and I have to say I am feeling pretty excited about the possibilities here. Is anyone else having some concerns about what they can offer that would warrant a fee? I struggled a bit to get my niche and now that I have one, I'm not sure if I have anything to say that's worth paying for....It's not like I am offering training or any kind of lessons, which definitely would have that kind of value.

Anyhow, I guess we'll find out in time! There's always someone willing to pay for just about anything.

Craig, if you were to have just two levels..Free and Premium and free was read-only and Premium was only $2.99 a month but allowed you to blog. If you had 250 members that would be an extra $747.50 a month.

Can you handle that? Let's start there buddy.
Reply
CraigW315 Premium
I can absolutely handle that and it's actually exactly what I have done so far. I was trying to think about how I could add more levels, but I might just leave it at that.

I was unsure of the pricing, so I put it a bit high. I believe I put $1.99 as the initial price and $4.99 recurring. As I said above, I know that there is always someone willing to pay for just about anything. I remember people buying "Bottled Farts" on Ebay. Yes, I am absolutely serious. There were also bottled ghosts....

I struggled over the past few months to set up a memberships website because I did not know this resource was available. Although my site is now set up, I will go through the training here because I am sure there is more to learn, change, or tweak. I look forward to joining the group.

Thank you for this Chris. I am currently trying to rebuild an existing website from scratch for a charity. The charity has multiple business units all doing different things and the current website has around 42 different posts and I was a bit stuck around how to rearrange everything smoothly.

I really liked your book analogy. This will help me immensely. I think I will use the different Business Divisions as Categories and then use the Parent / Child relationship to represent different tasks the charity can help people with. The different ways the charity can help people with can be fleshed out as Posts.

I think this will help the overall user experience immensely.

Thank you Chris.

Hi Chris - I'm all up to date. Set up my free membership. Ready for part 4, Monday or whenever the next one is. Hope not Sunday need some time off.
Great training Chris. Like your style, clear and enjoyable!
I took your advice and got the Sparkling FREE theme.
You said to update and pay for the Pro version of your theme so you own it fully but I can't find the pro version of Sparkling.
Is there a pro version or do I need to find another theme that has a pro version, or do I stick with the free sparkling theme cause its ok for users to use for as a membership site? I'm ok to change would just prefer to earlier than later if I need to. If I do which do you recommend?
I don't want to have to do it all over again. Want to set it up as we go. Then continue on. Hate having to redo . . . if I can help it.
Thanks, Sylvia

ChrisScott Premium
Hey, Sylvia.

Yeah, Sparkling does not have a pro version. I'm sorry about the confusion. I am a Web Designer and have conditioned myself to talk without thinking, lol.

Premium Themes are ALMOST always better but for the purposes of this exercise I chose an excellent Free Theme that works great.

Rest Assured, there will be a Pro version of it soon so keep an eye out for the upgrade as it will surely be worth it.

This is fantastic. I could listen to you all day, sir.

I am excited by this-- you're good at getting me pumped up-- but I have to admit I still feel slightly unsure of how everything is going to work. I guess I just need to be patient.

I am going to go back to part one now, because I have been watching without taking any action yet, because I couldn't think of a niche, and that was because of my not knowing how this worked, lol.

I will have the entire day to work on WA-related stuff tomorrow, so I may do parts 1-4 all together.

You got it, Craig. This time next year you’ll be the leader of a little online club. Anything from Arrowhead Collectors to Stamps to Rare Coins or like the one TammiP and I are working on.

Just need to brainstorm it out. One of my clients Markr0675 is working on a Ghost Hunting Website.

Wow, Chris, this was, once again, awesome. I am still a bit buzzed but I will watch all your videos again this is the way I learn the best and when I implement it creating my own membership website I will have your videos parallel running so I won't miss a step.

Looking forward to the next part, very exciting too :)
Thanks, for doing this

Your on a different kind of list, girly!! Lol, today was a rough day, buddy. Fought to breath all day today. Sunshine is in the kitchen fixing dinner and I’m laying down . She just checked in on me and gave me a big ole kiss and said, “how would you like a hot roll, baby?”

OMG... I hope she is talking about food!!

I am fine. I just answered your PM. Sunshine's mom need prayer. I told you in PM I sent you a PM but it was an email.

Enjoy your weekend, buddy. We have a busy day Monday.

How is Sunshine's Mom. Been praying for her. Is there a diagnosis yet?
Reply

Basil small cell or something like that. She's had a good long life but we are just not ready. She's in high spirit though. Very much at peace.
Reply
TammiP Premium
OMG!!!! Is there anything that can be done? Praying harder. You never are ready to lose a parent, even when you have months to prepare. It's the hardest thing in the world. Tell Sunshine we are praying for her too and you, that goes without saying.

Love you guys!!
