Wellcome to part 1 of this two-part show where I will show you how to create a full member page by the combination of MemberPress and Divi. Follow me as I show you how to set up your member page with everything you need to sell an on-line course or course products, plus customized enrollment pages, e-mail alerts, and three membership stages that drain your site's contents over an extended timeframe.
I' ll also show you how to create your member pages using membership links in conjunction with the Divi-Builder. The ability to create a member page with Divi is an invaluable ability. It' s an amazing undertaking to combine the efficiency of Divi with the efficiency of an easy-to-use membership plug-in.
Many parts are movable and connected to a membership page, some of which are often ignored in online learning guides. My aim in this guide is to show you how to create a member page with Divi. Let me give you detailed information on how to set up a member page with MemberPress.
I' d like to show you how you can create your member site by reducing the inherent styling constraints often associated with integrating membership plug-ins with Divi Builder. Or in other words, I want to show you how to use Divi Builder as often as possible to create your member page.
This first part of the two-part serie will guide you through setting up the features and frameworks of your member site. I' ll show you how to set up MemberPress, what pages you need and what features you need to build free membership, paying membership, different membership tiers, dropping contents, e-mailing and more.
It' going to cost us two contributions to get there, but the end product will be a full member page created with Divi: What you need for this tutorial: I' d wait with the styling until you have all the features available. Your page listing will vary according to your particular member page.
However, for the avoidance of doubt, I will offer my introductory session on how to build a member site that provides both free and paying on-line training. First of all, make the following pages so that you have them available. Sites needed for a member site that provides an on-line course.
Membership page - Contains a synopsis of all products/courses/memberships on your membership page with a call to trade on the price page. Price list - Contains information about all membership offers and rates. Every membership should have a call to actions that directs them to the Member Register page. Member Course Sitemap - This is a page that gives an idea of a course you are running with a specific membership.
Unit page - this page should contain all the contents for a unit for a particular course. It should be a subpage of the membership course overview page. Register page(s) - Make a register page for each membership you have. I' m going to make three membership stages (Free, Silver, Gold) for this step, so I would suggest to make one page for each membership stage.
Accounts page - This page is used to administer all member information for a specific member. MembersPress can build an accounts page for you. It would be better, however, to set up your own accounts page so that we can use the Divi Builder to customise the page for you.
Log on page - A member registers on the login page to gain full control of their member area. To use Divi Builders to design your site, you need to build your own login page instead of creating one with MemberPress. thank-you page - A standard thank you page is required for MemberPress to forward user after registering.
You' probably going to need several thank-you pages corresponding to each of the memberships you will be offering. The Checkout Page - you do not have to generate this page, it is generated by MemberPress automatic. Once you have the MemberPress plug-in up and running, you can begin MemberPress configuration by going to MemberPress > Options from your WordPress dashboard.
On the Pages page you have to specify which pages you want to use for the pages reserved by MemberPress (thank you page, accounts page and logon page). Group and member page snails are okay, but you can modify them if you want. Here you can adjust the basic slot for your group and member pages.
For example, you can group your membership together to present it in the automatically created price chart shown on the group page. I' m not going to use group pages for this tutorial just because I want to use Divi Builder to show price charts for my membership.
Each time a visitor encounters a page for which they do not have permission, MemberPress displays a standard MemberPress notification that can be adjusted in the MemberPress options. My suggestion would be to include a kind of call for actions linking the users to the enrolment document or price list, which would make the users have recourse to this particular type of information.
I' m not going to go through all the available choices here, but they're quite self-explanatory. In any case, under Register, activate the default WordPress registry sheet. In my view, this rather simplifies the enrolment and logon processes. Use this by posting members who are currently registered to their accounts page, course or other contents for which they have registered.
It is also possible to overwrite the standard logon redirection roll for each membership you created. If you are creating a membership, search for the Membership Option field at the bottom of the Edit Membership page and click the Extended page. Here you can specify a standard redirection of the sign-in for this particular membership.
This way, if you have more than one membership, you don't have to put them all on the same page when they sign up. They are useful for on-line classes, so you can submit them to the course page corresponding to their membership when members register. You can create the logon field and the logon field on the Field tab.
You can also define customized username information boxes and then specify whether you want this box to appear on the registry request document or the bank statement. It is great for including members in a membership course where they try to measure where they are in their businesses. Here you will set up your payments portal so that you can resell your membership.
Type your own key and upgrade option. There are many ways to establish a membership. For example, you could have a basic free membership page that only needs one login to get instant exposure to all the contents of your site. It is possible to provide a membership with costs in order to get acces to contents on your website which will be published over a longer term.
And you can provide a number of membership options that allow your members to get better control over more select product or contents based on their membership tier. Usually, a standard method of setting up more than one membership or membership tier is this: Complimentary Membership - This allows subscribers to view parts of the course contents; if it is an on-line course, this includes the introduction lesson.
It is the intention to interest the users for the products in such a way that they can register for the membership with costs. This second membership tier usually involves accessing the meats of your products or courses. You can also get full control over your products, services and course contents when you provide an on-line course.
A further commonly used name for a second stage membership would be Premium Membership. Goldmembership - this third membership stage usually involves exceptional value beyond the basic products, services or courses you offer. Examples of services with this third membership stage are counseling, lifelong membership, privately grouped membership, expanded resource and tool availability.
In order to register a new membership in MemberPress, go to MemberPress > Memberhips and click New. Or you can see the membership lists you already have, with the address of each standard subscription page. You are now prepared to fill in the conditions for your membership. Each membership (or membership level) allows you to define a fee.
Keeping the prize at 0 would keep the membership free. When you specify a one-time accounting method, you must determine whether the member has lifelong account privileges or membership expires. They can also choose whether they want a probationary membership or not. So, if you want to offer a 7-day free evaluation version for your membership, you can do that too.
All of these can be configured by setting up your new membership within the Membership Agreement at the top right of your Edit Membership page. I' ve fixed my free membership at $0 with lifetime account. I' m setting my Silver Membership Membership Policy to $10 per monthly perpetual payment.
My Gold Membership conditions are fixed at $15 per monthly per year. If you create a new membership, you will find all your membership choices at the bottom of the page. You can use these choices to overwrite many of the defaults you have under MemberPress Option. I' ll come back to these choices during the course of this Tutorial.
When you have decided on your membership level and the conditions for each of your membership, it's your turn to think about how you want your user to sign up for your membership. For each new membership you generate, MemberPress defaults to creating a MemberPress registry page for you. Simply go to the permanent link under the heading of your membership.
However, since these sites are outside Divi (i.e. you cannot use Divi Builder on these sites), it is better if we use a short code to provide our sign-up page on a site that you can build with Divi Builder. However, if you do not use Divi Builder on these sites, you may not be able to use Divi Builders. You' ll find the speed dial for your membership at the end of your Edit Membership when you edit a particular membership.
You can find them in the Membership Option section on the Register tab. This short code will get you started creating a new registry page to view your registry request page. I' ll explain later in the workshop how to create a registry page. Complete the creation of your application with Divi Builders.
In the Membership Option field on your Edit Membership page, select the option to select the customized email on the Thank You page.
It' a good suggestion to have user-defined thank yous/messages for each of your memberships so that you can give your members information about that membership. If, for example, you are providing a free membership course and a fee-based membership course, you will want to provide different inclusion detail for each, as the course will be different.
When you have a paying membership, the account will be directed to the standard registry page to proceed to payment. If you have a customized registry page with the short code of the registry request, the visitor will still be directed to the Permalink registry page associated with that particular membership. I will give some hints on how to create the cash register a little later.
Please note: If you offer a free membership, the member will be directed directly to the thank you page, which can be fully customised with Divi Build. Dealing with the enrollment procedure and on-boarding for your member site is crucial to your business performance. Everything should run smooth and people should get the information they need to get to your site as quickly as possible.
MembersPress does an outstanding job of processing all e-mail alerts for your members and your administrator. In addition, e-mails with merger tag can be customised to show user-specific information. Even be able to build your own matching tag to view your own forms that you can build in your registry and accounts forme.
MemberPress e-mail alerts are ideal for automated member logistic. However, you should consider taking your member site to the next stage by incorporating your members into an e-mail based marketplace (or autoresponder). As you can in MemberPress for your membership creating a drop for your contents (more on this later), you can also creating an e-mail with an e-mail campaigns.
The great thing is that every single weeks you can drop e-mails that match the new contents you publish every single weeks. You can, for example, plan email to alert members to review the new available contents. In order to include an auto responder, you need to download the custom auto responder software by going to MemberPress > Activate > Add-Ons and selecting Install for the auto responder of your choices.
If you have a particular email chimp accounts, for example, you can add individuals to this email chimp accounts by downloading the add-on and going to MemberPress > Options > Customizing and then clicking it. The protection of your contents with MemberPress is very simple to realize with MemberPress Rules. It' s best to begin to create a rule as soon as all your contents (pages, contributions, etc...) are available.
In order to generate a new set of articles, go to MemberPress > Rules and click New. If you' re making a new policy, you can choose the contents you want to protect, the membership or member you want to grant permission to, and even set a period of grace to transfer the contents to the member.
However, you can overwrite these defaults for each membership with the unauthorized access preferences located at the bottom of the Edit rules page for each individual policy you created. One of the most potent functions of membership is the Drip/Expiration option available when making a membership policy.
The drop in your contents relates to the gradual sharing of contents to your members over a certain amount of iteration. Prohibits individuals from using (or downloading) all your contents within the first weeks (or day) and then requesting a return. If you had chosen to share your precious contents bit by bit each and every few months, you'd be more likely to stay with them for the long term.
It is always performed when you are creating a rules for your own entries. Choose in the field Edit & Edit which items you want to drop and who has acces to them. Specify when you want the information to be available. Here I will show you how to drain the course syllabus.
Let's say you want to give one class a month to those with a silver membership. First, you must recreate a set of rules. Begin by entering the name of the page I want to secure, "Silver Course Unit 1". Next, insert an accessibility state. Choose the membership in the first drop-down list and then the Silver Membership in the second so that it says "Membership is Silver Membership".
Let the contents drop 0 and a half trading days after purchasing a Silver Membership. The new member now has instant acces to the first session as soon as they purchase the membership. You will now need to set up a 7-day step by step policy for each of the following course units.
In the next tutorial (Silver Course Tutorial 2), for example, I would adjust my drop to occur 7 workingdays after the member buys a membership. Silberkurs lessons 3 would have 14 workingdays after and so on. When I want all my free members to have simultaneous free course entry, I can simply do so with a new policy.
There are many ways to address proprietary contents. When I now make a new policy, I can choose my proprietary contents as subpages of the free course (my parents' page). Then, I want to make sure that all membership has full rights to the contents, so that those who buy Silber - or Goldmemberships from the beginning also have free rights to the contents.
Lastly, you allow the contents to drop 0 day after registration of members. The groups are one of a kind for Memberpress, and as already stated, they allow you to set up the user comparator quickly and easily. Grouping allows a user to modify the membership within that group. So for example, a user can pick "Other Membership" on their accounts page and then pick a new schedule from the pop-up menu.
In case you decide for another chargeable scheme (e.g. an upgrade), you can use the map in the data base to make the transaction easy. Since I have three membership (Free, Silver and Gold), I have included them in a group named "Our Memberships". Go to MemberPress > Groups and click on New.
Then, under Group Options, include all three membership levels in the group. From now on, members can modify their membership through their accounts. Obviously, there are so many different shades associated with a member site because so much will depend on the kind of products you offer and the membership scheme you like.
The reason I took a three-tier membership course as my example in this example was because I thought it was a favorite site and enabled me to provide most of the features you might need for many different types of membership pages. Good tidings are that you have all the parts for one member page.
All you need now is your designs and contents. You' re on your own for the contents. The next thing I'll show you is how to use Divi Builders and Learning Management Layout Pack to easily create your member page.
