Members Added

When members are added to your membership site they are also added to WP Users. It is important to keep this in mind for some of the plugins enabling features. For example if you decide to enable hide Adminbar in the Settings, you will also need to know what role is assigned to each member added.

The following is an example of adding two members to your site and assigning two different User roles.

Step 3 ) The following image Members displays members added to the website. Once you have members added to your site you can organize how to search or view the members list. In the following list 2 members are added and are active.

  • Free Membership Level = these members are assigned to the Subscriber user role in the site.

Note: In your case you might have multiple membership levels and assigned different User roles to each membership level.
