WordPress Simple Membership Join Us Page shows you how to manage and edit the page adding registration forms and more.

Last Updated: July 28, 2017

Latest News: I have added a link to the footer.

The Join Us page is an important page to set up from the beginning. In this page you will show your members what to expect from signing up for a free or a paid membership account. You can include any information that you wish to share with your future members.

This post shows you in a very simple steps how to edit and configure the Join Us page.

WordPress Simple Membership Join Us Page Steps

Note: Before you begin setting up the page, remember that all the pages are created automatically when you first install the plugin. If for example the Join Us page is missing you will have set up the page again and add the URL under the General Settings tab. 

Step 1 ) Go to WP Membership -> Settings -> Page Settings to view the URLs you will be working with. In the following image you can see two pages. These are the pages you will be working with.

  • /membership-registration/ = the full URL is http://localhost/wordpress/membership-join/membership-registration/
  • /membership-join/ = the full URL is http://localhost/wordpress/membership-join/

Note: Your URLs will be different the ones above.


Step 2 ) Go to Pages in your WordPress admin panel and locate Join Us page. Open up the page for editing. You will see something similar to what is illustrated in the following image.

Note: In the image above the URL for Join Us Page URL ends in /membership-join/. This is the page that is generated when the plugin is installed for the first time. You can customize and add your own URL as long as you add the correct shortcode and you add the full URL as illustrated in the image above.

Here you will start adding your own text and information you want your members to read before they sign up including links to other pages, forms and images. You can add as much information as you want or start from scratch and rewrite the whole content.


Step 3 )  The following image shows you the Join Us image. This image is automatically added when you install the plugin. This is the image you will use to link to your Registration Page.

Note: You can add your own image if you like.

Steps to take to link the Image to the Registration page:

  • Select the image then click on the Insert/edit link.
  • Make sure you made a note of the Registration page as pointed out in Step 1 ) above.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to add the link.
  • Now your image will be linked to the Registration page, that is how simple it is.


Step 3-a )  The following image Insert/edit link shows you the the URL field where you enter your Registration page URL.  Make sure you click on Add Link button once you are finished.


Adding Membership Levels

Step 4 )  Now you can add any other content after the image. You can even add some Paid PayPal membership buttons.

  1. Just setting up Simple Membership & hope you can help with a couple of queries on Join Us & Registration

    The Join Us page indicates that’s the place where the customer pays – [ ==> Insert Payment Button For Your Paid Membership Levels Here <== ]

    Once he's paid, what directs him to the registration page? Seems more logical that he should complete his reg details and then hit the pay button?

    Do we link the Register button (on the Reg page) to the Registration Completed page?

    Guidance appreciated



    • Hi Terence, thank you for your question. Once the member has paid he is then redirected to the registration page. You don’t have to do anything, the plugin takes care of the whole process for you. I hope that helps you. If you have any more questions please let me know.

      • Thanks – understanding the process better now! On a different topic – how does the plugin provide security? Once a member has joined, can he just share his login details ? Must be something preventing this – I hope??

        • Hi Terence, preventing people from sharing their detials is somthing that this plugin cannot manage or control. To tell you the truth I don’t think any security plugin out there can control if a person shares their login details. I hope this helps you further.

  2. I do not see the Join Us page is Pages in the admin panel.

    This is the instruction given:
    Step 2 ) Go to Pages in your WordPress admin panel and locate Join Us page. Open up the page for editing. You will see something similar to what is illustrated in the following image.

    • Hi Debbie, I think you are the same person I replied to in the forum.

      If you look at the image in Step 1 ) you will see an entry for Join Us Page URL. The URL ends in /membership-join/. This is the page the plugin creates when it is installed and activated. You can change this URL if you want as long as you add the correct shortcode to the page and add the full URL.

      Let me know if you need more help.

      Kind regards
