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.
