In this article, you will learn which are the options in this tab and what's each one for. Please see the image below: 




1. Membership Name: This is a Mandatory field (*), this means that you can not save any change without filling this field. 

This name will appear in the checkout page as well, that's why we recommend to add a one-word name.  

Also, the Membership Plan name will appear at the top of each tab, this way is easier to know which membership you are editing. 


2.  After Sign Up, Set Account Status As: This option will allow you to select the status of the members as soon as they sign up.  In the past, this was an Advanced Setting that worked for all membership plan at once, but now you can select the status per membership plan. 

Find below the 3 options you can select:  

  • Active Account. This will make the member active as soon as she or he creates the account, the account will be visible on the site right away.
  • Inactive Account. Requires Email Verification.  This will make sure the account is not active unless they verify the email that they receive, once they click on the verify email link the account will be visible.
  • On Hold, Requires Admin Approval. If the member signs up they are going to be on hold and not visible. If you want to approve the member you will need to find the member in Members >> Search Members, once you see the member click on Actions then click on Quick Edit. Change the Account Status to Active Account.
    You can find an article about this setting accessing our documentation here: Manually Approve New Member Signups.




3.  Redirect Page After Login: The default option is: /account/home. We do not recommend to change the default link, it could cause issues when members try to log in. 


4. Sign Up Email Sent: This is the email your members will receive right after they signed up. This is email is sent automatically by the system. 

If the membership plan is Free please select the email Template: Welcome-basic- [Action-required] Please verify your email. 

If the membership plan is Paid please select the email Template: Welcome-paid- [Action-required] Please verify your email.
Send Copy of Email to Default Website Email Address: If this setting is checked (Default), the system will send a copy of this email to the owner of the site (Default Website Email Address).    


5. Upgrade Email Sent: Choose an email template to be sent after member upgrades to this membership plan. 

Send Copy of Email to Default Website Email Address: If this setting is checked (Default), the system will send a copy of this email to the owner of the site (Default Website Email Address).    


6. Sign Up Page Sidebar: This is the sidebar that will appear in the checkout page, right next to the new member contact information and credit card fields. 

The option we recommend to choose is: No Sidebar. 

Please do not select any of the default ones: Homepage with Map, Lead Page Sidebar, Member Profile Page, Member Search Result, Post Search Result and Post Single Page. We do NOT recommend to use these sidebars because they contain links and you don't want that your members leave the checkout page to follow a link that will redirect them somewhere else. If you want to create a new sidebar for the checkout page please make sure that it doesn't have any links. 


7. Sign Up Page Sidebar Position: Choose if you want the signup page sidebar in the right or left side. 


8.  Profile Page Sidebar: The default one is: Member Profile Page. However, you can add you own sidebar or choose any of the ones in the list. 


9. Membership Plan Search Results URL: Enter the URL slug you would like to use on your live site to display a search results page containing all of the members at this membership plan. IMPORTANT - It is NOT possible to use the slug "pro" as it will break this feature. If you need to use "pro", please try "pro-plan" to resolve this issue.

For example: If you are editing the Premium Membership, you can add in this field the word "Premium" and the system will create a new page called "Premium". 

You can find this page in the following link: yourdomain.com/premium


10.  Pre-Select Top Category: Select if a member will have a "Top Category" selected when they signup. 

Keep in mind that they can change this selection. However, it will be pre-selected when they see the Contact Details form for the first time.
Please reference image below to see where the pre-selection will be located.


11. Pre-select Listing Type: Select if a member will have a "Listing Type" selected when they signup. 

Keep in mind that they can change this selection. However, it will be pre-selected when they see the Contact Details form for the first time. 

Please reference image below to see where the pre-selection will be located. 




12. Profile Page Badge: This badge will appear at the top right of the member profile. 


If you purchased the "Member Profile Badges” Add-On or have the VIP Add-Ons installed, then you will have the option at the bottom of the general tab (See the first image above) to upload your badge.


Example:




13. Search Results Badge: This badge will appear in all search results when a member is listed in that specific membership plan.

Example: 





14. Member Dashboard Badge: This badge will appear in the member dashboard. 


The idea of this badge is that your members copy and paste the code (shown in the image below) into their website's source code. This will help them to attract more clients. 


Example: 




15. Enable Search Results Highlight? This add-on highlights members of specific membership plans within the member search result pages of your website. 

You can customize the border and change the border color, text color, border width, the text message displaying, the font size, text position and the border-radius.
