Website admins are always encouraged to set up and create their own membership plans to match their website goals. 

Newly launched websites include several default membership plans, including the “General User” membership plan. 

The General User is the type of Membership Plan that is targeted to visitors, individuals that want to be part of the directory to:

  • Look for members because the site might be Members Only.
  • Individuals that want to get a benefit only if they are part of the directory.
  • Use the Favorites Add-on functionality to save Posts and member profiles that are searchable on the website.

By default this type of profile is non-searchable meaning that they are not going to create posts on the website, this is just its default functionality but the admin can make them searchable and they can create posts too.

If the settings need to be updated, please go to Finance >> Membership Plans >> General User >> Edit 

Here are instructions on how to edit the settings to make them searchable and allow them to post content: 

Finance » Membership Plans - Search Visibility

Finance » Membership Plans - Post Publishing
