Membership plans are the core of the plugin. With no membership configured, you cannot sort any kind of content. You can configure any membership plan you want. To create a new membership plan, go to Membership -> Plans and click on Add Plan.
Now you can configure the general settings of the plan and of the content included.
To configure the general settings of a membership plan, click on the “Settings” option of the page.
Firstly, select the product you want to assign to the membership. By purchasing this product, users will be able to access the content of the plan.
Product variations will be included in the list. In any case, even if not mandatory, we suggest to select only “Virtual”products.
Now with the “Duration” option, set for how many days the content will be available to all members of the membership. Set to zero to offer unlimited access to contents.
With the option “Linked Plans” you can link different plans. In this case, selecting a new plan, all members of the “Golden” membership will have access to all contents of the linked plan.
“Show contents in Membership History”: this option lets members of a membership to see the complete list of the contents of the plan from the “My Account” page.
If you have configured the membership plan and selected all elements included, click on “Save” button to save changes. Now, a complete list with selected elements for the membership is available in the bottom of the page.
If you can see next to the element the name of the category it belongs to, this element has been added from the section “Planned items” together with all other elements in the same category.
You can remove an element directly from the list only if it has been associated directly from detail page and not massively by specifying a category or a tag.
This list of elements will be available to users in “My Account” page (if so set) or in any part of your site where you decide to show it through the shortcode. You can edit elements from this panel: click on “Add title”, drag and drop the block into the list to divide it into sections and give a name to the new section.
You can also sort your elements differently and easily by simply dragging and dropping them.
By default, non-registered users cannot purchase a membership. To edit this behavior, activate the “Allow guests to purchase membership related products” option in YITH Plugins -> Membership > Settings.
This way, any user will be free to purchase a membership, with no need to be registered to the site. After the purchase, the system will create a membership with no user linked.
Administrators can link manually the related user to the membership when they want by accessing to the detail of the membership and selecting the user with the specific option.
You won’t be able to change or edit this user once added.
