Membership is officially here, giving you everything you need to create a robust membership experience for your website, online store or blog.
These new features make it easy to integrate membership programs on your site and open up a variety of cool new opportunities, like photography websites where members can download special prints, or a conference portal where only registered attendees can access event information from members only areas.
Pro sites can have up to 20 members (UPDATE: Pro sites can now have up to 100 members!) and Business sites can have unlimited members and member registration. Lets take a closer look at some key elements of the new experience.
Streamlined Login and Registration
Login and registration windows make it easy for new visitors to signup and returning members to access members only content.
Designed as a modal, login/register provides a polished user experience guaranteed to impress your visitors. The login/register link is automatically added to your main navigation (UPDATE: We've added an option for you to hide the "Log In" link in your site navigation menu, if desired.) Alternatively, you can link to this login/register modal with a button placed anywhere within your site -- check out the video above for details.
Member registration is available for the Business plan, and can be enabled and managed from Settings > Members.
Group and Page Management
Control [access to content] and manage groups of members by creating member groups. This is a great solution for large membership sites with lots of content and members.
We designed these features with an eye toward flexibility, we want you to build the membership site that works best for you with minimal feature limitations.
Group and page management features are available for both Pro and Business plans.
More Membership Features:
- Customize invitation emails and direct invite links
- Bulk add members via CSV
- Member and group search
- Password reset for individual member accounts
Membership is not yet available on the Designer Platform, but we are working on it, and hope to release it within the month.
We’d like to thank everyone who participated in the membership beta, without your hard work and feedback membership wouldn’t be where it is today. This was a massive project and a highly requested feature, so please let us know what you think, we can’t wait to see the amazing new membership sites you build!
