Muut (Forum) Setup Guide
The setup guide below is meant to show you the fastest way to start a Muut account and get connected to MemberSpace. There are many options and configurations you can choose in Muut, but we recommend you wait to do most of that work after you have connected to MemberSpace.
Sign up for a Muut account here: https://muut.com/pricing. You must be on the "SMALL" plan or higher for our integration to work.
Select just the forum option on the Muut welcome screen and click "Next".
Enabled Private messaging if you want (we recommend you do so your members can message each other privately) and click "Save".
Scroll to the bottom of the theme page and click "Skip and customize later..."
Click on "Settings" on the right.
Click on "Federated IDs".
In your MemberSpace backend, click on Settings > Integrations > Muut
Then in Muut, copy the "API key" and "Secret key":
And paste them into the API key and Secret key field in MemberSpace:
For the Community Name, look at the code below and copy just this part:
Paste it into the Community Name field in MemberSpace:
If you've create any Member Plans you can choose which one(s) grant access to your Muut forum.
Click "Integrate with Muut" and then add the link we give you as a text link wherever you want your Muut forum to output. We recommend you choose a Member Page so only members (on specific Member Plans) can access the forum.
When testing your forum, be sure you:
- Are a member of a plan that has access to the forum.
- Are logged into your member account on your website.
- Are testing the page on your live website in an incognito or private browser window (i.e. you're not logged into your MemberSpace backend).
