What is the Member Menu?

The Member Menu allows your members to easily navigate to the various protected Member Pages to which they have access.  Members who are logged in to their accounts can locate the Member Menu via the default floating Member Button as well as any Member Link Options on your website:

Within the Member Menu, members will see their profile picture, the "Your Account" button (where members can manage their Plans, Profile, and Billing information), buttons linking to all available Member Pages to which the member has access, and MemberSpace branding (this can be removed by joining our Growing Plan or higher).

The Member Menu is completely optional.  If you do not wish to use the Member Menu, you'll need to be sure to set up site navigation for members somewhere else on your website as explained in these guides.

How to use the Member Menu

To enable the Member Menu, simply add at least one Member Page to the menu.  Then, the Member Menu will automatically appear for all logged-in members who have access to that content.

Adding Member Pages to the Member Menu

You can add a page to the Member Menu within each Member Page's settings.  By default, any Member Pages you added to your account before March 7, 2022 will NOT appear in the menu, though you can edit their page settings to add them.

The order in which pages appear in the menu can be changed by dragging and dropping Member Pages to rearrange them in your MemberSpace backend.

To add a page to the Member Menu, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to "Member Pages" in your MemberSpace backend.  If you are adding a new page, click "Protect Member Pages" on the left:

    If you are adding an existing page to the Member Menu, click "Edit Page" next to the Member Page you'd like to add:

  2. Scroll down to "Include this page in your Member Menu?" and toggle the switch ON to add the page to the menu:

  3. Once you add a page to the Member Menu, you will need to enter a title for the page and can choose an emoji (optional): The Member Menu page title and emoji will determine how your Member Page appears in the Member Menu:

    If you do not wish to use an emoji, you can check the box next to "Don't include an emoji in this title" in the Member Page's settings, and you'll see the emoji disappear beside the Member Menu page title:Please note, emojis will render differently on different devices.

  4. Click "Update Now" at the bottom to save your changes.

Members will see page options in the Member Menu depending on their active Member Plan(s).  Therefore, you can add content from various plans to the menu, and members will only see the pages to which they have access.

Member Pages set to drip out access or become available on a specific day/time will display in the Member Menu at their designated time.

Adding Mass-protected Pages to the Member Menu

There is no limit to the number of pages you can include in the Member Menu.  However, each page must be added as an individual Member Page in your MemberSpace backend; mass-protected pages will not appear in the Member Menu.  If you want to create a link to a collection of pages (i.e. a blog), you can make the root page (i.e. /blog) a Member Page, add it to your Member Menu, then link out to any subpages on that root webpage.  You could also link to a specific category page by protecting that particular page as a Member Page and adding it to your Member Menu.
Content Links cannot currently be added to the Member Menu.  However, you can incorporate Content Links in your Member Menu by creating a page on your website to house all Content Links.  From there, you can protect that webpage as a Member Page in your MemberSpace backend and add it to the Member Menu.

Disabling the Member Menu

To disable the Member Menu, simply remove all Member Pages from the menu.  When there are no Member Pages added to the Member Menu, it will not display.  Instead, the default floating Member Button and any Member Link Options on your site will open the Account area. 

You can remove Member Pages from the Member Menu by following the steps below.

  1. Go to "Member Pages" in your MemberSpace backend and click "Edit Page" next to a Member Page:

  2. Scroll down to "Include this page in your Member Menu?" and toggle the switch OFF to remove the page from the menu:

  3. Click "Update Now" at the bottom to save your changes.

Embedding the Member Menu on your website

If you add a Member Link Embed somewhere on your website, the Member Menu will appear the same as it does when accessing it via the default floating Member Button or any other Member Link Popups.  The only difference is the Member Menu will be embedded on the website as opposed to opening in a popup.

Changing the Look & Feel of the Member Menu

Styling options for the Member Menu are available within the Look & Feel editor.  There, you'll be able to change the appearance of the "Your Account" button, Member Menu buttons, and Member Menu background using the styling options on the left.
